Their first run was a film called The September Issue, documenting the making of the magazine’s biggest annual issue. This time, it gives us a behind the scenes look at one of the most coveted events in New York, the Met Gala. Last year’s exhibit was “China: Through the Looking Glass” and the movie gives us a look at everything that went into creating the exhibit and the gala itself, which hosts some of the biggest celebrities and names in fashion. The film is set to open the Tribeca Film Festival on April 13th. We can’t wait to see it!

In a video by luxury retailer Moda Operandi ironically titled “Everybody Knows About Fashion,” designers, models, editors, photographers, stylists and more test their nearest and dearest’s knowledge about what they really do at work. The result is a humorous slew of misconceptions about jobs and many mistaken industry names (“Imin” for Iman, Rosie O’Donnell rather than Assoulin and Martin Scorsese instead of Margiela).
