Making the most of her Monday evening, Kate Upton was in NYC for the 2012 Met Gala earlier tonight (May 7).
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl pulled back her wavy blonde locks and donned a shimmery champagne-colored gown for the “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” shindig.
The annual fete finds actress Carey Mulligan acting as honorary co-chair alongside designer Miuccia Prada and US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, while Azealia Banks is lined up to perform.
As for the celebratory occasion, this year's rendition of the Met gala ushers in the 'Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations' exhibition exploring "the striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two Italian designers from different eras."
The display is described as being "inspired by Miguel Covarrubias's "Impossible Interviews" for Vanity Fair in the 1930s while featuring "orchestrated conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of their most innovative work."
