It’s a fashionista’s scheduling nightmare, and the morbid dream is coming to reality quicker than the stitching of a Chanel tweed suit. What happens when the matriarch and patriarch of the fashion industry, Anna Wintour of American Vogue and Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel throw events on the same day in different countries? We will soon find out, because apparently May 4th is fashion’s hottest date.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2015 Anna Wintour Costume Center Exhibition Gala has been the hottest ticket in New York since Wintour first organized it back in 1995. But that ticket could soon lose its shine as Chanel’s always elaborate cruise show is being held in Seoul, the exact same day.

Where will the editors go? What will the top models do? Will Rihanna be sitting front row in Korea or tripping in Tom Ford up the steps of the Met? Which one would you rather attend? The $25,000 a plate Met Gala or front row at one of the years hottest shows? Anna, if Kendall or Cara are too busy walking in the Chanel show I am always available to be a seat filler.
