With such a limited invite list, Wintour is turning away scores of people who could easily afford the $30,000 tickets, but don't generate buzz or necessarily go with her brand, writes RealClearInvestigations.

The Met Gala - technically a fundraiser for the eponymous museum's Costume Institute - is the supreme see-and-be-seen fashion event in which celebrities typically ignore the annual theme in lieu of looking super hot. That, is open to everyone.

On the red carpet of the 2012 Met Gala, Rihanna went with an all-black ensemble that matched her now darker hair.

The pop fashionista is sure to be a source of inspiration herself this year, with the star being no stranger to incorporating her catholic roots into her provocative wardrobe. Where else could you find George Clooney and a Catholic Cardinal mingling with fashion designers?
