Featuring stunning designs by Olivier Theyskens, Iris Van Herpen, and Prabal Gurung, Thursday's ballet is sure to chock-full of everyone who's anyone among the fashion set. We got an exclusive glimpse behind-the-scenes of that rumored costume shop with some seriously gorgeous snapshots. See for yourself, below!
