The 2016 Met Gala takes place on Monday, May 2. It is one of the biggest —if not the biggest— fashion events of the year. I mean, I still think about Rihanna's 2015 marigold gown and the ensuing pizza and Spongebob memes. If you are dying to see the dresses, you want to know how you can watch the 2016 Met Gala, right? Well, I've got thrilling news. You can easily get a front row seat to the Met Gala and for free.

You can watch the 2016 Met Gala via the brand new Vogue iPhone app. Not only do you get a daily dose of the latest and greatest fashion, beauty, runway, and celeb style news, along with an assortment of lifestyle content, but you will get unprecedented access to the 2016 edition of the Met Gala.

Come for the evening's inimitable fashion and stay for the mag's exclusive behind-the-scenes coverage and the afterparties. OMG, right?! No matter where you are, your phone will morph into an electronic handcuff during the Met Gala because of this app.

The app is free, is exclusive to the iPhone, and it is available now.
 

This is the kind of coverage you can expect. So grab the app for the Met Gala.

Keep it for this sort of access, after the Met Gala has come and gone and the dress memes have been exhausted.

Here's RiRi at the 2014 Met Gala.

And at the same event in 2012. 

In 2011, she rocked this dress.

My point in sharing Rihanna's Met Gala gowns? This is the type of stuff you will see right away if you download the new app. Settle in with your phone this coming Monday night and "ooh" and "aah" over dresses that will slay all.

Oh, and Vogue's fearless leader Anna Wintour offered this intro to the app. Enjoy.
