An unprecedented look behind the scenes of two of New York’s premier cultural events, The First Monday in May follows the creation of the most attended fashion exhibition in the history of The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the 2015 Met Gala, the star-studded fundraiser that celebrates the opening of the exhibition. Acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Rossi (Page One: Inside the New York Times) follows Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine and longtime chair of the Met Gala, and Andrew Bolton, the iconoclastic curator who conceived the groundbreaking show, for eight months as they prepare for an evening they hope will take the worlds of art and fashion by storm. Featuring Rihanna, designers Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano, filmmaker Wong Kar Wai, and many more icons from the worlds of fashion, art, music and film.

Critics Consensus: First Monday in May may not resonate far beyond its target demographic, but for fashion aficionados, it should prove utterly absorbing.
