Okay, the wifi is really being shoddy here,
00:03
but let's see if this works!
00:06
[upbeat jazzy music]
00:09
You go into this room and it's literally like
00:13
this office fully transported
00:15
to the bowels of the Met, basically.
00:19
And you're down there in bunker.
00:21
Like, you have to imagine,
00:23
this is where all of the content for Vogue.com
00:25
is being produced from the Met.
00:27
You're cuffed to your computer constantly.
00:29
There's wires everywhere.
00:31
It's stressful, but it's fun.
00:33
It's a lot of adrenaline.
00:35
You don't see the light of day until the next morning.
00:39
[spirited orchestral music]
00:46
The pressure is on now.
00:48
But, you know, you can't, like,
00:50
you're representing Vogue, you can't look,
00:52
you have to look a certain way.
00:53
You have to look presentable and dress appropriately.
00:58
[instrumental funk music]
01:07
[First Girl] It's super hot,
01:09
it's in the basement of the Met,
01:10
there's a lot of people in a small room.
01:13
[Second Voice] We're in a basement in ballgowns
01:15
just sitting at a computer.
01:16
It makes no sense.
01:18
Everyone's saying Lady Gaga
01:20
is gonna be the most meme-able arrival,
01:23
so I'm just ready for the memes.
01:25
Speaking of Gaga, we just got a hot tip
01:27
that she's showing up with extreme, major gold lashes
01:32
that were handmade by her makeup artist.
01:34
So, yeah, trying to investigate that.
01:37
Wait, she is loving every second of this.
01:40
[reporters chatting]
01:42
[Reporter] She looks amazing.
01:44
She looks so good. She looks unbelievable.
01:46
How are those umbrella suspended?
01:48
She has people carrying them.
01:50
Oh, there's humans.
01:52
Yeah, she has people walking with her.
01:54
You know, I would be okay with just Ezra Miller though.
01:56
[Reporter] You know Ezra's gonna kill it.
01:58
Ezra's gonna kill!
01:59
Between that and Jared's head--
02:01
It's like everyone is--
02:02
I don't know what's going on.
02:03
What about something about having a pet?
02:05
Are writing a caption?
02:07
Yeah. Mini Me.
02:08
Something about Mini Me. Pet project?
02:11
[Reporter] Mini Me, it's cute.
02:12
You know they sat on it.
02:14
I like heavy is the head that holds the head.
02:15
I think it's the headiest thing without
02:17
the Shakespearian line. I know [laughs].
02:18
It's like a misquote.
02:19
[Reporter] I only have eyes for me?
02:20
Abby?
02:21
[Abby] Yeah?
02:21
Should we update the whole thing for Harry?
02:23
And the leg slit is what's really getting me.
02:26
[Reporter] How old is she?
02:27
She's 53.
02:29
I don't know why I knew that, but it's fine.
02:31
Her legs look incredible-- Sorry. [laughs]
02:36

02:40
They look really good. Oh my God!
02:42
Are we like allowed to--
02:44
I don't see why not.
02:45
So, I'll like narrow these down so there's no duplicates.
02:48
But this is for 6:30, right?
02:50
Yeah, so we should hold until 6:30.
02:53

03:00
What's it say on her?
03:02
Oh she's wearing the tight--
03:04
Dapper Dan?
03:05
[Reporter] I mean, I think this is probably going to be
03:07
the most wild year thus far.
03:09
We had some goals we wanted to hit.
03:12

[Woman] Usually during the performance,
04:59
we can sneak up and see whoever's performing.
05:01
It goes really quickly,
05:03
so you're sort of just,
05:07
your brain is mush.
05:08
You don't even know what happened once you leave.
