Amanda Seyfried: I’ll rock the Met Ball

Amanda Seyfried is thrilled to “finally” be going to the Met Ball.

The actress is looking forward to next month’s Costume Institute Gala, known as the Met Ball, having never been before. The annual bash always attracts the most stylish stars and is regarded as the fashion world’s biggest red carpet event.

Amanda is thrilled to have been invited and is already thinking about what to wear on May 6.

"I'm going to the Met Ball for the first time. Finally!" she told USA Today. "I will be wearing Givenchy. I love those people.

"They're going to let me wear something awesome. I still haven't chosen between two [gowns]. I'm so excited! I have no idea what to expect and I'm actually OK with that."

Amanda is feeling more nervous about the Met Ball than she was before the Oscars.

"[Being around] fashion people,” she explained. "It's a really intimidating kind of thing.”

Beyoncé Knowles has been named honorary chairperson for the 2013 Met Ball, which is paying tribute to the punk movement this year. Beyoncé will join Anna Wintour, Riccardo Tisci and Rooney Mara as hosts.

Amanda was one of the most photographed stars in Hollywood during the awards season earlier this year. Her movie Les Misérables enjoyed great success and she attended glitzy ceremonies wearing a series of striking gowns.

The 27-year-old star has now revealed that the red Givenchy gown she changed into for her performance with the Les Misérables cast during the Academy Awards was her pick of outfits.

"It was actually my favourite dress of the entire awards season," Amanda gushed.
