We’ll send you a rundown of the top five stories every day

Live events like award shows and the Met Gala, which is Monday, require a bit of work to keep up with.

There’s the live televised coverage, which will be happening for nearly three hours on E! starting at 6:30 p.m. Eastern. But you can also keep an eye on the happenings on social media — specifically Instagram.

That’s where you’ll get exclusive sneak peeks at what your favorites are wearing, via their stylist, their favorite designer or sometimes even their makeup artist. So, we’ve compiled a list of people who we think are the ones to watch on Monday night, in addition to, you know, Giuliana Rancic.

Perhaps the most important person to be following on Monday is Jahleel Weaver, Rihanna’s stylist. She’s one of the co-hosts of the gala, and is sure to floor us.

Often working alongside Fitzsimons, makeup artist Ariel Tejada works with the Kardashian-Jenner family quite frequently, so he’s a good one to watch.

While most designers are far too busy on Monday to actively keep on updating their social media presences with who’s wearing their designs, one designer’s team is particularly dedicated to updating fans, and that’s Christian Siriano.

He’s been known to dress multiple women on one single red carpet before, and with regular clients including Danielle Brooks, Whoopi Goldberg, Leslie Jones and Janet Mock, he’s always a fun follow for these nights.

In a category all on her own, we suggest you all definitely follow Eva Chen, who’s Instagram’s head of fashion partnerships, by Monday, where she’ll be showing off videos of her kids while getting ready, and likely showing videos of her freaking out over seeing, oh, we don’t know, Rihanna.

She’s good at this.

And @VogueMagazine, obviously

Vogue’s Instagram and entire social media presences across the board will be Met Gala heavy. Since Vogue’s got a big stake in this night being a success, they’ll probably have exclusive sneak peeks at some of the night’s biggest names, and a good roundup of the fashions thus far throughout the night.

And we at Mic will be filing multiple stories that night as stars turn up to the 2018 Met Gala, so we’ll keep you posted.
