Prada, along with Elsa Schiaparelli, headline this year's exhibit, titled "Impossible Conversations." On display through August, the exhibit highlights the two Italian women designers from very different eras.

Also on hand for the high-fashion red carpet were " Mad Men's" Jessica Pare, actresses Greta Gerwig and Lena Dunham ( "Girls"), Bruno Mars, Amber Heard, Donald Trump, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel Zoe and Dakota Fanning.
