Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn is shedding her ski gear and slipping into something a little more glam for this spring's Met Costume Institute Gala.

"Tory Burch is designing a custom dress for me, which I'm really excited about," Vonn, 25, said Friday during a visit to Us Weekly's New York City offices.

Burch has created "two completely separate designs," she says.

"One is a really long, pretty tight dress with long sleeves and a little train," she explains. "The other one crosses in front and has a little detail on the side."

Vonn -- who doesn't want to "give any secrets away" -- says the "designs look great. I'm looking forward to trying [the finished product] on!"

Vonn says she's looking forward to meeting Oprah Winfrey (they Skyped during the Olympics) and Michelle Obama, who is co-hosting the fete with Vogue's Anna Wintour and the The Gap's Patrick Robinson, on May 3. This year's theme is American Women: Fashioning a National Identity.

"I don't know who else is going to go. Maybe Justin Timberlake! I'm not sure if my husband is going..." she jokes to Us.
