The much-awaited Met Gala, which takes place every year, is making a comeback this September after a virtual event took place in 2020.
From celebrity star-studded red carpet looks to an opulent décor enchanting the venue, fans wait in anticipation for this themed event, which was born to raise funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
The exciting news was announced on the Met Gala’s official page with an image of Anna Wintour captioned, “We are being treated this year with a two-part extravaganza. The first exhibition, titled ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’, opens in September and will focus on contemporary fashion. The first instalment (and much anticipated!) of the Met Gala is planned for 13 September 2021.
“The second, ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ will open – as is tradition – on the first Monday of May in 2022 and will celebrate 300 years of American fashion history.”
With a more intimate gathering planned this year due to the pandemic, the invite-only event is sure to hold the same theatrical draw that it does every year, turning the occasion into a fancy-dress affair, with loyal fans constantly on the watch of who wore what.
According to Page Six, the CFDA chairman Tom Ford has been approached to co-host along with American poet Amanda Gorman and Anna Wintour.
However, the institution is yet to release details on the specific attendees and total quantity of guests, who they shall be hosting this year, with more details on the event format to be shared this year.
