The Met Gala 2021 starts Monday; Here’s what to expect
One stunning event we lost to the pandemic was the glorious Met Gala. It has returned.
The Costume Institute has proposed a two-part Met Gala for 2021 and 2022 after last year’s postponement due to the covid-19 outbreak. “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” is the title of this year’s Met Gala display, which will debut Sept. 18. To kick off the Met Gala, a considerably smaller celebration is planned for this Monday, Sept. 13, pending federal guidelines.
A fundraiser for the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the event is traditionally held to coincide with the opening of the museum’s annual fashion display. The theme will honor American designers as well as cultural, political and social issues that transpired during the outbreak.
Co-chairs Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka, as well as honorary chairs Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri and Anna Wintour, will host the event on Monday. The red carpet will be narrower than normal due to pandemic limitations, with invites specifying a dress code influenced by American Independence.
In 2019, the Costume Institute brought out the theme of “Camp: Notes On Fashion.” These looks were stunning and over-the-top.
These artists drew on their looks to be silly, fun, glamorous and unique. From Gigi Hadid to Harry Styles, these looks were incomparable to any other.
Monday’s Met Gala will be nothing less than spectacular. It will touch the hearts of all as it brings out American values and independence. Happy Fashion Month!
