The Met Gala is making a return.
The annual prestigious fashion event, which normally takes place on the first Monday in May every year will shift to September this year with a Gen Z lineup of co-chairs.
Oscar nominee Timothee Chalamet will preside over the Gala alongside Grammy award-winning artist Billie Eilish, Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka and American poet Amanda Gorman.
Designer and Film Director Tom Ford, Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri, and Chief Content Officer and Global Editorial Director of Vogue Anna Wintour, will join the Gen Z superstars as the evening’s honorary chairs.
The September edition of the Gala will go by the theme ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’. According to the Met, the exhibition will consider the “modern vocabulary of American fashion.”
Guests ranging from top celebrities and fashion executives are expected to climb the famous Museum stair cladded in costumes that speak volume of American Independence.
“Each of the Met’s four co-hosts embodies the defining factor of American style: individualism. They may approach the concept differently, but their shared passion for expressing themselves through clothing connects with the exhibition’s theme,” Vogue disclosed in a statement.
The Met was cancelled last year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. In recent years at the ceremony, big stars such as Rihanna (2015’s jaw dropping yellow dress from Chinese designer Guo Pei), Lady Gaga (2019’s epic entrance in four different looks), Beyoncé (2015’s sheer Givenchy dress) and Kim Kardashian (2019’s tight nude Mugler dress) have by far established the event as one of the look-forward-to ceremonies in modern day.
