The Met Gala is set to return this year after the 2020 edition was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Traditionally, the extravaganza falls on the first Monday in May, but the 2021 event will now happen on September 18.
The event will be co-chaired by Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, and Naomi Osaka and honorary chairs Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri, and Anna Wintour.
Also, this year the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s (Met) 2020 exhibition of "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," will become Act I of a two-part affair, reports foxnews.com. The annual fundraising galas take place in New York City and benefit the Met’s Costume Institute.
The dress code of this year is "American Independence" and part one, called "In America," will feature a small showcase this September, reports fox.news.com.
Part two will serve as a continued look into the life and times of the American fashion industry and will be unveiled on May 5, 2022, when the gala jumps back to its regularly scheduled programming with the introduction of "In America: An Anthology of Fashion."
