The MET Gala 2020 was postponed due to the pandemic, but this year there will be one at the end of 2021
Ladies and gentlemen, our prayers have been heard, and we’ve been informed that there will be a MET Gala 2021!
After the 2020 event was canceled due to the pandemic caused by Covid-19, they decided that this year the biggest and most important event in the fashion industry will be held. The event planners, Andrew Bolton, commissioner for the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and Anna Wintour, commissioner and director of the Costume Institute, as well as editor of Vogue, have announced new dates. Even though it will not be held during spring, like in past years, we are happily waiting for a new date.
How will the MET Gala 2021 be like?
It will be divided into two events, the first one on September 18th of this year, closing Fashion Week in New York. We still don’t know all the details since it will adapt to the pandemic situation near the dates of the event.
The second event will be on May 5th of 2022, the date it would normally be held on. Once again, all the A-list celebrities will be gathered and available to be dressed by designers to showcase their proposals for that year.
The planners, and us, hope that by then, the pandemic conditions are more stable and the most important event for the industry can take place. The United States hopes that by September, vaccinations will advanced
What will be the theme for this year's Met Gala?
This event is known for its themes, some strange like “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” in 2018 or the “Notes on Camp” in 2019. This year has a big objective, therefore the theme for 2021 is “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” and “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” for 2022. The reason for these themes is to showcase the importance of the industry that has been greatly affected by the pandemic.
It is also an important year for the Costume Institute since it will celebrate its 75 years, and they couldn’t go by without focusing their celebration on the United States for both events.
Thank you 2021, you have listened to our prayers. There will be a MET Gala! More details will be revealed as we get closer to the date, but one thing is for sure, we will have a ceremony that gathers the most important celebrities to raise funds for the fashion industry. There will be a celebration!
