The Met Gala which happens every year on the first Monday of May, where some of the biggest names in Hollywood come to New York’s Met Museum, teaming up with exclusive fashion houses and tourists to help to raise money for the Costume Institute, was suspended last year due to the coronavirus pandemic and has finally made a return this September.
Fashion designer Tom Ford, Instagram boss Adam Mosseri and VOGUE’s Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour are chairing the event. The actor Timothée Chalamet, singer Billie Eilish, tennis star Naomi Osaka, and poet Amanda Gorman will be co-hosting the 2021 Met Gala but due to the ongoing pandemic, it has been divided into two parts.
