The Met Gala is one of the most anticipated events of the year in the fashion world, but also one of the most mysterious. Every year, on the first Monday of May, the Metropolitan Museum of New York dresses up to welcome celebrities, designers, and models who parade down its red carpet in the most spectacular and innovative outfits.
The red carpet at the Met Gala is a major highlight of the event, and it is where celebrities and fashion icons showcase their style and creativity. The outfits worn to the Met Gala are often elaborate, avant-garde, and designed specifically for the event. The outfits are often a collaboration between the celebrity and a designer, and they can take months to create.
The event has been held since 1948, and it has grown to become one of the most important events in the fashion industry, with a guest list that includes some of the biggest names in entertainment, fashion, and art.
The Met Gala is held on the first Monday in May, and the theme for each year’s event is chosen by the Costume Institute. The theme sets the tone for the dress code of the evening, and attendees are expected to dress in accordance with the theme.
This year’s theme is in honor of legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld, who passed away in 2019. The exhibition, entitled Karl Lagerfeld: a Line of Beauty, will review the German creator’s career at the helm of the French house Chanel, from his arrival in 1983 to his last runway show in 2019. Guests at the gala are expected to be inspired by Lagerfeld’s unique and sophisticated style, which combined classic elements with modern, avant-garde touches.
The exhibition will showcase more than 150 pieces from the Chanel archive, as well as photographs, sketches, and videos illustrating Lagerfeld’s career and legacy in the fashion industry. From his pioneering work at Balmain and Patou to his tenure at Chloé, Fendi, and Chanel, the exhibition will showcase Lagerfeld’s signature designs that continue to inspire fashion enthusiasts worldwide. Additionally, the exhibition will feature exclusive pieces from his eponymous label, Karl Lagerfeld, cementing his position as one of the most significant designers of our time.
The live stream will be hosted by Vogue and will be accessible on their website on May 1st. It will also be available on Vogue’s social media channels (Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook) – from 6:30 pm ET.
This year’s Met Gala will feature an array of distinguished hosts. Representing Vogue, La La Anthony, an accomplished actor, and producer, will be accompanied by writer Derek Blasberg and Saturday Night Live comedian Chloe Fineman. Additionally, Emma Chamberlain will act as Vogue’s special correspondent for the event.
Each year, the Met Gala showcases a diverse selection of hosts and co-chairs. For this year’s affair, Anna Wintour will be joined by an impressive lineup of actors, writers, and athletes, including Michaela Coel, Roger Federer, Dua Lipa, and Penelope Cruz.
