News flash: Fashion’s biggest night, Met Gala is set to return this year with a complete bang. Split into two parts, the gala will break its long-standing tradition of being held on the first Monday of May every year. Instead, we can look forward to a fall gala in September 2021 followed by another event in May 2022. Double doses of sartorial excess? We’re not complaining!
After being postponed last year indefinitely owing to the global pandemic, Met Gala will aim to celebrate the American fashion community and the challenges it faced due to Covid-19. Keeping this at the forefront of the event, the theme for the September edition will be ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’ which will lay emphasis on contemporary designs. While the second edition in May 2022 will revolve around the theme, ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion’ which aims to illustrate style through 300 years of personal and political historic narratives. History aside, celebrities turning up in the most striking outfits make a strong case for the night.
