The Met Gala is one of the most important events on the fashion calendar each year, and this year’s edition is set to be no different.
The Costume Institute has engaged a slew of celebrities to co-chair the event, as it does every year, and this year Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively will be in charge.
The Met Gala is one of the biggest events in the annual fashion calendar and this year’s is expected to be no exception.
As is the case every year, the Costume Institute has enlisted a host of celebrities to co-chair the event, and this year Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively will take the reins.
Official co-chairs and hosts will be Regina King and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
The event, which is hosted by Vogue and held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art every year, kicks off the Costume Institute’s annual fashion display.
This year’s theme is Gilded Glamour, with White Tie as a nod to old-style 19th-century industrialisation while also emphasizing themes such as the haves and have-nots.
The Gala was first held in 1948, and only the upper crust of New York society, from fashion designers to the city’s elite and wealthiest, were invited.
People from the worlds of show business, fashion, and business, as well as others, are now welcome to attend.
Here’s everything you need to know about who might be in attendance at this year’s star-studded affair.
