Dust off the couture and get ready, because the Met Gala 2021 is on! The Met Gala, which was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is all set to return in 2021.
Vogue’s Oscars of Fashion traditionally takes place on the first Monday of May. However, due to the surging cases of the virus, the event has been postponed to September 13, 2021. But with vaccine drives under way, the organizers are hoping that life will have returned to something closer to normal by September 2021.
A source told Page Six that it won’t be on the first Monday of the month as the date is already occupied by Labor Day. The insider added, “Even Anna Wintour can’t change a federal holiday,” and hinted that the theme for the night will be celebration of America and American designers.
The source also revealed that poet Amanda Gorman and CFDA chairman Tom Ford could act as host for the Met Gala this year. For the unversed, Amanda Gorman, a poet and activist is the 23-year-old breakout star of President Biden‘s inauguration. She also appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine’s May issue.
