What actually happens at the Met Gala?
Widely esteemed as one of the noticeable and grand social events, The Met Gala has always intrigued us. As we know, each year has a theme, and the guests have to dress accordingly. Because it’s a fashion-world event, designers work closely with celebrities on outfits. Moreover, people are generally encouraged to dress in capital-F Fashion rather than play it safe. Besides the theme, it includes a cocktail hour and a formal dinner. The cocktail hour is the most interesting part as the celebrities arrive to walk on the red carpet and go onto to stairs, and vanish. However, what happens behind those stairs is a mystery that is yet to be solved. Before the dinner, the guests are seated and are entertained by some outstanding live stage performances.
Met Gala 2021
After last year’s event got canceled, the world was looking forward to this year’s Met Gala. Looks like Fashion’s biggest night out was also not unaffected by the global pandemic. As per the reports, The Met Gala 2021 that was scheduled to take place in April has been delayed till September. But the good thing is that we are just a couple of days away from this year’s fun. Be it 2015’s China: Through the Looking Glass or 2018’s Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, the themes have always grabbed the spotlight. And to add to your excitement, let me tell you that this year’s theme is no stranger to the usual chitter-chatter.
This year’s theme, ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’ will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the institute. Moreover, the authorities have decided that there will be a duo of Met Gala’s. The first part will be taking place in September, while the second part in May 2022. The theme of the second part, to be more specific, will be throwing up the narratives that relate to the complex and layered histories of the development of American fashion. The official Instagram page of the fashion institute in April announced the themes. Not just stopping there, it also hinted at the interiors as well. Met Gala 2021 will be dominated by the customs of 20th and 21st-century fashion. Without a doubt, it’s going to be yet another memorable and antique Gala.
Who is invited?
Each year Vogue’s iconic editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, organizes the fashion calenders exclusive event. And most likely, without any changes, the guest list will have the names of all A-listers from the industry. The guest list however, is never known prior to the event but this year, there has been a leak on social media. And being on the radar, the seating plan was doing rounds on the internet lately. The highly unusual seating plan has Donatella Versace, and Naomi Campbell seated beside the TikTok star Addison Rae. Many more such not so genuine arrangements have brought about a lot of befuddlement. Since the authenticity has not been confirmed, it can’t be called legitimate. Looks like another year we won’t be able to get insights into the behind the stair scenes.
