After being put on hold for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the most star-studded event in fashion, the Met Gala, is set to make a spectacular return later this year.

The famous fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute returns next week with a whole host of A-list of Hollywood stars, fashion moguls and creatives ready to flock the arena in a soiree of meticulously planned on themed looks.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming Met Gala.


With each of the co-hosts making their mark in fashion, it will include a cross-section of homegrown talent varying from Timothée Chalamet, famous singer Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka and Amanda Gorman who will serve as co-chairs, with Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri and Anna Wintour being the evening’s honorary chairs.


With each talent representing their own form of individualism, the hosts have been hand-picked to express the same vision as the exhibition’s theme, as they represent a distinct visual language for their public persona in the United States of America.
