As well as being one of the biggest charity events in the world and arguably the most anticipated day for fashionistas, the Met Gala is also a very private celebration that only a privileged few can attend.
Since this is a charity event, tickets cost money and are very expensive. What’s more, what’s going on inside New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is almost a secret, since filtering of images during the party is prohibited.
All of this makes it the perfect venue for celebrities of all kinds who wish to join in the fun and also be used to greet them with Gala Co-Chair Anna Wintour.
Don’t miss a minute of this year’s Met Gala red carpet, where you can see what the most famous faces of international celebrity are wearing. Will there be a representative of Spanish fashion?
When and where is the 2021 Met Gala
In recent years, the Met Gala has always been held every first Monday in May. This was the case until in 2020 the edition was put on hold due to the pandemic. In 2021, it looks like it can hold up, although it will be until the end of the year.
The Costume Institute has confirmed that this year’s edition will be the next September 13, but the 2022 Met Gala date has also moved forward: May 2, 2022, again returning to the tradition of the first Monday in May.
If we look at the calendar for previous years, the red carpet should start around 7:00 p.m. (local time), while in Europe it is 1:00 a.m. on September 14 (or May 3, 2022).
As also every year, the celebration will take place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, undoubtedly an iconic image of the city. Its main staircase has also become a symbol of the Museum’s Dress Institute festival, although it is expected that there will be some restrictions.
What is the theme of the Met Gala 2021?
The Met Gala is nothing more than a charity gala that serves as the opening for a special exhibition hosted each year by the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The same theme is that which is required in the dress code of the participants.
The 2021 edition will be very special, and not just because it will be the return of the famous gala after its suspension in 2020. It will be the first part of the celebration of American fashion. The second will take place in May 2022.
The September event is called “In America: A Fashion Lexicon” and with it we want to “explore a modern American-style vocabulary” by associating it with themes such as equity, diversity and inclusion.
The 2022 exhibition has as title “In America: A Fashion Anthology” and will explore the relationship between the evolution of American fashion and history.
The first part of the exhibition can be visited from September 18 at the Met, while the second will be available from May 5, 2022. Both exhibitions will close on September 5 of next year.
Who are the hosts of the Met Gala 2021?
Each year, Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue (who is hosting the event), chooses several hosts to help decide how the ceremony will go.
In 2020, the hosts were supposed to be Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Nicolas Ghesquiere, but it looks like these won’t be the chosen ones for 2021.
Designer Tom Ford and Adam Mosseri will be invited to join Anna Wintour, while co-hosts will be actor Timothée Chalamet, singer Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis player Naomi Osaka.
In previous editions, celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, Amal Clooney, Rihanna, Donatella Versace, Gisele Bündchen, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Jennifer Lawrence, Sarah Jessica Parker, Stella McCartney or Julia en had honor Roberts.
Who will attend the 2021 Met Gala?
We don’t know how many attendees will have the 2021 Met Gala, but the capacity will surely be reduced by COVID restrictions. In 2019, it is estimated that there was between 600 and 700 participants.
There is no doubt that among those who will attend the Met Gala there will be faces well known to all of us and from fields as diverse as music, politics, cinema or fashion.
How much does a 2021 Met Gala ticket cost?
We don’t know the price of tickets for this year, but in previous editions they were priced at $ 30,000, around $ 27,000. Tables, on the other hand, can cost $ 275,000, or just over $ 245,000.
Now you need Anna Wintour herself to invite you or approve your attendance.
