The MET Gala Countdown Has Begun
Laura Lee - April 8, 2019

Let the 2019 Met Gala countdown commence! Fashion fans are eagerly waiting for this year’s Met Gala. This event is literally so big, it’s called the Oscars of the fashion world. But are you a little behind on pop culture and need a refresher? No worries, let’s review, shall we?

 

So what is the Met Gala you ask? It’s actually the Costume Institute Gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and is the biggest fashion fundraiser of the year. The event was first founded by Eleanor Lambert and began in 1948. It began as a way to encourage New York’s elite to donate. Nowadays, the biggest faces of the creative industry show up- from art, fashion, music, and film. They all come together and raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute. Each Gala was a theme of an exhibit. Previous themes included Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination and Manus x Machine, Punk: Chaos to Couture. This year’s exhibition theme is Camp: Notes On Fashion. The Gala takes place on the first Monday of May, so May 6, 2019.

 

US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has chaired the event since 1995. Wintour enlists other major public figures as her co-chairs; past hosts have included Rihanna, Amal Clooney, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Beyoncé. The 2019 Met Gala is the 71st anniversary and will be co-chaired by Lady Gaga, Serena Williams, Harry Styles, and Alessandro Michele.

Where does the Met Gala take place? It always takes place in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The night kicks off with the red carpet, cocktail hour, and time to explore the new exhibit. Then guests sit for dinner and the evening’s performances. It is expected that Lady Gaga and Harry Styles will be this year’s entertainment.

 

What is the 2019 theme? Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute, has decided on the theme Camp: Notes on Fashion which features 200 art pieces. Each object, from fine art to fashion, traces the origins from the 17th century to present day. Specifically taking inspiration from the court of Versailles. Anna Wintour said at a press conference, “Basically, we go from sun kings to drag queens.” Gucci creative direction Alessandro Michele said, “this fantastic exhibition…[is] working to the expression of human nature… Camp is a beautiful world.”

 

What will the guests be wearing? That’s anyone’s guess! But onlookers surely won’t be disappointed by this year’s amazing, bold and quirky costumes.

 

Just another reason to look forward to spring!
