The Met Gala is actually happening this year

As much fun as the #MetGalaChallenge was last year, it looks like this year’s highest party of the year in NYC will be held in person.

After being replaced last May by a virtual iteration of events, New York Post reports that the party at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is returning to the IRL for 2021. The only trap? It will not take place on the first Monday in May.

This year’s Met Gala is scheduled for September 13 (it can’t be held on the first Monday in September because it’s, you know, Labor Day.) Although not much is known about the event, the Post reports that Tom Ford and the inauguration star who breaks through Amanda Gorman watched as hosts.

The gala black tie, often referred to as the “Fashion Oscars”, raises funds each year for the Matt Costume Institute. Due to the pandemic, last year’s ceremony, which was related to the main exhibition About Time, was canceled, while the museum was temporarily closed to visitors.

With at least four extra months, you’ll have a little more time to work on attracting calls.
