Met Gala's 2021 Co-Chairs Revealed - See the 4 'Gen-Z Superstars' Chosen!

The 2021 Met Gala is shaping up to be a massive event, and now, we know the celeb co-chairs!

Back in early April, the Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, alongside Anna Wintour, Costume Institute booster and Condé Nast chief content officer, announced that there will be two Met Galas to celebrate American fashion.

The “more intimate” Met Gala will happen this year on September 13, dependent on any Coronavirus restrictions in place. A larger Met Gala will return on May 2, 2022, and will coincide with a two-part exhibition that will be available to view for almost a full year.

Met Gala 2021 Reportedly Still Happening, But the Date Has Changed - See the Rumored Hosts!

The 2021 Met Gala is happening this year, according to a new report!

The annual fashionable celebration, which was cancelled last year amid the pandemic, will be returning as usual this year, Page Six reported Thursday (April 8).

However, it will be happening later than usual.

Unlike most years, when the event takes place on the first Monday of May, this year’s event will allegedly be pushed back to September 13 to try and time with a return to relative “normalcy” following the deployment of the COVID-19 vaccine.

It was not going to be on the first Monday of that month due to Labor Day.

“Even Anna Wintour can’t change a federal holiday,” a source told the outlet.

While there are no official confirmations yet, poet Amanda Gorman and CFDA chairman Tom Ford are reportedly being eyed to act as the hosts.

The theme will be a celebration of America and American designers, according to the report.
