Fashion’s biggest night out returns in September after two years
A spokesperson for The Met confirmed the requirement to PEOPLE そして、言いました: "現在, all attendees at The Met Gala on 13 September must provide proof of full 予防接種 and will also be expected to wear masks indoors except when eating or drinking. We will update these guidelines as needed.”
The theme for this year’s Met Gala is “In America: ファッションの用語集」. The event will be held alongside a major two-part exhibition at the museum that will “celebrate The Costume Institute’s 75th anniversary and explore a modern vocabulary of American fashion”.
Andrew Bolton, the Wendy Yu curator in charge of the Costume Institute, 言った USヴォーグ: “I’ve been really impressed by American designers’ responses to the social and political climate, particularly around issues of body inclusivity and gender fluidity, and I’m just finding their work very, very self-reflective.”
USヴォーグ confirmed in May that fashion’s biggest night out will be hosted by Timothée Chalamet, ビリー・アイリッシュ, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka, with Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri and Anna Wintour serving as honorary chairs.
The magazine also said this year’s event would be a “more intimate affair”, but will still feature a red carpet for stars and designers to show off their “bold, outré ensembles”.
The vaccine requirement for The Met Gala comes as the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) announced the same requirement for all guests, staff members and individuals attending New York Fashion Week events in September.
This is in line with a city-wide mandate announced by New York City mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday, who said the city will require proof of vaccination to enter almost all indoor venues such as restaurants, gyms and entertainment venues.
