Met Gala 2021: Theme And Date
Ahead of the Met Gala big bash, our job is to let people know who all are co-charing the exciting, glitzy event. The postponed 2021 Met gala will be held on September 13 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The theme has been kept simple, and it is American fashion. It can include anything and everything coming under its ambit. So this means literally anything the 90s or 2000s or even 2010s and even gen-zer fashion is part of the event. Because the pressure has been laid off of celebs to dress in a high0brow way, they can literally come as they liked.
The criticism that this definition face is mostly by Wendy Yu Curator, who is in charge of the Costume Institute. She feels American fashion has overgone a tremendous change in the past couple of years. Especially after the reemergence of the Black Lives Matter movement. So according to her, it is a “crime” to ask people to dress up in an “American fashion” way, whatever it means. She feels that there has been a “renaissance” in the Ameican identity and sub-identities and to expect people to dress in an age-old way that neither confirmed with the American values is going to be harmful to one ad all.
The exhibit is divided into two parts and is named, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” and the second one is named, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.”
