The return of the fashion party

The biggest night in fashion, the famous Met Gala, will finally kick off next Monday, September 13, after a year and a half of hibernation. It will be then when the imposing staircase of the Metropolitan Museum of New York is filled with photographers and celebrities dressed in their best clothes according, of course, to the dress code imposed by Anna Wintour.

In this edition the concept that governs the wardrobe is “The independence of the United States”, that is, American fashion. An abstract term that offers infinite possibilities; from eccentric outfits with the colors of the flag, to costumes made in the same country.

This year, the list of the guests to the Met gala, rigorously chosen by Wintour, will be more concise than usual due to the impact of the pandemic – an imposition that supposes a cut of around 200 people.

For the moment, the great hosts of the exclusive party have been announced: actor Timothée Chalamet (25), singer Billie Eilish (19), poet Amanda Gorman (23) and the great promise of tennis, Naomi Osaka (23 ).

Those chosen by Wintour have a common denominator: they are part of a generation of young people with stars willing to break canons and barriers. To these names are added another three honorifics: the designer Tom Ford, the director of Instagram Adam Mosseri and Anna Wintour.

The broadcast of the gala will begin at 5:30 pm in the afternoon New York (11:30 pm peninsular time) and will be conducted by the actress and singer Keke Palmer and the comedian, screenwriter and director Ilana Glazer. On the red carpet they will interview and discuss the outfits of celebrities because, after all, the history of the Met Gala, in terms of fashion, has always been full of memorable creations.

In 1974, Cher attended the Met’s exhibition on “Glamorous Romantic Design” by one of its head designers, Bob Mackie. The public was impressed with the artist’s wardrobe, a transparent dress with glitter and plumage that was baptized in the history of fashion as the first “naked dress”.

In 1995, Lady Di appeared at the ceremony in a blue slip dress, a revolutionary outfit at that time – and more so for royalty – since it was relegated to being at home.

Rihanna is undoubtedly the queen of all editions. One of his most memorable outfits was achieved with an impressive Maison Margiela robe and a miter that emulated that of the Pope.
