All you fashionistas, grab your blue jeans and white tees, because the Met Gala is focusing on its American roots with its next theme.
We couldn't be more thrilled because the Met Gala, a yearly fundraiser celebrating the Met Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibit, will be returning after its cancellation last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. And we've been missing this lavish exhibit of dramatic and sometimes ridiculous haute couture.
Centered on the theme, "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," the Costume Institute will be doing a two-part exhibition taking place this September and next May.
The announcement was made on Instagram, where the Met wrote, "Opening on September 18, 'In America: A Lexicon of Fashion'—the first in a two-part survey of American fashion—will explore a modern vocabulary of American style emphasizing the expressive qualities of dress and deeper associations with issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion."
