This year, that lands on May 3, 2021.
Is the Met Gala taking place in 2021?
It’s yet to be announced whether the Met Gala will take place this year.
It didn’t take place in 2020 due to COVID-19, but it’s unclear whether this will be the case again in 2021.
In a statement on Vogue.com, the magazine’s Editor-in-chief and Condé Nast’s global content advisor Anna Wintour said: ‘Due to the unavoidable and responsible decision by the Metropolitan Museum to close its doors, About Time, and the opening night gala, will not take place on the date scheduled.’
What’s the theme of the Met Gala in 2021?
The theme of the 2021 Met Gala has yet to be announced.
As last year’s event was unfortunately cancelled, it could be the case that Vogue returns to the About Time theme that never came to light last year this time around instead.
