Update: On April 12, Vogue announced the theme for the 2021 and the 2022 Costume Insitute exhibitions, both of which will be centered around American fashion. Read on for more details. This story was originally published on April 9, 2021. It’s been just over a year since it was first reported that the 2020 Met Gala would be postponed due to the pandemic. Two months later, Vogue made the official announcement that fashion’s biggest night would be canceled completely. Though the About Time: Fashion and Duration exhibition opened later in the year at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, no pink carpet was rolled out to celebrate it, nor did Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Zendaya, or any of the other stars who frequent the Met Gala, show up in fashion fit for the occasion. According to Page Six, though, the 2021 soirée won’t meet the same fate. On Thursday, the publication reported that this year’s Met Gala will take place, and no, it won’t exist only on Instagram like this year’s award shows. That said, it won’t be on the first Monday in May as we’ve grown to expect, either. Instead, the benefit, which raises money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute and is known in the industry as the “Oscars of Fashion,” will take place during New York Fashion Week in September. Ahead, everything we know (so far) about the 2021 Met Gala. When will the 2021 Met Gala take place? The gala will take place on September 13, 2021. According to Page Six, the date was changed in the hopes that, with the current vaccine rollout, it will be safe to gather by then. Whether or not that will turn out to be true is yet to be determined. Furthermore, the date apparently could not be held on the first Monday in September due to the fact that it’s Labor Day, and national holidays trump even Vogue’s Anna Wintour. Who will host the 2021 Met Gala? According to Page Six sources, Vogue is considering Inauguration Day poet and the magazine’s May cover star Amanda Gorman for its 2021 Met Gala host. Tom Ford, the CFDA chairman and designer, is said to be joining her. Of course, Wintour will also be a host. What will the 2021 Met Gala theme be? According to Vogue, the 2021 Costume Institute exhibit will combine with the one for 2022, thus creating a two-part fashion display. The theme for the 24-month show? American fashion. Opening on September 18, 2021, the first half of the exhibition, titled “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” will be held in Anna Wintour’s Costume Center and focus on fashion’s ability to tell stories through time. According to Andrew Bolton, Costume Institute’s curator, the Costume Center will be transformed into an “imaginary house” for the exhibit, which will run until September 5, 2022. The second half of the show, which opens on May 5, 2022, will also run until September 5, though it will be housed in the American Wing’s period rooms. Titled “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” this display will “address the subject of inclusivity,” with the primary question being, “Who gets to be American?” The show will discuss names that have and have not been left out of this group in the past, and explore why. According to the announcement, the brands on display will include Pyer Moss, LaQuan Smith, Oscar de la Renta, Prabal Gurung, Andre Walker, and Ralph Lauren, among others. Prior to 2020, Met Gala themes included Camp: Notes on Fashion, which saw Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Janelle Monáe, and Ezra Miller, among others, don fashion at its most over-the-top, in 2019; Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination in 2018, which was unofficially won by Rihanna, when she showed up wearing a Pope costume by Maison Margiela; and Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between in 2017, which featured co-host Katy Perry in custom Maison Martin Margiela, Lily Collins in Giambattista Valli, and Zoë Kravitz in Oscar de la Renta.

After a stunning performance at the 2021 presidential inauguration, there was no doubt in our minds that Amanda Gorman’s impact would continue to skyrocket. Since that historic day, Gorman covered Time’s Black Renaissance issue and was named one of People’s Women Changing the World. Now, the Harvard graduate can add a historic magazine moment to her growing list of accolades as the first poet to ever grace the cover of Vogue. Gorman’s stunning spread, shot by Annie Leibovitz, features the writer and activist in a series of garments designed by Virgil Abloh. Makeup artist Raisa Flowers perfected Gorman’s fresh, glowy skin look, and celebrity stylist Lacy Redway worked Gorman’s hair into shoulder-length Senegalese twists, which she pinned into a half-up style. Of course, the spread wasn’t complete without one of Gorman’s signature statement hairpieces. View this post on Instagram A post shared by LACY REDWAY 👸🏾 🧠 💇🏽♀️✨♍️🗣💋💪🏾 (@lacyredway) Gorman celebrated the new cover on Instagram and thanked her Vogue glam team — including her mom, who assisted Redway behind the scenes. “Special thanks to my mom who helped with hair on-set,” she said in her caption. The special moment was one of Gorman’s many meaningful choices for the shoot, including a gown honoring African heritage. It also marks another beautiful chapter in Gorman’s story, which radiates Black girl magic and representation. “What a time to be a Black girl,” activist Jamira Burley remarked in a comment. We couldn’t agree more. Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?

With Keeping Up With the Kardashians coming to an end, we thought it would be a great time to take look back at the first famous family of reality TV's fashion has evolved over the years. While this is definitely the end of an era for most, it does make sense that the Kardashians are taking a step back as Kim is going to law school, Kourtney is busy with her website Poosh, Khloé is focusing on her denim line Good American, Kylie is creating a beauty empire, and Kendall is dominating the runways. Keep reading and keep up (that's the last time I'll use that pun, I promise) with the Kardashians' style ahead.
Here's the release info.
