The 2020 Met Gala will be held on May 4, and will be the 150th anniversary of it was confirmed that the co-chairs for this year would include its preeminent host Anna Wintour, Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda, Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director Nicolas Ghesquiere, Vuitton brand ambassador Emma Stone as well as Meryl Streep – who will be attending the gala for the very first time.
The official title of theme is: “About Time: Fashion and Duration.”
The New York Times is describing the theme as “inspired in part by the novels of Virginia Woolf and the theories of the early-20th-century French philosopher Henri Bergson, whose admittedly somewhat obscure but also important musings on time posited it as a constantly mutating stream rather than a series of discrete moments.”
The show is set to open on May 7.
