The Met Gala Will Make a Triumphant Return This Fall, and Star Poet Amanda Gorman Could Be Its Host | Artnet News

The Met Gala is back, baby!

The starry event, which was cancelled last year because of you-know-what, will return in 2021 as a live event, according to Page Six.

Although the soirée usually takes place on the first Monday in May, this year’s party will happen on September 13, Labor Day, giving party planners, makeup specialists, dress designers, and attendees a little more time to plan.

Hopefully by that time, wide-spread vaccinations will mean a party with air-kissing, even if it’s from six feet apart.

Although the museum has yet to announce a theme or hosts for the gala, Page Six’s sources say US poet laureate and cover star Amanda Gorman could team up with fashion icon Tom Ford to oversee the event.

The 23-year-old Gorman, of course, has been getting loads of attention since she wore a canary yellow coat and red headband-cum-tiara at President Joe Biden’s inauguration, where she recited a widely adored poem.

“One of the members of her team recently sent out a request that companies stop sending her flowers,” Doreen St. Felix noted in her  profile of the rising star. “The unending deliveries had filled Gorman’s apartment, possibly triggering an allergic reaction severe enough to warrant a trip to urgent care.”

The poet and activist also graced the cover of  magazine, shot by photographer Awol Erizku.

“We’re living in an important moment in Black art because we’re living in an important moment in Black life,” Gorman told former First Lady Michelle Obama in an interview.

As for themes? Well, a Gorman-Ford one-two punch suggests that America may well be the focus of the event, especially as the museum continues its (delayed) celebration of its own 150th anniversary.
