Eilish, Chalamet, Gorman and Osaka headline fall Met Gala
NEW YORK: When the Met Gala returns in September, it will feature a heavy-hitting contingent of celebrity co-chairs: actor Timothée Chalamet, musician Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis star Naomi Osaka.
Honorary chairs for the evening will be designer Tom Ford, sponsor Instagram’s Adam Mosseri, and Vogue‘s Anna Wintour.
The museum made the announcement on the traditional day of the Met Gala — the first Monday in May. The September 13 gala will be a more intimate affair, to be followed by a larger one on May 2, 2022. Both will launch a two-part exhibition, a survey of American fashion.
