Couturiers from all over the world push their boundaries to create some of the most jaw-dropping pieces for the celebs they team with. With New York city combating COVID-19, Vogue which organizes the gala will be looking back at the rich history of the Met.
“It would be impossible to recreate the gala on Monday evening, though I have loved hearing how so many are marking the occasion in their own ways,” says Anna Wintour, Vogue’s editor in chief about A Moment With the Met “So instead, I asked a few friends to join me for a simple moment—one that I hope will bring us all a bit of joy.”
However, the day will not just be marked by looking at the history of the ball. There are other events lined up too.
