The Met Gala is right around the corner – and so is the evening’s eye-catching fashion.
This year, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Vogue have partnered to bring the 2021 Met Gala to fans’ homes with a live stream.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the star-studded night:
Who is hosting?
The Met Gala itself will be hosted by Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, Naomi Osaka, Timothée Chalamet, Tom Ford and Anna Wintour. Meanwhile, Monday’s live stream will be hosted by actress Keke Palmer and director Ilana Glazer, according to People magazine.
What time will it start?
The live stream will take place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Sept. 13 beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET.
The live stream will provide “unprecedented access” to the gala, Vogue revealed to the outlet.
The hosts will interview VIP guests during their red carpet entrance to the event. Viewers can tune in on vogue.com or on the brand’s Twitter account.
