Met Gala Tonight

Tonight is the annual benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's fabrics and textile wing, the Costume Institute, an event colloquially referred to as the Met Gala. Vogue's livestream of the red carpet will begin at 6 pm ET (watch here).


The Met Gala was first launched in the 1940s and has since become one of the biggest nights in fashion. Each year's theme is named after the Costume Institute's corresponding spring collection, in this case, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.” The dress code for tonight's event—meant to inspire guests' attire—is "The Garden of Time," named after a 1962 short story by JG Ballard. The plot surrounds a wealthy count and countess who pluck magical time-slowing flowers to delay a working-class mob from storming their estate.


This year, Vogue's editor-in-chief Anna Wintour—who has organized the gala since the 1990s—is joined by four co-chairs: Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Lopez, and Zendaya. An estimated 400 or more of the most prominent people across pop culture and entertainment are expected to attend.
