Next year's Met Gala theme revealed - 'About Time: Fashion and Duration'

The next Met Gala will invite style stars and fashion insiders alike to travel through time. The Costume Institute has announced "About Time: Fashion and Duration" as the theme for its next exhibit, which will also celebrate the Metropolitan Museum of Art's 150th anniversary. Louis Vuitton will host the Gala, with Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière serving as cochair alongside Emma Stone, Meryl Streep, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and, of course, Anna Wintour.

Mark Bolton, it's lead curator said, the exhibition will cover 150 years of fashion, and apparently take a "nuanced and open-ended" approach. "It's a reimagining of fashion history that’s fragmented, discontinuous, and heterogeneous."
The 2020 Met Gala will take place on May 4, and the exhibit will be open to the public from May 7 to Sept. 7, 2020. It will mark both Meryl and Lin-Manuel's first time attending, but they'll be in good company with Emma, who has attended six times. Ahead of the highly anticipated event, look back at Emma's previous Met Gala appearances.
