The theme of this year’s Met Gala is “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”, which will be held in conjunction with a major exhibition celebrating the Costume Institute’s 75th anniversary and exploring a modern vocabulary of American fashion.

In an interview with US Vogue , Andrew Bolton, the Wendy Yu curator at the Costume Institute, said: “I’ve been very impressed with American designers’ response to the social and political climate, especially around issues of body inclusivity and gender fluidity.

This year’s event will be a “more intimate affair,” but there will still be a red carpet where stars and designers can show off their “bold, outré ensembles.”.
