2020 edition was canceled due to the pandemic, so, this time, the Met Gala has decided to go big and come back with two dates: the first in a few days, September 13, while the second will be, as usual, on the first Monday in May. While the new year still seems too far away, curiosity is rising for the event of this late summer, announced as "more intimate", with a format a bit revised and strongly Gen Z oriented. Starting with the co-chairs who will be singer-songwriter Billie Eilish, actor Timothée Chalamet, tennis player Naomi Osaka, poet Amanda Gorman and will be joined by honorary presidents Anna Wintour, Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri. Even the list of expected guests, suggested by the unofficial Instagram account @_metgala2021, seems to include many young celebrities and influencers such as Charli D'Amelio, Addison Rae or the Olympic athlete Allyson Felix, who will be added to the stars who have already walked the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City such as Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Naomi Campbell and Taylor Swift.

The 2021 dress code is American Independence, a theme that promises a shower of red-white-and-blue outfits that are star-studded, glittery, and sparkling more than the fireworks of the 4th of July. Most likely, the boldest and coolest looks will be inspired by the Met's exhibition that will be divided into two parts titled, respectively, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion and In America: An Anthology of Fashion. Among the designers included in the exhibition are stars and stripes fashion icons such as Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta, but also emerging names such as LaQuan Smith or Prabal Gurung who closed the SS20 show with models in beauty queen style accessorized with a sash on which was written "Who gets to be American?", offering the Met 2021 guests a perfect example to copy. Definitely, there will be some celebrities sporting one of the beautiful 90s Calvin Klein slip dress, a super glamorous seventies creation by Halston, one of the red, white and blue models part of Marc Jacobs spring-summer 2016 collection or one of the iconic ones seen during his iconic show for Perry Ellis in 1993.
