This year’s “Met Gala” concert plays the youth and diversity card, by selecting four co-chairs under the age of 30: singer Billie Eilish, actor Timote Chalameh, poet Amanda Gorman and professional tennis player Naomi Osaka.
The party is usually held in early May, but has been postponed to September 13th, in the hope that by that date most health restrictions will be lifted. The concert was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Honorary co-chairs this year will be Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue who made the party a global event, designer Tom Ford and director of the party’s Instagram network, Adam Mossere.
None of the four presidents has ever participated in the party organized to fund the “Custom Institute” of the “Metropolitan Museum” dedicated to fashion, which has a budget independent of the museum.
However, the French-American Timote Chalamet (25 years) is accustomed to red carpets, and he makes a fuss with his outfits, especially a suit designed by Alexander McQueen printed with floral patterns he wore in October 2018 in London, or a shiny shoulder strap from Louis Vuitton during the Golden Globe Awards The Globe »2019 in Los Angeles.
As for the African American poet Amanda Gorman (23 years old), she drew attention during the inauguration of US President Joe Biden in January 2021, when she recited her poem (The Hill We Climb) wearing a yellow “Prada” coat. In the Super Bowl finals at the beginning of February, she recited a poem wearing a blue, wavy Moschino coat.
Billie Eilish (19 years old) used to wear baggy clothes that often consist of a large shirt and shorts, even when she sings at prom.
Japan’s Naomi Osaka, 23, ranked second in the world among professional tennis players, stormed the fashion world, officially becoming the ambassador of Louis Vuitton. The young woman from a Japanese mother and father from Haiti has also collaborated in the marketing of a range of bags and a range of swimwear.
