Vogue confirmed on Monday that singer Billie Eilish, 19, and actor Timothée Chalamet, 25, will co-chair the 2021 Met Gala event in September, along with tennis star Naomi Osaka and poet Amanda Gorman, both 23. Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, fashion designer Tom Ford and Instagram head Adam Mosseri will serve as honorary chairs.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute announced in April that the Met Gala will return this year with a two-part exhibition on American fashion planned for September 2021 and May 2022.
Eilish, Chalamet, Osaka and Gorman will co-chair the Sept. 13 event, a smaller gala heralding the launch of the “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” exhibit on Sept. 18. The dress code for the event will be “American Independence.”
