Usually The Met Gala held in May. This year it got postponed due to COVID-19. Kicking off this evening, 13 September, fashion’s biggest night will be held at its usual location: the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The gala will be in celebration of the Costume Institute’s newest exhibition, “IN AMERICA,” which opens to the public in the Anna Wintour Costume Center on 18 September.
