At nineteen years old, Billie Eilish will be the youngest ever presenter of the MET Gala. The singer will present the annual benefit gala for the fashion department of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York with, among others, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis star Naomi Osaka, Page Six reports Monday.
Due to the corona crisis , the organizers moved the MET Gala from May to September 13. The event will then be smaller than previous editions. The subsequent edition will take place on May 2, 2022.
Two fashion exhibitions will start around the two dates and will be on display in the museum for a while. The first exhibition, America: A Lexicon of Fashion , opens on September 18 and marks the 75th anniversary of the museum’s costume institute.
The second exhibition is called America: An Anthology and can be seen from May 5, 2022. American fashion in collaboration with film directors is central to this. Both exhibitions are open until September 5, 2022.
Other hosts of the MET Gala in September include fashion designer and filmmaker Tom Ford and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
