Vogue Hosts a Virtual Met Gala Celebration

The Met Gala was originally scheduled for May 4 so Vogue decided to host a YouTube event instead.

Every year, the Met Gala gives us gorgeous looks and brings out every celebrity’s creativity. Unfortunately, the in-person event had to be canceled, but Vogue said the show must go on. Vogue will host a YouTube event titled A Moment With the Met in which they will look back on previous Met Galas. They will also be revealing new videos featuring Cardi B, Naomi Campbell, Liv Tyler, Stella McCartney, and Liza Koshy.

The event will also feature a performance by Florence + the Machine and a DJ set by designer Virgil Abloh. Florence + the Machine released a new track last month titled “Light of Love” in aid of the Intensive Care Society, who provide care and support to frontline NHS workers.

Vogue will also be making donations to the Costume Institute, which is usually benefitted by the Met Gala, and the “A Common Thread” initiative, which raises both awareness and needed funds for those in the American fashion community who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It would be impossible to recreate the gala on Monday evening, though I have loved hearing how so many are marking the occasion in their own ways,” Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour said in a statement, “So instead, I asked a few friends to join me for a simple moment — one that I hope will bring us all a bit of joy.”

Tune into A Moment With the Met on Vogue’s YouTube channel on May 4 at 6 p.m. EST.
