Made in the USA
The Met Gala usually takes place on the first Monday in May. However, due to the pandemic, it takes place on September 13, 2021. We have all been on the edge of our seats waiting for the theme. This week they announced their theme: In American. In the wake of a troublous American, the Met turns their attention to American-based fashion. This 2-part exploration will talk about all things made in the USA and will span over 3 centuries of fashion. The first part will open with designers we all know like Ralph, Donna Karena, and Calvin Klein. With such a straightforward theme, the thought of how celebrities and their stylist will interpret this is now the question. Hopefully, we don’t just see a lot of Tom Ford Suits. (Vogue)
