This is the first time that Streep attends the party, as does Miranda, of Puerto Rican origin, who also opens at the annual meeting, which the Metropolitan Museum of New York (Met), which celebrates its 150th anniversary, uses to finance good part of the activities of its Institute of the Suit.
The French designer Nicolas Ghesquiere, creative director of the Louis Vuitton firm, is the fourth host of the event, which will be held on May 4, 2020 and that is sponsored by that Parisian fashion house, a statement from Met.
The fifth hostess is the perennial Wintour, who has been dealing with this event since 1999.
While in the past few years the guests of the Met Gala should be inspired by concepts such as punk, Catholicism or the camp, the next edition of the cultural institution indicates that the theme of the event will be "the last" (the duration).
Together with the celebration of the gala, which brings together a long list of familiar faces, the Met organizes, like every year, a great exhibition of costumes.
"Using the concept 'the last' of the philosopher Henri Bergson - that time flows, accumulates and is indivisible -, the exhibition will explore how clothing generates timeless associations that merge the past, present and future," explains the cultural institution in the text.
In total, 160 women's suits dating from 1870 will be deployed, when the Metropolitan Museum of New York was founded, until today, while British writer Virginia Woolf will serve as a “ghost narrator” through passages from some of her famous novels
Although Wintour generally flees the black color, the exhibition, organized in chronological order, will wear black garments to explain the "progressive calendar of modernity" and to demonstrate the "fast pace" of fashion.
Since Wintour took over its organization 20 years ago, the event has been gaining importance with each edition, and in 2019 it managed to raise 15 million dollars.
