Met Gala 2021: after two years of absence, New York has found its ultra-mundane meeting


Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Timothée Chalamet ... The world stars flocked to the heart of Manhattan on Monday evening for the Metropoli gala

Four hundred actors, actresses, musicians, models, sportsmen or stars of social networks hurried Monday evening, in increasingly extravagant outfits, at the gala of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met), the essential ultra-social meeting of the all-New York, after two and a half years of absence due to the pandemic.

Almost no one was masked, but to strut the cream-colored carpet, to show up at one of the most popular parties on the planet, you still had to be vaccinated or test negative.

And pay $ 35,000 for the entrance fee.

Among the most notable stars, reality star Kim Kardashian arrived fully covered in black, face included, in an outfit that looked enigmatic and chilling.

The Met Gala is a charity event held annually for the benefit of the Costume Institute, a museum entity dedicated to fashion, which has its own budget and is financially independent from the Met.

Created in 1948, the gala was for a long time an event reserved for the very high and very wealthy New York society, the main source of patronage for the Met.

It gradually opened up from the 1970s, before transforming itself after the arrival at its head of the high priestess of fashion and editor-in-chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour, in 1995.

She propelled it into the galaxy of “people” events, adapted to the era of social networks and the democratization of fashion, to the point where it is sometimes compared to the Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles.

The event also offers the opportunity to assert one's gender identity or political views.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, figure of the left wing of the Democratic Party, displayed "Tax the Rich", a slogan very "class struggle" in the middle of the fortunes of Manhattan.

The 2020 edition of the gala had been canceled as New York was suffocated by the coronavirus epidemic.

That of this year, which is usually held on the first Monday in May, has been postponed to this Monday evening, before a 2022 edition scheduled for the beginning of May.

Maybe with some 1,200 guests, like before the pandemic.
