The Met Gala livestream will begin at 10:30pm BST on the night of the Met Gala, and will be hosted by two special guests: actor and recording artist Keke Palmer, and actor, writer and director Ilana Glazer. Together, they will provide unprecedented access to the Met Gala’s famous red carpet, interviewing high-profile guests as they arrive in grand style. (Expect a double dose of humour and irreverence along the way.) To watch the official livestream, be sure to check back to this article on the night.
The theme for this year’s Met Gala is a celebration of American fashion, so look out for plenty of star-spangled style throughout the evening. “American Independence” is listed as the official dress code, and this can mean anything from splashy, red-white-and-blue looks, to more discreet choices that are made here in the US. No matter the interpretation, celebrities are bound to make major statements with their outfits — the Met Gala has a history of creating memorable fashion looks, after all.
This year’s notable co-chairs, meanwhile, are the Gen Z superstars Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka, and Amanda Gorman — so expect to see them make cameos on the carpet and livestream, too. Designer Tom Ford, Instagram’s Adam Mosseri, and Anna Wintour will also serve as the honorary chairs.
