The Met Gala 2020 has been officially postponed in light of the coronavirus outbreak.
According to Vogue, Anna Wintour, who helms the chairmanship at the Costume Institute since the ‘90s, announced the decision on March 16. “Due to the unavoidable and responsible decision by the Metropolitan Museum to close its doors, About Time, and the opening night gala will be postponed to a later date,” the editor wrote in a heartfelt letter.
News of the postponement comes after the Met’s decision to close its doors until April 4. “In deference to this guidance, all programs and events through May 15 will be canceled or postponed," Vogue also reported, which includes the Met Gala.
The first Monday in May, also known as #MetGalaMonday will never be the same. There hasn’t been an official postponement date as of yet, so we’ll be standing by along with our favorite celebrities to see how this all turns out.
