Met Gala Postponed Indefinitely.That’s right. The most prominent fashion event on the planet has been postponed indefinitely.
The MET Gala is the oscar equivalent of the fashion industry.
Every year we have this fundraising met in favour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City.
However, this year’s gala is on edge, and here is why.
MET Gala Getting Postponed
As we know, The Met Gala happens on May 4, 2020.
But the news is that the most glamourous event of the year is facing suspension.
We have Anna Wintour as the one co-chai this year along with Nicolas Ghesquiere and Emma Stone.
“Due to 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.”
Anna Wintour makes he statement to Vogue on March 16, 2020.
Coronavirus Terror Calls Off The MET Gala (Met Gala Postponed Indefinitely)
CDC introduces the new guidelines on public gatherings in the United States.
According to the new rules, no gathering of people consisting of 50 or more should take place.
In these times of a global pandemic spreading, adhering by the new guideline by CDC is our best option.
Therefore, the rules by CDC are going to be in action for the next eight weeks.
We have a representative for the Costume Institute making a statement regarding the matter.
“In deference to this guidance, all programs and events through May 15 will be cancelled or postponed”.
The news regarding The Met Gala comes a few days after the Metropolitan Museum closes down for the public.
The Last Time MET Gala Was Postponed
As you know, the global pandemic is unleashing horror like no other.
Indeed, it is the spread of Coronavirus on a global level that CDC introduces new guidelines for people.
However, it is not the first time.
During 2002, The Met Gala faces turbulence because of the 9/11 attacks in the previous year.
Along with The Met Gala, we have Chanel and Versace cancelling their shows.
Meanwhile, Gucci and Armani have entirely shut down factories internationally.
However, it is not only the high-profile industries getting affected. Regular households, schools, and entertainment avenues and places of public gatherings are all shutting down.
