As for this year’s patriot and historical theme, ET’s Rachel Smith recently spoke with Met curator Andrew Bolton about the importance of the gala and how it is meant to celebrate American fashion.

“It is this montage of American fashion, and young designers. … A lot of the expeditions, about 70 percent, are by young, contemporary designers. I’m hoping to see a lot of young designers dressing their guests in their own way, hopefully,” he told ET.

The 2021 and 2022 Met Galas will both be themed around America. Part Two, taking place on May 2, 2022, is titled In America: An Anthology of Fashion.

According to the press release, the exhibition opens Sept. 18 and will highlight “everything from the luxe ease of Halston’s ’70s glamour to Rodarte’s ethereal edge and Kerby Jean-Raymond’s powerful political vision for Pyer Moss.”
