The only news bigger than the return of the Met Gala this year is that Rihanna will be hosting the official after party. The Bad Gal took to social media on Wednesday to share with her 107 million followers that she'll be throwing a private Annual Gala after party for fashion's biggest night. In true Riri form, she let it be known that her event will be the hottest ticket in town, captioning the chic virtual invitation, "If you planning a MET Ball after party..............don't".
This year's Gala marks the return of fashion's biggest night, after having been postponed last year due to COVID-19. Usually held on the first Monday in May, this year's Ball will take place on September 13th, and will be much smaller and more intimate than previous years. According the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this year's theme "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," will honor the 75th anniversary of the museum's Costume Institute and "explore a modern vocabulary of American fashion."
But what fans really want to know is if the Fenty fashion mogul will be attending the main event and gracing the world with her legendary style. No word on if RiRi will make an appearance at the big show, but there are other big names to look out for at this year's affair. Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, and Naomi Osaka will cochair the ceremony, while Tom Ford, Anna Wintour and Adam Mosseri will serve as the honorary chairs.
You never know who could show up for fashion's most monumental evening.
