Meryl Streep has been named alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda and Emma Stone as a chair of the 2020 Met Gala – and will attend the star-studded bash for the first time ever.
The three-time Oscar-winner has surprisingly by no means attended the fashion event, which subsequent 12 months will rejoice New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 150th anniversary, and can have a theme of ‘About Time: Fashion and Duration’.
Streep will accomplish that alongside Miranda, Stone, Louis Vuitton artistic director Nicolas Ghesquiere of Louis Vuitton, and Vogue U.S. editor Anna Wintour, who Streep famously performed a fictionalized model of in 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada.
Past stars to have chaired the gala embody Harry Styles, Rihanna, Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman.
Explaining this 12 months’s theme, Andrew Bolton, the head of the museum’s Costume Institute advised Vogue its inspiration got here from Virginia Woolf’s time-traveling novel Orlando and a 1992 Sally Potter movie adaptation.
The gala will likely be held on May 4th, with the About Time: Fashion and Duration show operating from May seventh till September seventh, 2020.
