One of the biggest nights in fashion, The Met Gala has been postponed due to the coronavirus. 

This year’s theme for the Gala was “About Time: Fashion and Duration.” It follows the previous theme, “150 years of women’s fashion.” The Gala is where fan-favorite artists and movie stars come together dressed in impeccable ensembles matching the theme of the night. 

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention stated that during this outbreak, there should not be gatherings of more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks. Many people have speculated that the Met Gala would be canceled due to the museum stating that they will be temporarily closing their doors.   

The Met Gala was scheduled to take place on May 4th in New York City. There is no update as to when the Met Gala will take place.
