The theme of this year's Met Gala is American fashion. And yes, you can stream the stylish soiree online. Here's how.
After last year's fashion spectacular was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Met Gala has officially returned to New York City.

Hosted, as always, by longtime Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour, this year's stylish soiree is certain to feature an array of fabulous looks served by celebrity guests — who've ranged in the past from Rihanna to assorted Kardashians.

Per tradition, the red-carpet extravaganza will raise awareness and funds for the latest exhibit curated by the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute.

The last Met Gala theme, 2019's "Camp: Notes on Fashion," saw the posh party's esteemed guests model a slew of cheesy, over-the-top fashion don'ts created by the world's top designers.


At face value, this week's style prompt is slightly more serious — though, by design, there's always ample room for interpretation. Here's a breakdown of what to expect at Monday's runway show.
