1. The Theme of Met Gala 2020 Has Finally Been Announced

The Met Museum is about to celebrate a huge milestone. For its 150th anniversary, the Met Museum will put up "a series of exhibitions, many of which will put the spotlight on masterworks in its collections, as well as new acquisitions made as part of the 2020 Collections Initiative," Vogue writes. Along with their retrospective look in history, "the Costume Institute’s spring exhibition will showcase a century-and-a-half of fashion history culled from its archive and presented along a 'disruptive' timeline." Hence, this year's Met Gala theme was revealed to play with time. 

Andrew Bolton, Wendy Yu Curator in Charge of the Costume Institute, announces the theme: "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which is "a reimagining of fashion history that’s fragmented, discontinuous, and heterogeneous." The gala will be co-chaired by Nicolas Ghesquière, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, and of course, Anna Wintour.

However, this does not mean that she'll be ridding her closet off her already-existing fur outfits and will still continue to re-wear them. Time writes that the "decision pleased animal rights activists, who have sometimes criticized the monarch for the fur pieces in her collection of designer clothes."

Zac further explained to WWD, "“There was a board vote. We had to make the call. My partners and I tried everything possible within our means to find solutions to keep it going. I have been trying to find the right strategic partners at this tough time in retail and in the industry. The clock ran out."
