According to Vogue, Timmy is set to co-chair the Met Gala honouring American fashion in September.
The Met Gala’s return after a year’s hiatus is cause for celebration. Part one of the Costume Institute’s exploration of the nation’s sartorial identity, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” opens on September 18th and promises to be a deep dive into American ingenuity. Everything from the luxe ease of Halston’s ’70s glamour to Rodarte’s ethereal edge and Kerby Jean-Raymond’s powerful political vision for Pyer Moss will feature within the forthcoming exhibition. Similarly, the night’s hosts also represent a cross-section of homegrown talent. Gen-Z superstars Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka, and Amanda Gorman will serve as co-chairs, while Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri, and Anna Wintour comprise the evening’s honorary chairs.
They may be young, but each of the night’s co-hosts has made their mark on fashion. After breaking the leading man mold with his performance in Call Me By Your Name, Chalamet has become the most influential man in fashion. His unexpected mix of streetwear, lack of a stylist, and embrace of avant grade labels setting him apart from his peers.
