Virtual red carpet for The Met Gala 150th anniversary

The first Monday of May arrived but the stairs of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art were vacant. No celebrities with extravagant designs or flashing cameras anywhere to be seen. Instead, a virtual red carpet transforming this fashion event to once again capture attention across the globe.

Despite the cancellation of the gala in March due to COVID-19, the most powerful woman in fashion and president of MET Gala, Anna Wintour headed a movement through social media networks encouraging designers, actors, actresses, singers, models to share their favourite looks from past galas.

Wintour also shared a video through Vogue USA YouTube channel encouraging donations to support those directly affected by Coronavirus such as the Dress Institute which usually see millions of dollars raised through the gala each year.

In addition, singer-songwriter Florence Welch sang “You’ve Got the Love” from home, as she would have done if the gala had been held.

Gala celebrity regular Jared Leto shared his iconic Gucci and decapitatedhead look from 2019, while funny gal Mindy Kaling recreated that same look.
