Eilish is currently on the June cover of Vogue magazine as she wore lingerie while showing off her new blonde hair. 

The event will take place on September 13, after being moved from May due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and will be smaller than usual.

The honorary chairs are Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri, and Anna Wintour.

Vogue shared on Monday that the exhibition will have two acts: ‘The first, called In America, will be a small show that takes place this September; part two, a continued look into the glories of our domestic fashion industry, will be unveiled in 2022—with a celebration slated for its storied date of the first Monday in May.’

Dress code: Timothee has said in the past that he likes to choose his own clothing because that is 'fun.' 'I hear about celebrities who have stylists, and that blows my mind,' Chalamet told Time Out in 2018. 'It's certainly not why I act, but I can wear cool clothes from some of the nicest designers in the world. So why am I going to pay someone to figure out what I should be wearing? That's the fun part.' Seen in 2019

The theme is American Independence because there is a ‘newfound sense of freedom: to gather, to travel, and to get utterly dressed to the nines’ after lockdown eases, the magazine state.

‘Though we’ve had our share of awards-show gowns through the pandemic, celebrities posing poolside at their homes don’t quite have the same effect as a proper red carpet. The operatic fashion parade on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is a wondrous thing to behold,’ it was added by the publication. 

Exhibition curator Andrew Bolton will include designs from American fashion icons like Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta, it was shared.

Timothee has not yet even attended the Met Gala.

And he has said in the past that he likes to choose his own clothing because that is ‘fun.’

‘I hear about celebrities who have stylists, and that blows my mind,’ Chalamet told Time Out in 2018.

These days, the Met Gala – originally made famous by the late, great Diana Vreeland – is more known for its glam squad-obsessed celebrities and resulting bathroom selfies than the actual museum exhibits.
