The Met Ball is supposed to be fashion’s biggest night. But will a tabloid sensation steal the headlines?
Page Six has learned that Jennifer Lopez is planning to attend — meaning the biggest question for the next few weeks will be whether she and rekindled flame Ben Affleck will make their first red carpet appearance together at the fashionable bash in September.
Pop culture’s collective eyeballs have been glued to the pair since they got back together in May after 17 years. But they’ve yet to make an appearance as an “official” couple.
Lopez is a regular at Vogue’s glamorous gala. She first attended in 2004, when she was dressed by Dolce and Gabbana. Since then she has rarely skipped the fête, attending 2006-2008, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017-2019.
The event, also known as the “Fashion Oscars,” is normally held in May but was pushed back this year in hopes that things would get more “normal.” While it will reportedly be a smaller and more intimate affair this year due to Covid-19, a glittery guest list is starting to come together.
We hear that those making the cut include Anna Wintour favorite Rihanna, whose looks from past galas — like a yellow gown by Guo Pei — have become iconic; and actress Lupita Nyong’o, who has appeared on multiple Vogue covers.
The source tells us model Emily Ratajkowski (who announced her pregnancy with a Vogue digital cover) and hit “Havana” singer Camila Cabello have also made the envied list.
This year’s gala will be taking safety precautions. A spokesperson for the Met told The Daily Beast Tuesday, “Currently, all attendees at The Met Gala on September 13 must provide proof of full vaccination and will also be expected to wear masks indoors except when eating or drinking. We will update these guidelines as needed.”
We’re told that the invite-only event — with solo tickets reportedly costing $30,000 and tables going for $275,000 — has already sold out.
Page Six previously exclusively reported that the Gala was returning, would have an American theme and be hosted by poet Amanda Gorman and CFDA head Tom Ford.
We also broke the exclusive news that Timothée Chalamet would co-host, while musician Billie Eilish and tennis star Naomi Osaka will also join as co-chairs.
Chief External Relations Officer for The Costume Institute tells us, “We do not comment on the guest list in advance of the Gala.”
