The days leading up to the Met Gala are some of the most exciting of the year, as we all anticipate extravagant looks from the most famous people in the world. From Beyoncé to Cardi B, many of our favorites love to go all in at Anna Wintour‘s annual fundraising event, long held in New York City on the first Monday of May, although it was postponed to September this year. As you’ll recall, Wintour announced the 2020 Met Gala was postponed, then canceled altogether, due to coronavirus — so we missed out on all the LEWKS last May.

“Due to the unavoidable and responsible decision by the Metropolitan Museum to close its doors, About Time, and the opening night gala, will not take place on the date scheduled,” Wintour announced initially, in an article that also endorsed Joe Biden for President. In a later statement , Vogue added:

“It’s now official: There will be no Met gala in 2020. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which has been closed since mid March, announced today that the Met gala, often called the party of the year, has been canceled for 2020. In a statement issued this afternoon, the museum said that the gala had been canceled ‘due to the global health crisis.'”

Well, the wait is over, as the Met Gala is all set to take place this Monday, September 13. Amanda Gorman, Naomi Osaka, Billie Eilish, and more are hosting and the official theme is, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion. To celebrate the party of the year returning, we’ve gathered the most memorable Black woman Met Gala moments. Because we… are… life.
