The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala or the Costume Institute Benefit and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit.

Typically held annually on the first Monday in May, the Met Gala returns this year as a smaller, more intimate affair than in years past. The event was canceled last year, and postponed to this September, due to COVID-19.
