Met Gala Ain't Playing As They Require Guest To Be Vaxxed And Masked
Updated: Aug 5
Let’s suit up for another elegant night with decked out face masks. Today’s hottest celebrities at this year's Met Gala on September 13 will need to wear face coverings and prove they've been vaccinated.
"Currently, all attendees at The Met Gala...must provide proof of full vaccination and will also be expected to wear masks indoors except when eating or drinking,", according to a New York Metropolitan Museum of Art spokesperson, who also added guidelines will be updated "as needed."
The details were released just hours following New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio announcing vaccines will be required for restaurants, gyms goers and multiple indoor events/activities in the city.
The Met Museum itself currently requires face coverings even if visitors are vaccinated.
Earlier this year, the organizers behind Vogue's traditionally gonzo gala -- technically called the Costume Institute Benefit -- announced dates for two bashes: The first, a "more intimate" gathering on September 13, will highlight an exhibition of the same name, "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," which opens September 18 at the Anna Wintour Costume Center. The 2021 event will also commemorate the Costume Institute's 75th birthday; the festivities were cancelled outright in 2020 over coronavirus concerns.
