The Met Gala – known as the Fashion Industry Oscars – was first introduced in 1948, two years after the Museum of Costume Art merged with the Metropolitan Museum of Art to become the Costume Institute in 1946. Each May, the annual fundraising event celebrates the opening of the Spring Exhibition. This year, however, the Met Gala takes place in September after the 2020 event was canceled due to the coronavirus.
This year’s exhibition will be divided into two parts. The first segment, titled “In America: A Fashion Lexicon,” will begin on September 18. With a focus on the “modern vocabulary of American fashion”, it will honor the 75th anniversary of the Costume Institute.
Then, for the second part of the exhibition, which will open on May 5, 2022, there will be another Met Gala in Celebration, which will take place on May 2, 2022. The second segment of the exhibition is a collaboration with the Costume Institute and the American Wing. . He will explore the development of American fashion through a more detailed historical lens.
It wasn’t until last year that the “Second Chance” star dipped her own toes into the shoe industry. Although she’s previously worked with a mix of brands on collaborations and campaigns, the JLo Jennifer Lopez collection at DSW is the musician’s first solo line; the brand includes a variety of stylish shoes ranging from sky-high platforms and glittering pumps to strappy sandals, all retailing for $ 59 to $ 189.
As if all of her tracks weren’t enough, in recent seasons alone the musician has also featured in major campaigns as well as a few big names in Fall 21. She has modeled for Versace, starred in commercials for Guess and Coach in more than being a judge and executive producer for “World of Dance”. She also launched a new J-Lo Beauty line earlier this season.
