The rerun of “In America: An Anthology in Fashion” will take place on May 5, 2022
Last Monday, the annual Met Gala took place, often referred to as the fashion event of the year. After a year of delay due to COVID-19, the elite of our country proved with the theme “America: A Lexicon of Fashion” that even the elite of society leaves everything behind until the last minute.
Fortunately, event host Anna Wintour is giving her top-class guest list a second chance.
Yesterday, Wintour announced that the American theme will be repeated for next year – giving their guests the opportunity to really make an effort.
Our second attempt with the theme “In America: An Anthology in Fashion” will take place in May 2022 and will likely show some familiar faces.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez caused a stir at the first event wearing a white dress with the slogan “Control the Rich”.
Ocasio-Cortez was one of the few guests on the subject who embodied one of the purest American values out there – performative activism – when they grappled with the Elbows rubbed by the rich and famous.
“I like to do this thing that I guess the Met Gala theme is based on the outfits,” said fashion major Mary Antoinette. “I’ve had a really tough time this year, but when AOC came out with that ironic twist, I finally got it.”
Socialite and reality star Kim Kardashian is another famous face rumored to be returning for the May 2022 event.
“I’m honestly not sure why I have to do this again,” Kardashian said on her Instagram story after the event. “I was dressed like the soul of our former president. What’s wrong with that? “
Kim wasn’t the only Kardashian to make headlines about her participation. Kourtney appeared as the ghost of an old dress – apparently given to her mini-me, Addison Rae.
After attending her first Met Gala last Monday with a hairstyle at least similar to the classic American soccer mom look, TikTok superstar Addison Rae actually appears to be in high spirits to return to the museum for the 2022 gala.
“I’m so excited!” Rae said in a statement. “I can’t wait to show my next look on the red carpet next spring. #FashionNovaPartner! “
Many of us are sure to be excited to see which celebrity girlfriend will pay them to borrow a look from next year.
Even more fascinating than how the returning guests dealt with this news is how the new guests receive it. Rapper Nicki Minaj is a star fans are hoping for, especially in May.
Minaj caused a stir last week when she confirmed on Twitter that she was not attending the event because of her vaccination status against COVID-19. Then she explained her reluctance to get the vaccine because her friend had reacted to the vaccination.
Minaj said her cousin’s friend’s testicles were so swollen after being vaccinated against COVID-19 that the friend’s fiancé canceled her wedding. Although it’s unclear whether the cause of the reaction was due to the vaccine or untreated chlamydia, Minaj nonetheless remains cautious with the shot.
“Nicki’s tweets really show the essence of American ignorance at the time,” said junior biologist, Georgia Washington. “She was actually one of the only ones who understood the subject, and she wasn’t there!”
In fact, there can be nothing more American than spreading misinformation on social media.
Despite the thematic fights, last Monday’s event was certainly an unforgettable experience. Hopefully it taught guests a thing or two about what it really means to be American.
“I just hope people can focus less on American values - which, let’s face it, nobody really understands – and more on American fashion,” said Jeff Thomerson, senior political scientist. “I can’t wait to see more camo prints and Ugg boots on the red carpet in May.”
