Missing outrageous Met Gala? Join the fashion editor, Lisa Armstrong LIVE | Instant News

Hello, this is Lisa Armstrong, Head of Fashion of The Telegraph to guide you to throw a virtual Met Ball on Monday night.

The Met ball is scheduled to take place this Monday, but at least for this year, it’s already dark. That’s right, the most luxurious fashion parade on the planet has been smoothed during locking. This is only the second pause in 70 years endlessly invading popular culture. The first was in 2002, after 9/11. In other words, only disease and war can stop it, which, in its way, is impressive.

This is the biggest night of the fashion calendar – which co-host, Anna Wintour, is rumored to be checking every outfit before guests are allowed to enter it. If that is really Anna’s case, then what is it?

This is a night where we can see the Hollywood A-list and the catwalk (plus some reality stars) in their wildest clothes, measure the temperature of popular culture and find out if we like what we see. This is a swirling vortex of opulence, tents, coutures and jaws that tastes terrible that generates millions of dollars for charity (the charity becomes the Metropolitan Museum). Although not this year.

So what will all celebrities do with their time on Monday night? Dress in the glory of the past and voguing in front of their iPhone? Crying for their empty google calendar. Or have a whale while they look around for the extra large Ben & Jerry family on their Juicy Couture tracks and gradually turn into whales?

How you feel about Ball’s absence may depend on how you feel about exhibitors being licensed to compete with each other for attention. This is a dog-eat-dog arena where dressing up like a chandelier is not always enough. To truly get great value with world media, you must come as a rainbow, an angel, a plate painting of Julian Schnabel – or simply become Lady Gaga. Good taste and original style? Maybe not too much.

The ball has been called The Superbowl of the Red Carpet. And explained by Tina Fey, as a place where jerks abound and you want to punch everyone. To say it’s divisive is an understatement – but whether you like it or hate it, you can’t deny that it’s interesting entertainment. Plus, if you are a particular president, where else would you apply for a model (yes, at Ball in 2004, Trump asked Melania a question). So, take quarantine and follow me on Instagram @telegraph in Monday night at 6 pm British time to swirl through the best, worst, and most famous moments on Met Ball.

Photographs published by Vogue and shared by Coddington – some taken by Vogue’s mainstay Annie Leibovitz – show the dress wear mannequins scattered among the classic Met statues. Modern clothing, such as motorbike jackets and short skirts, are positioned next to ancient clothing with the same silhouette. In gloomy photos, items on the mannequins and in the display case look ready to launch, even though they won’t see it for months.

The curator behind the event, Andrew Bolton, plans to display 160 pieces of women’s clothing, which will be separated into two parts, according to Vogue.

The first is the chronological arrangement of black clothes. “This is a very rational and orderly fashion chronology from 1870 to 2020, the time scale of modernity,” Bolton said.

The second grouping will mostly be white ensembles with bursts of color scattered throughout, which will be ordered without thinking about usage time. “You can see it as a fold of time,” Bolton added.

The two-tone setting is very contrast bright show last year, which focuses on strange ideas camp.
