The annual Met Gala takes place on Monday, May 6th – and this year Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, and Serena Williams are joining Vogue editor Anna Wintour as co-chairs.

The theme for the prestigious event will be ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’, based on Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay ‘Notes on ‘Camp.’

Anna Wintour has co-chaired the gala since 1995, and carefully selects a handful of celebrity co-chairs to join her every year.

Last year’s celebrity co-chairs were Amal Clooney, Rihanna, and Donatella Versace.

Other past co-chairs include Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Marc Jacobs.

The annual gala in New York City will be held on May 6, 2019, ahead of the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institution’s exhibit of the same name.

Coverage from the red carpet is expected to start at 4pm PT, which will be around midnight in Ireland.
