Anna Wintour's dream Met Gala guests are Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton

This Monday will see the biggest event on the fashion calendar; the Met Gala, which Anna Wintour chairs.
In preparation for the big night, Anna appeared on the Today show, and was asked who her dream guests for the event would be.
She replied: ‘I would love to have the Duchess of Sussex and Duchess of Cambridge together. ‘They could leave their husbands at home; it’s the two of them I want.’
We reckon that’s an excellent shout – we’d love to see how Meghan and Kate would interpret a tricky Met Gala theme while also sticking to royal protocol.
Anna also revealed in the interview that she’s ‘had some very strange requests’ from this year’s guests, including ‘unusual methods of transport’. Interesting.
She wouldn’t say much else though, as all the details are top secret.

‘I think there are other processes in place now to take care of that, but it’s not my department,’ said Anna.
Oh, and some other interesting tidbits, as opaque as they may be: the red carpet might not be red, there’ll be a lot of feathers, and Anna already has Met Gala themes prepared for the next three years.
What is the Met Gala?
The Met Gala, also known as the Costume Institute Gala, is a fundraising event held each year at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
It was first held in 1948 by publicist Eleanor Lambert, but has since been taken over by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. Since Anna’s ruling, the event has become attended by all the celebs, who are all required to dress according to the theme of a new exhibition at the museum.
Since 1995 Anna has been running the event and selecting celebrity co-chairs, including Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Taylor Swift.
This year’s co-chairs are Lady Gaga, Alessandro Michele, Harry Styles, and Serena Williams.

The 2019 Met Gala will take place on 6 May at 7pm New York time (so midnight in the UK).
What is this year’s Met Gala theme?
As usual, it’s pretty complex and will require in-depth thinking from attendees.
The theme of the 2019 Met Gala is Camp: Notes on Fashion.
The new exhibition, curated by Andrew Bolton, centres around Susan Sontag’s essay from 1964, Notes on Camp. Camp is all about extravagance and being gloriously extra – so anyone who turns up in an LBD will be criminally ignoring the theme.
Anna Wintour described the theme as going ‘from sun kings to drag queens.’  Sounds fun.
Previous Met Gala themes have included Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination (2018), Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons (2017), Manus x Machina, Punk: Chaos to Couture (2016) and China: Through the Looking Glass (2015).
