With the Met Gala 2020 event being postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic, enthusiasts have taken to recreating their favourite red carpet looks from previously held Met Gala events, but at home.

Vogue, whose editor-in-chief Anna Wintour took over as the chairperson of the gala in 1995, took to Instagram to share details on the Met Gala challenge that is now going viral on social media. In collaboration with American performer Billy Porter, the new fashion challenge “aims to bring the ball’s fashion-forward spirit to life”, wrote the magazine.

Billy Porter himself took to Instagram to announce the Met Gala challenge. “The time has come for the challenge to end all fashion challenges. Pick an iconic Met Gala look from year’s past and recreate it in your home! It could be Rihanna. It could be [Lady] Gaga. It could be me,” he said in a video, wearing a sequinned jacket and oversized glasses.
