The pictures juxtapose old and new outfits with similar silhouette. As part of the show, curator Andrew Bolton was expected to feature 160 pieces of womenswear, divided into two sections. The first comprises a chronological arrangement of black outfits, from 1870 to 2020. The second showcases white ensembles with bursts of colour, according to Vogue. Bolton found inspiration for the exhibition in the 1992 film Orlando, based on Virginia Woolf’s novel of the same name.

The gala was to be co-chaired by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
