The first Met Gala in 1948 was held at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, and 2021 is no different. It's a dream to attend the Met Gala, rubbing shoulders with all the megawatt celebrities on the red carpet, and that dream is one step closer to being realized because this year, it's possible to attend—virtually!


Vogue is hosting the only official livestream of the event, which is a fundraising benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Happening on September 13, the livestream will let you in on all the action as fashion's favorite faces take to the steps of the Metropolitan Museum in their finest attire.


The Met Gala livestream will begin at 5:30 PM EST (Eastern Standard Time) on the night of the Met Gala. For those in the Philippines, that means you can tune in to the livestream at 5:30 AM PHT (Philippine Standard Time) on September 14, Tuesday. It will be hosted by actor and recording artist Keke Palmer, and actor, writer, and director Ilana Glazer.
