Anna Wintour is hinting at what to expect at this year’s Met Gala.
The Editor-in-Chief at Vogue magazine joined the panel at Tina Brown’s 10th Annual Women in the World Summit on Friday and teased what she hopes for at the highly anticipated first Monday in May.
This year’s theme is “Camp: Notes On Fashion”, so what is Wintour expecting to wear on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6?
“I haven’t decided yet, I have options,” she explained. “I’m really hoping that someone will arrive in hiking boots and a backpack.”
And while the fashion at the annual event is always unexpected, one person that will not be attending is the leader of the United States, Donald Trump.
When asked if there was anything the U.S. President could do to get an invite, Wintour simply replied, “Absolutely nothing.” Watch Wintour answer at 27:16 in the video above.
The 2019 gala is the first without fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld, who passed away earlier this year, and Wintour says he’s already missed. “There was no one like Karl,” she reveals. “He was just a completely exceptional person. He was a linguist, he was a historian, he was a designer, decorator, philanthropist, humanitarian.”
She continued, “He was witty, he was wicked, he was the best kind of friend to have. He was incredibly generous and kind. He was this larger than life figure that I think we all need to inspire the world. It was very poignant for me when we lost him.”
