After making a splash last year at the MET Gala, Chadwick Boseman is set to attend again on May 6. The 2019 edition will be hosted (as always) by Anna Wintour, with co-chairs Serena Williams, Lady Gaga, Harry Styles and Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele. The guest list was revealed on Wednesday, and names on it included Bradley Cooper, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Lopez with fiance Alex Rodriguez and our very own Chadwick Boseman, among others. This time, the theme is “Camp: Notes of Fashion”, so it’ll be interesting to see what they’ll wear this year.
Many of us remember Chadwick’s (do we dare to say) iconic all-white Versace outfit at last year’s MET fundraiser for the Costume Institute in the theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” So the anticipation is high for Boseman’s look at this year’s event. I’ve featured a few photos from his pope-inspired ensemble from 2018 below.
