“This will be the purist definition of fish out of water but my friends that are much cooler than me have said I must attend.”

He jokingly – or maybe seriously – adds that he’ll need “some outfit ideas.”


The gala, which is held on the first Sunday of May, is an annual fundraiser which benefits the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City.

All guests are personally approved by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and the list usually involves the biggest names in fashion, music and Hollywood.

This year, the event will be co-chaired by Oscar-winner Regina King, Broadway superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda and Hollywood royalty Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.
