Pillow challenge, there’s a new sherif in town 🤠

#MetGalaChallenge

Yes please for the #MetGalaChallenge! This is just what my quarantine soul needs. The latest style challenge on the gram is going to END all challenges. Move over pillow case, you were yesterday’s news.

The 2020 Met Gala, AKA the biggest event on the fashion calendar, was scheduled for the ‘first Monday in May’, which would have been this coming Monday, but due to the ‘rona, it had to be postponed indefinitely (this year’s theme was ‘About Time: Fashion and Duration’). However, American performer Billy Porter isn’t going to let that get him down. He kickstarted the #MetGalaChallenge with Vogue, and it’s taking over Instagram.

With this year’s annual #MetGala (normally held on the First Monday in May) postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are mourning what is typically one of the glitziest red carpet events of the year. The star-studded affair was supposed to be held on May 4 this year and in the past, it has produced some iconic red carpet looks. For those still craving the glamour and extravagance that usually comes with the night, however, we are teaming up with @theebillyporter on a new Instagram challenge that pays tribute to the night’s peacocking spirit: Meet the #MetGalaChallenge. The task is simple: recreate your favorite red carpet look from a past #MetGala at home. Which ensemble you replicate, and what you use to make it, is entirely up to you—think outside of the box!

The challenge is to recreate your favourite red-carpet look from a past #MetGala, in the comfort of your own home. Someone help me take down this chandelier, I shotgun Katy Perry!

Uhm excuse me???? Did he just say that the winner might be featured in Vogue and has the chance to be reposted on his IG account?! I’m dead! You have until Sunday 3 May to enter.

Time to get inspired, these are the entries we are double tapping on:

Garbage bag vs. Wang.

All I can say is when people have too much time on their hands, things get real crazy, but we love it! The Met Gala lives on!
