Who Are the Met Gala 2021 Hosts?

The 2021 Met Gala will be co-hosted by several major names from the worlds of music, acting, sports and literature.

The annual event—one of the most glamorous nights of the yearmakes its big return on September 13 after it was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Met Gala—organized and presided over by Anna Wintour, former Vogue editor-in-chief and now Conde Nast's chief content officer—has been held every year since 1948 to raise money for the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The event has reportedly widened its net, with influencers, social media personalities and athletes joining the A-list attendees this year as part of its focus on young talent. This includes four youthful celebrities who are co-hosting the 2021 event.

Naomi Osaka

The 23-year-old women's tennis player, who was born in Japan but raised in the U.S. after moving to New York when she was just 3, currently ranks as world no. 3.

She has won four majors so far in her career: the Australia Open in 2019 and 2021, and the U.S. Open in 2018 and 2020.

Osaka made headlines earlier this year after dropping out of three tournaments, which raised debate about athletes' mental health amid increasing media scrutiny.

Her hobbies include fashion as well as gaming and photography, according to her WTA profile.

Amanda Gorman

Born and raised in Los Angeles, the 23-year-old poet came into the spotlight this year following the reading of one of her poems at Joe Biden's inauguration in January. The president chose Gorman's poem "The Hill We Climb" to be read at the ceremony, which made her the youngest poet to have served in that role.

In 2017, she was named the country's first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate and was previously the youth poet laureate of Los Angeles.

Back in February, Gorman was also the first poet commissioned to write a poem to be read at the Super Bowl. Her poem highlighted the resilience and leadership of three Americans amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic who were named Super Bowl LV's honorary captains.

Gorman is the founder and executive director of One Pen One Page, an organization that provides free creative writing programs for underserved youth.
