The 2020 Met Gala has now been officially postponed. Yesterday, the Met Museum announced that all events and programs through May 15 will be postponed or canceled, The New York Times reports.

The Met Museum's decision arrived following the most-recent CDC recommendations, asking to shut down all gatherings of 50 people or more for the next eight weeks. On March 12, the Governor of New York, Andrew M. Cuomo, also banned all events of more than 500 people state-wide.

Originally scheduled for May 4, the Met Gala was going to be hosted by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, alongside Louis Vuitton's creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emma Stone, and Meryl Streep.

This year's theme was scheduled to be "About Time: Fashion and Duration," to coincide with the Met’s 150th anniversary. So far, no new date has been set, and no plans have been revealed regarding what's next for the Met Gala. Stay tuned for updates.
