How to watch the Met Gala's special livestream events this week

The 2020 Met Gala might be postponed, but there are several special events you can watch this year instead!

A Moment at the Met will be hosted by Vogue and livestreamed exclusively on YouTube on May 4, which was the day the 2020 Met Gala was meant to take place. The event kicks off at 6 p.m. EST on Vogue's YouTube page, and will feature special performances from Florence + The Machine and Virgil Abloh. It will be preceded by a variety of flashback moments honouring the prestigious fashion event's history.

Fans can also watch Liza Koshy's Best Red Carpet Moments at 10 a.m. EST, Life in Looks: Naomi Campbell at 3 p.m. EST and a special Everything You Need to Know About the Met Gala at 7 p.m. EST.

"It would be impossible to recreate the gala on Monday evening, though I have loved hearing how so many are marking the occasion in their own ways," style maven Anna Wintour, who is also Vogue's Editor in Chief, said in a statement. "So instead, I asked a few friends to join me for a simple moment – one that I hope will bring us all a bit of joy."

The events continue into May 5, with two separate specials screening that day: Met Oral History: Liv Tyler and Stella McCartney at 10 a.m. EST and Met Oral History: Cardi B and Jeremy Scott at 3 p.m. EST.

The theme of this year's Met Gala was supposed to have been About Time: Fashion and Duration. It was to be co-chaired by Anna, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquière. It's not known whether that theme will go ahead at a later date or when the 2020 gala will be rescheduled.
