Wondering how, and where, to watch the 2021 Met Gala? Well, you’re in luck: Vogue is hosting the only official livestream of the event, which is known as fashion’s biggest night out. Occurring on September 13, the livestream will allow you to be a part of all the action as megawatt celebrities take to the steps of Metropolitan Museum in their finest attire—all with the simple click of a button.

The Met Gala livestream will begin at 5:30pm EST (1:30am GST) on the night of the Met Gala, and will be hosted by two special guests: actor and recording artist Keke Palmer, and actor, writer, and director Ilana Glazer. Together, they will provide unprecedented access to the Met Gala’s famous red carpet, interviewing high-profile guests as they arrive in grand style. (Expect a double dose of humor and irreverence along the way.) To watch the official livestream, be sure to check back to this post on the night of or you can watch on Twitter.

The theme for this year’s Met Gala is a celebration of American fashion, so look out for plenty of star-spangled style throughout the evening. “American Independence” is listed as the official dress code, and this can mean anything from splashy, red-white-and-blue looks, to more discreet wears that are made here in the U.S. No matter the interpretation, celebrities are bound to make major statements with their outfits—the Met Gala has a history of creating memorable fashion looks, after all.

This year’s notable cochairs, meanwhile, include the Gen Z superstars Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka, and Amanda Gorman—so expect to see them make a cameo on the carpet and livestream, too. Tom Ford, Instagram’s Adam Mosseri, and Anna Wintour will also serve as the honorary chairs.
