Billie Eilish, Timothée Chalamet, Naomi Osaka, and Amanda Gorman are serving as co-chairs of this year's tradition-breaking Met Gala, according to Vogue.

This year's event, which is returning after a year's hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will be held in two parts.

First, on September 13, the "intimate" red-carpet event will welcome guests to the "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" exhibit, which is meant to serve as a "deep dive into American ingenuity," according to the fashion publication.

Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri, and Vogue's Anna Wintour will serve as honorary chairs for the event.

The four young co-chairs are each meant to represent the individualism of American style.

"They may approach the concept differently, but their shared passion for expressing themselves through clothing connects with the exhibition's theme," Vogue said. "Chalamet, Eilish, Osaka, and Gorman have all developed a distinct visual language for their public personas, one that is informed by the legacy of iconic fashion made in the U.S.A."

The exhibit will later open to the public on September 18. It's said to resemble a home with "intersecting walls and rooms."

The second part of this year's exhibit, called "An Anthology of Fashion," is set to open on May 5, 2022.

"Our intention for part two is to bring these stories together in an anthology that challenges perceived histories and offers alternative readings of American fashion," Andrew Bolton of the Costume Institute told Vogue.
