In the episode, Wintour kicked things off by discussing Vogue and CFDA’s efforts to raise funds for fashion businesses hard hit by COVID-19.
On the topic of the Met Gala (originally scheduled to take place May 4th), Wintour noted that once the Metropolitan Museum of Art decided to shut its doors through July, there was no choice but to cancel the event. And while Wintour didn’t mention the much-celebrated red carpet, she added, “We are hopeful we will be opening the exhibition in October.”
When discussing what will change post-pandemic, Wintour said, “We’ve talked for years about how the shows seem stuck in time and that we need to change, but it’s almost like we needed this terrible event to make us really understand it’s not about needing change, we have to change, we are going to change.
Wintour closed out the video by encouraging all U.S. voters to get out and vote for Joe Biden for president in November.
