The annual Met Gala is still weeks away, but fashion fans are already anticipating what the event’s theme and guest list will be like a full year from now in 2020. We’ve glimpsed into our crystal ball and have created odds for this star-studded soiree.

What Will Be the Theme for the 2020 Met Gala?

What Will Be the Theme for the 2020 Met Gala? SBD’s Odds
Minimalism 17/3
NASA/Mars Exploration 17/3
Early 2000s 9/1
Political Evolution/Revolution 9/1
20/20 Vision 23/2
Climate Change 93/7
The Presence of Time 47/3
Architecture 47/3
Science Fiction 19/1
Nudes and Neutrals 19/1

Considering how grandiose the themes have been over the past decade it’s possible the Met Gala will want to follow current trends and switch to minimalism.

When you consider the highly beloved ideology of Marie Kondo’s Tidying Up and how society seems to be switching gears to a minimalist base, it seems this theme could easily be approached.

Other hot topics such as climate change, the trendy nostalgia that is occurring with early 2000s style, and the upcoming 2020 Presidential Election may creep their way into the theme as well.

Who Will Be the Host for the 2020 Met Gala?

Previous hosts for the Met Gala have ranged anywhere on the A-list between sports, fashion, politics, film, and music. We’ve seen some mega stars like Rihanna and Nicole Kidman take this job in the past.

What previous hosts have in common is not only their attention-grabbing star status, but also their personal style. These hosts have been selected based on years they’ve been notable for their off-the-charts style game.

We saw Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively strut their stuff. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen dazzled. And we can’t forget Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs stunning in a one-two punch. So who will be next?

While individual style is always the real ticket, it’s still fun to see which couple pair up their looks to create even more of a themed effect.

A mix of long-standing romances and newly together couples always come out for the Met Gala.

Which Celeb Beefs Will Come to a Head at the 2020 Met Gala Together?

Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker 19/1
Jordyn Woods and Khloe Kardashian 19/1
Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez 19/1

While the Met Gala is technically a fundraiser and meant to be a positive experience, you can’t deny the fact that some stars just don’t get along. Naturally, if you put this many of them into a room and some dirty looks, off the cuff remarks, or full-on brawls are bound to happen.

Odds a Presidential Hopeful Attends 2020 Met Gala

Will a Presidential Hopeful Attend the 2020 Met Gala? SBD’s Odds
Yes 2/3
No 3/2

It’s almost time for a new President to be crowned. Whether it’s Trump running again or other candidates in the running, someone is bound to show up at the Met Gala.

Typically we see more entertainers at this event that politicians, but Donald Trump is the first “celebrity president” of our era, so really, anything can happen.

There have been rumors about everyone from Michelle Obama to Dwayne Johnson running for office in 2020, so that leaves plenty of room for overlap.

Who Will Be the Best Dressed at the 2020 Met Gala?

Lana Del Rey 4/1
Rihanna 17/3
Zendaya 17/3
Lady Gaga 9/1
Chadwick Boseman 9/1
Sarah Jessica Parker 9/1
Lupita Nyong’o 19/1
Michael B. Jordan 19/1
Kanye West 19/1
Priyanka Chopra 19/1

We’ve seen headdresses, feet-long skirt trains, bird attaches, and Pope costumes. The Met Gala has it all and attendees aren’t afraid to leave their stage fright at home when donning these costumes.

Simple gowns and demure choices are often seen as too boring and uneventful. But too over-the-top gets a bit costumey. Fans seem to like something more middle of the road when selecting their sartorial favorites here.
