Katy Perry and Pharrell will be the co-chairs of Met Gala 2017, Vogue revealed today. The theme was also announced for fashion's biggest night, which takes place at New York's Metropolitian Museum of Art. The annual fundraiser and Costume Institute exhibit will honor the legendary Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo. The Japanese native is known for challenging the conventional fashion norms throughout her decades-long career.
Vogue states the exhibit (opening May 4) will be the first monograph show to focus on a living designer since the museum's Yves Saint Laurent exhibit in 1983. Last year, Taylor Swift was given the co-chair role alongside the magazine's editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
