Timothée Chalamet is co-hosting the Met Gala.

The 25-year-old “Call Me By Your Name” star has long made headlines for his fresh take on fashion, sporting red carpet looks by Gucci, Haider Ackermann, Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen and other top-tier designers. 

Sources previously told Page Six that superstar poet Amanda Gorman and CFDA Chairman Tom Ford will also host the year’s most glamorous fête. 

We also exclusively reported that Vogue’s gala, also known as the “Fashion Oscars,” would be returning in person this year with an American theme. 

We’re told that the invite-only event — with solo tickets reportedly costing $30,000 and tables going for $275,000 — has already sold out. 

The event is normally held the first Monday in May, but has been pushed back to back to Sept. 13 in hopes that things will be more “normal.”

A source previously told us the event won’t be be on the first Monday of the month because that date is already occupied by Labor Day.

“Even Anna Wintour can’t change a federal holiday,” said the insider.

This year’s exhibit — which coincides with Vogue’s ball — will open in two parts.

“In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” will open on Sept. 18, 2021. Part two, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” will open on May 5 of next year.

The black-tie event, which raises funds for Met’s Costume Institute, is fashion’s biggest night. Guests in years pasts include everyone from Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian to Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and CAA’s Bryan Lourd. Performers have included Rihanna, The Weeknd and Cher.

Last year’s event was canceled due to COVID.
