There’s a new quarantine challenge set to take social media by storm – but it will take some fashion know-how and a lot of creativity.

It’s called the Met Gala Challenge, and it asks people to recreate their favourite Met Gala looks from home.

With the Met Ball postponed this year due to the coronavirus, Pose star Billy Porter and Vogue are asking people to let the gala live on from their living rooms.

“The task is simple,” says Vogue. “Recreate your favourite red carpet look from a past Met Gala at home.”

With the highly-anticipated event on the fashion calendar producing some of the most iconic and out-there looks ever to grace a red carpet, the challenge may be easier said than done!

“Which ensemble you replicate, and what you use to make it, is entirely up to you—think outside of the box,” says Vogue.

The magazine says the challenge is inspired by Porter’s recent viral fashion challenges on Instagram, asking fans to recreate some of his flamboyant looks.

Now he’s taking it a step further, encouraging people to revive any of the outfits that have appeared on the Met Ball red carpet over the years.

Billy Porter and Vogue will select a winner of the challenge, to be announced on 4 May.
