NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) — The Met Gala is back.

The annual extravaganza with the most dazzling red carpet in the world of fashion returns Monday.

The evening, a fundraiser for the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, will be hosted by Regina King, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, with Vogue’s Anna Wintour running the whole shebang as usual.

The theme: “Gilded glamour,” which should bring out some dressy period-style gowns that would go well on HBO’s “The Gilded Age.”

The sartorial theme stems from the spring fashion exhibit it celebrates: “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” exploring the roots of American fashion.
