The list of hundreds of fashion, music, film, politics and corporate stars includes Beyoncé, Billy Eilish, Justin Bieber, Olivia Rodrigo, Megan T Stallion, Stroma, Elon Musk, Hillary Clinton, Glenn Close and Camille Cottin.
The gala concert, created in 1948, has long been reserved for the very high society of New York. In 1995, Anna Wintour turned this big parade into a “people’s” event adapted to the social media age.
This year, the title of honorary co-president was offered to Instagram boss Adam Mosseri, as well as Anna Wintour and stylist Tom Ford, the same source adds.
