In what is already turning out to be a bumper summer for the singer, she will now reportedly join co-chairs including actress Rooney Mara, Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci and magazine editrix Anna Wintour in hosting the biggest event in the fashion calendar.

According to WWD, the songstress’ name is listed on recently issued invitations to the star-studded event, dubbed the Met Ball, which will take place on 6th May. While still unconfirmed, this could see her stand on the red carpet receiving line to greet the gala’s A-list guests.
