Known for her style, Jennifer Lawrence will not only be a fashionista at next year's Met Gala. The Oscar-winning actress will co-chair the 2015 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit.

The Met Gala is set for May 4, 2015, and the theme will be "Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film and Fashion."

According to Vogue, the theme "will primarily examine how eastward-looking Westerners have understood, misunderstood, and appropriated Chinese culture in an exchange that Bolton likens to a complicated game of telephone (which the British call ‘Chinese whispers’). Drawing on more than a hundred couture and avant-garde samplings from designers as varied as Alexander McQueen and Laurence Xu, the cross-disciplinary exhibition will incorporate painting, decorative arts, and filmic representations of China."

One of last year's co-chairs is Lawrence's co-star in both Silver Linings Playbook and Serena, Bradley Cooper.

Anna Wintour is the primary chair of the Met Galas, but there are also honorary event day chairs. Last year's honorary event day chair was American businesswoman Aerin Lauder, and the year before that, the honor went to Beyonce.
