Awards season has officially begun and already, it’s been a whirlwind of head-turning fashion looks. Just 24 hours after the wild red carpet moments at the VMAs, the biggest stars in entertainment gathered yet again — but this time, on the iconic steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City for the annual Met Gala. This year’s event was given the theme “In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion”, prompting guests to choose styles inspired by American fashion throughout history.
A clear standout trend was Old Hollywood glamour, as seen on A-listers such as Billie Eilish, Kaia Gerber, and Megan Fox. As always, there were some seriously out-there ensembles (Kim K’s has absolutely everyone buzzing), and of course, Rihanna’s surprising look served as the grand finale to the evening’s festivities. Ahead, see our roundup of the best-dressed celebrities at the 2021 Met Gala.
