Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for the most fashionable show in New York City.
After much anticipation—and a yearlong delay because of the coronavirus pandemic—the 2021 Met Gala was held on Sept. 13 with Hollywood’s biggest stars showing up and showing out for a safe and fabulous event.
While the guest list may have been smaller to keep up with safety protocols, many of your favorite actors, singers, athletes and red carpet pros attended the star-studded event.
For starters, Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis star Naomi Osaka served as the event’s co-chairs, while designer and filmmaker Tom Ford, Instagram head Adam Mosseri and Vogue‘s Anna Wintour held the title of honorary chairs.
This year’s theme was a salute to the evolution of American fashion and a celebration for the role of American labels in championing sustainability, diversity and inclusion.
And yes, the Met Gala invitation listed the dress code as “American independence.” With that in mind, many fashion experts predicted lots of American designers, patriotic makeup looks and sparkly sequins. So were they right on the money?
