After a year-long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Met Gala returned with a bang on September 13, 2021. The theme, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” celebrated American style in all its vastness and diversity.

The night was a star-studded affair, with celebrities from all walks of life gracing the red carpet. From Lady Gaga’s theatrical entrance in a voluminous white cape by Versace to Timothée Chalamet’s unconventional Haider Ackermann and Rick Owens combo, the attendees embraced the theme with creativity and individuality.

A Celebration of American Fashion

The “In America” theme was a broad canvas, allowing for a wide range of interpretations. Some celebrities went for classic Americana, like Billie Eilish in a custom Oscar de la Renta gown reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe. Others used fashion to make political statements. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s white Aurora James gown emblazoned with “Tax the Rich” was a powerful commentary on economic inequality

Memorable Moments

The 2021 Met Gala was filled with unforgettable moments. Kim Kardashian’s all-black Balenciaga ensemble, completely obscuring her face, sparked conversation and debate. Meanwhile, Rihanna’s elegant maternity look in a custom black ensemble by Demna Gvasalia for Balenciaga was a showstopper.

A Night to Remember

The 2021 Met Gala marked the triumphant return of the fashion world’s biggest night. It was a celebration of American creativity, self-expression, and, of course, incredible fashion. The event raised millions of dollars for the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, ensuring that fashion’s history continues to be preserved.
