The "looks" most impressive of the Met Gala 2021


The most anticipated and stellar red carpet in the fashion world unfolded this Monday in New York.

The Met Gala – or the Gala of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (Met, for its acronym in English) – brought together some of the best-known celebrities on the planet.

The event, which is usually held on the first Monday in May, returned after being canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And while her celebrity guests had to abide by the rules to prevent the spread of COVID, including wearing masks indoors, many couldn’t resist seeking sheer glamor.

The theme of this year’s wardrobe is “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”, and the looks were inspired by all kinds of things, from the Matrix film franchise to the Statue of Liberty.

The event was co-hosted by the pop star Billie Eilish, the tennis player Naomi Osaka, the actor Timothée Chalamet and the poet Amanda Gorman.

The custom design was devised by Demna Gvasalia, creative director of fashion house Balenciaga.

Among the last to arrive at the Gala was Rihanna, who grabbed the show’s attention at past events, wearing outfits including a pope-inspired costume in 2018.
