Fashion’s biggest night, the Met Gala is back! Typically held on the first Monday in May, this year, the event was postponed due to COVID-19 and fell on the 13th of September.
On the glamorous steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, A-listers wore their best in celebration of America, the theme for the year. Inspired by the Costume Institute’s newest exhibition, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” which opens to the public on September 18.
Anna Wintour, honorary chairman of the Met Gala represented the florals of spring, in Oscar de la Renta. Wintour wore a custom pressed flower cotton poplin gown with a V neckline and tiered pleated skirt.
Another Oscar de la Renta design was worn by Billie Eilish. The co-chair of the Met Gala exuded old Hollywood glamour in a custom tulle corset gown that cascaded into a blush ombré skirt and train. Adding shimmer to her outfit are Cartier High Jewelry earrings with diamonds, set in platinum.
Camila Cabello & Shawn Mendes
For her Met debut, Camila Cabello shines in a monochrome purple look by Michael Kors. Posing with her beau Shawn Mendes, who looks ready to rock in a leather getup, also by Michael Kors.
Levy donned a meaningful outfit by Loewe for the gala. Replicating American multimedia artist and LGBTQIA+ activist, David Wojnarovicz’s (1954-1992), an image of two men kissing from called ‘Fuck You Faggot Fucker,’ Levy celebrated queer love as well as a Wojnarovicz, an important American voice.
The model looked elegant in a white column dress with a thigh-high leg slit in the back by Prada. Hadid completed the look with leather gloves and a high ponytail.
In yet another stunning red carpet look, Jennifer Lopez dons a custom Ralph Lauren embroidered dress. Her ensemble is inspired by the West, with beaten silver jewellery, a hat, a faux fur jacket and a leather belt.
Carolina Herrera Good Girl ambassador Karlie Kloss walks the red carpet in a custom gown by the fashion house. The dress recreates a red rose, the national flower of America, with a dramatic flourish.
Making a statement in head-to-toe black, Kim Kardashian wears custom Balenciaga. While glitz seemed to be the theme of the hour, Kardashian’s stark ensemble granted the reality star anonymity.
In complete contrast to her sister, Kendall Jenner takes to the red carpet in a see-through Givenchy gown. The look is inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s dress in My Fair Lady and included the same jewel-embellished sleeves and a choker.
