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.

Lil Nas X portrayed a story through fashion in a three-part LGBTQ+ American fairytale. He arrived on the red carpet in a regal cape, concealing one’s true self, then shed it to reveal a shining gold Medusa-adorned armour. The armour signified protection from the prejudices faced as a Black, queer person. The final reveal was a skin-tight bodysuit representing an unguarded version of the rapper.
