Met Gala 2021 kicked off in style as fashion’s biggest night in celebration of the Costume Institute’s newest exhibition, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion. Originally supposed to be held on the first Monday in May, this year’s gala was postponed to the evening of September 13 due to COVID-19. Celebrities across industries took to the Met Gala carpet to showcase their interpretation of the theme.

The carpet saw multiple embodiments of American style, be it through more prominent and flashy ensembles that paid an homage to the star-spangled motif or more discreet nods to the theme. Throughout the years, the Met Gala has hosted an abundance of iconically memorable outfits and has become known as a more-is-more event for celebrities looking to flex their connections to the fashion industry. This year’s Met Gala was co-chaired by pop sensation Billie Eilish, critically-acclaimed actor Timothée Chalamet, global tennis star Naomi Osaka and American poet and activist Amanda Gorman.

Eilish chose an Oscar de la Renta gown, while Chalamet wore a full white satin Haider Ackermann suit paired with high-top Converses. Osaka was dressed in aLouis Vuitton which was inspired by the traditional Japanese kimono structure and Gorman steps out in a custom Vera Wang gown inspired by the Statue of Liberty. Thom Browne had multiple star moments as the American tailoring-centric brand dressed Pete Davidson and Evan Mock.

Frank Ocean turned heads when he showed up on the carpet with a neon green robot baby in his arms. While his outfit was a masterclass in minimalism, opting for a simple black suede, three-piece Prada suit and a white T-shirt, his fully-functioning robot baby stole the show. Lil Nas X showed up in his own robotics-inspired ensemble for a three-part fit that saw him go from wearing a cape to a golden suit of armor to a bodysuit adorned in Versace’s signature house print. Kim Kardashian enters the gala with Balenciaga designer, Demna Gvasalia, both in a matching getup that saw them covered head-to-toe in black, keeping onlookers guessing.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky made a fashionably late entrance, shutting down the carpet — as has become expected of the musician. Arriving in great anticipation, Rihanna commanded the room with a Balenciaga overcoat and a matching toque. Not one to shy away from show-stopping details, the black ruffles added more volume to the chic interpretation of the all-Americana style. The singer was joined by her boyfriend Rocky, who was dressed in a quilt-inspired look constructed by ERL. Underneath the multicolored cape was a sleek suit ensemble, matching Rihanna’s classic outfit.
