Arguably one of the most anticipated events of the year for fashion, Met Gala 2021 did not disappoint in bringing head-turning looks to the carpet. After its postponement, stars showed up and showed out at the event in their best rendition of this year’s theme, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.

Like most years, the Met Gala brought forward some of the most creative embodiments of the all-Americana style. With such a wide range of interpretations, there has been an abundance of opinions on which celebrity best captured the general essence of the night. Ultimately, the theme came down to a shortened single-word theme of “America.” Designers and their muse reimagined their definition and onlookers received were able to witness Lil Nas X‘s three-layer outfit that honored C3PO, Frank Ocean commenting on the future of the world with robots and A$AP Rocky giving a masterclass in staying cozy and warm.

While the tradition of the event is to raise money for the Costume Institute, Twitter’s tradition is to comment on the larger-than-life avant-garde outfits worn by the celebrities in attendance. Take a look below at some of the reactions the outfits have garnered on Twitter.
