The greatest fashion celebration is behind us. Another Met Gala took place on the night of September 13-14. At the Metropolitan Museum of Art, dozens of celebrities from the headlines appeared at the iconic event. They posed for photos in surprising stylizations, among others Rihanna, ASAP Rocky, Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Jennifer Lopez and Timothée Chalamet. Who looked the best? Here is a compilation of the fashion editor of the Dziendobry.tvn.pl website, Sabina Zięby.
Met Gala 2021 – information
The date of this year’s Met Gala was special as everything was postponed by the coronavirus pandemic to a later date. The event moved from early May to September in the hope that most Americans would receive the COVID-19 vaccine by then. Everyone missed this fashion holiday because in 2020, for the first time in 74 years, it was not there at all. In turn, in May 2022, the Met Gala is to take place according to tradition.
The theme of this year’s event was “American Independence”, while the exhibition “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”, initiated by the gala, explores contemporary codes of American fashion. This year’s event, together with Anna Wintour, Tom Ford and Adam Mosseri, was co-hosted by actor Timothée Chalamet, artist Billie Eilish, tennis player Naomi Osaka and poet Amanda Gorman, who performed at the inauguration of Joe Biden. See how the stars looked.
Rihanna and ASAP Rocky
All fans of the singer and rapper were waiting for this moment. Ever since the media circulated the information that the stars who had been friends for years began to meet, the paparazzi followed their every move. They, however, remained adamant, and although they did get caught at romantic dinners or kisses, they did not show up in public together. Until now. For the great fashionista who evoked emotions at the Met Gala every time with her styling, this event was perfect for presenting a new relationship. The more that ASAP Rocky is also a stylish musician. Together, they were the last guests to conquer the red carpet. It is worth adding that due to the fact that Rihanna was already a co-chair of the event, she is well aware that a nice dress is not enough for this event. Due to this, she showed up in a black ruffled outfit from Balenciagathat was unlike anything she’d ever worn before. Her partner, in turn, wore a specially made, quilt-inspired look from ERLHowever, it is worth mentioning that underneath it delighted in a neat tuxedo with shiny brooches and a shirt with a ruffle.
Hailey Bieber and Justin Bieber
Mr. and Mrs. Bieber looked neat, elegant and without any frills. The model chose a chic maxi dress from Saint Laurent with diamond trim at the neckline, which emphasized her figure in a beautiful way. The musician, in turn, decided to promote his own brand Drew House and chose a suit consisting of a short jacket and wide trousers. It’s worth paying attention to his shoes, because he put on sneakers with a print – fun and classy. However, they could both take the gala topic more to heart and go crazy a bit.
The model is already a regular at the Met Gala and attracts the attention of hundreds of paparazzi every year. At this year’s event, she chose a popular, but always impressive, naked-dress creation. Dress from Givenchy with thousands of crystals mounted on a delicate mesh, it revealed her slender figure and emphasized the waist. Kendall Jenner matched the delicate styling with an equally subtle makeup and hairstyle.
You could expect such styling from Kim Kardashian. The celebrity has been promoting the new album of her ex (?) Spouse with a specific dress for some time. She appeared in a similar set a few weeks ago during the listening session of the “Donda” album, and on Saturday, September 11, when her photos in a leather outfit from Demna Gvasalia circulated the whole world. At the Met Gala, the star once again opted for a black total look from Balenciaga and – what’s more – it was also done by the designer with whom she came to the event. Fans initially thought there was Kanye West under the hood, but disappointment awaited them.
This year, the young singer co-hosted the gala and at first glance you can see that she took this challenge seriously. Her styling amazed the media. Billie showed up in a pale pink fairy-tale ball gown from Oscar de la Renta. The corset emphasized the artist’s bust, the long train added drama to the styling, and the peach shade harmonized with her fair complexion and the cool shade of Marilyn Monroe-style hair. Amazing!
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
As you can see, after the couple’s debut official departure at the Venice Film Festival, Ben and Jennifer have no intention of limiting themselves. A few days after the aforementioned red carpet, they now showed up at the Met Gala. Affleck did not distinguish themselves with styling and chose a classic tuxedo, but JLo – as befits a fashionista – took into account the theme of the event. The artist posed for photos in a brown styling with a deep neckline from Ralph Laurenwhich alluded to the style of cowboys.
A lot has changed with Gigi Hadid since the last Met Gala as she became a mom. In an interview given before the event for “Vogue”, the model confessed that she was very happy about the event, because she would be able to meet all old friends with whom she had not had time to see because of new parties. She also added that she is happy because … she has returned to her old figure. Admittedly, she was right because looking at her figure in a black and white outfit from Prady it’s hard to imagine that she was pregnant not so long ago.
Donatella Versace and Maluma
Donatella Versace became famous not only for her exclusive fashion house, but also for numerous plastic surgeries that slightly disfigured her face. After the photos from the Met Gala, however, it seems as if her love for the scalpel is not so strong anymore. The designer’s mouth looked fresh despite the heavy make-up. In addition, the star decided to emphasize her figure with a creation from her own fashion house inspired by a dress from 1992, as well as the works of Charles James. In turn, the accompanying musician Maluma put on a red leather set with studs also from Versace, referring to the American cowboys.
The young actor is known for his unforced and sometimes even sloppy style. However, it is known that Timothée Chalamet inspires millions of people with his nonchalant sets. It was no different this time, although he co-hosted the cult event. He chose a white suit for the gala from Haidea Ackermann consisting of a short jacket and loose trousers, which, after putting on socks, became the so-called “alladins”. The artist made sure that the legs did not cover his legs, because he had … classic Converse on his feet. He combined ease and elegance in a neat way.
Megan Fox was called the sexiest woman in the world a few years ago and it seems that she will not be easily taken away from her title. On Sunday, September 12, the actress appeared on MTV VMA in a widely commented naked-dress, which revealed her figure. A day later, on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she appeared in a sexy outfit with bindings from the brand Dundaswhich revealed her waist, cleavage and long legs. The star also decided to add a fringe in the style of old Hollywood for the evening.
Recently, the actress has been loud due to her unconfirmed relationship with Channing Tatum. Paparazzi caught them at meetings several times, which they did not fail to capture in photos. Interestingly, the artists also came together at the Met Gala, but they avoided posing for photos together. Probably the actor must have regretted that he did not hold his beloved in his arms all the time, because the model walked on the red carpet in a naked dress made of crystal mesh from Saint Laurent. The Kusa mountain barely covered her breasts, while the thongs completely exposed her bottom. Not too much?
I must admit that Kaia Gerber, despite her young age, knows how to delight. He is not driven by the desire to cause a scandal and gain media attention with a shocking outfit, but focuses on the classics. The model at the Met Gala posed for photos in a stunning black dress from Oscar de la Renta. The corset emphasized her slim waist, while the large draped bottom of the outfit made her look elegant. The complement was a haircut in the style of old Hollywood. Shot in 10!
The actress was also one of those stars who opted for a “naked dress”, i.e. naked-dress, but she – so as not to look too vulgar – had an extra white cape that added elegance. For styling from Miu Miu Emily Blunt additionally chose an eye-catching silver band with stars. It did not go unnoticed.
Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes
A pair of young musicians came to the gala together and although they chose the same designer, as they admitted in an interview for “Vogue” – they did not worry about whether their stylizations would match on the red carpet. Both Camila and Shawn found the American style to reflect perfectly Michael Kors and for this reason they opted for his creations. The singer chose a strong purple and revealed her stomach and ripped legs. The musician, on the other hand, appeared in a set with leather elements inspired by cowboys.
