The much awaited Met Gala 2021 finally made its comeback to New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. “American Independence” was the Met Gala 2021 theme. It can be said to be the equivalent of Oscars for fashion. This year, some of the biggest names of the entertainment industry turned up in some of the most interesting costumes at the Met Gala 2021 red carpet. We bring to you some of the most talked about moments of the Met Gala 2021.
After a one year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Met Gala 2021 finally took place on 13th September 2021. With the Met Gala 2021 theme being “American Independence”, celebrities upped the game this year in some of the quirkiest outfits of their choices. From unbelievable Met Gala 2021 red carpet moments to internet memes striking again, we bring to you the most memorable moments of fashion’s biggest night.
1. “Tax The Rich”
The biggest highlight of the fundraising event had to be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ beautiful white dress. What was so special about it? Written in big red fonts were the words “Tax The Rich” across the entire back bodice. On her first ever appearance, AOC did manage to put the message across loud and clear.
2. Kiss of Masks
We were ecstatic to find out that our very own Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are back together. And they didn’t disappoint at the Met Gala either. The couple stole a quick kiss whilst wearing masks and gave us some nostalgic delights.
3. Nas’s Three-Tier Look
Lil Nas X was definitely the man of the night as he debuted at Met Gala and made some historic moments for fashion’s night out. Arriving in a gorgeous velvet cape that covered him from neck to toe, the rapper already had all eyes on him. He slid off the cape to reveal a golden armour that covered his entire body as he glistened brighter than the sun. He finally unclasped it all to reveal his ultimate look – a beautiful catsuit studded with glowing crystals.
4. Billie Eilish’s Bold Move
Billie Eilish, one of the four co-chairs of Met Gala 2021, paid a tribute to Old Hollywood in a beautiful peach-coloured ball gown. However, there’s more to the story. Eilish agreed to wear the Oscar de la Renta dress only if the company promised to stop the sale of fur clothes.
5. Shadow Ensemble
Kim Kardashian West made headlines when she appeared in an all-black attire that covered her from head to toe (yes, including her face). Unfortunately, she has yet again become the victim of internet memes as people call her a looking shadow amongst other things. People have also been taking a jab at her makeup artist, asking whether the makeup was even necessary when she showed up fully covered.
The Met Gala 2021 is undoubtedly one of the most iconic events of the year. But, why should celebrities have all the fun? Invite your friends over, put on some music on the Flutin app and slip into your best outfit to have fun at your own Met Gala.
