Met Gala 2021: Take a look how Kim Kardashian, Kendall, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, others added glam
The Met Gala 2021, also known as the Costume Institute Gala or the Costume Institute Benefit, began on Monday. The topic for this year is "In America: A Fashion Lexicon."
Kim Kardashian, an American socialite and reality TV show personality, stole the show on the Met Gala 2021 red carpet by going totally incognito. The actress appeared at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City with designer Demna Gvasalia, wearing Balenciaga shrouds over her face.
Kim's dress quickly became the talk of the town, and it was dubbed one of her most memorable fashion moments of 2021. She walked the red carpet alone, concealing her face in an all-black Balenciaga suit with a ponytail and shoes.
Kendall Jenner arrived in a transparent glittering Givenchy gown. Jenner's outfit was inspired by Audrey Hepburn's dress in My Fair Lady, which she wore in the film My Fair Lady.
Givenchy designed the see-through curve-skimming gown worn by the 25-year-old model. The dress also had the same jewel-embellished sleeves and a choker, although it wasn't as transparent.
The legendary supermodel graced the red carpet in an otherworldly handmade brocade jumpsuit by British-American designer Harris Reed, which was coupled with a tiered, feathery overskirt and bespoke matching headpiece. The outfit was all red carpet gold, from the strapless bodice and palazzo trousers to the tiered, metallic-brushed overskirt—from the drama of the shape to the jaw-dropping embellishments.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, who just renewed their romance after several years apart, made their Met Gala appearance this year in Ralph Lauren gowns.
They both wore clothes from the same designer. Ben kept things simple in a Ralph Lauren tuxedo, while Jennifer brought her typical glitz to the carpet in a bespoke dark brown Ralph Lauren gown with a plunging neckline and thigh-high s
Megan made her avant-garde appearance in a dazzling red lace-up piece by Peter Dundas. She wowed with a plunging red lace-up Dundas gown adorned with sequins and cut-outs. According to sources, Megan's stylist Maeve Reilly said that the garment was embroided by around 50 individuals.
Kim Petras made the case for the horse girl as she walked the Met Gala red carpet for the first time. Petras wore a Collina Strada gown with a 3D horse head bustier (The Godfather, take note) and a dramatic, panniered skirt with a pattern from the brand's resort 2020 collection dubbed "Sistine Tomato."
The supermodel arrived to the event in head-turning style, channelling Jessica Rabbit not only with her strapless, high-slit Prada gown and leather arm gloves, but also with a fresh set of deep red waves.
The 42-year-old Almost Famous star was all smiles on the red carpet as she posed in a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. Her tiny bralette matched her pink skirt and Michael Kors floor-length feather duster.
Not only did the actress flaunt her toned abs, but she also flaunted her sparkly new bling just hours after announcing her engagement to Fujikawa, 35.
The actress walked the red carpet in an ultra feminine high ponytail with 1950s pin up bangs. (This was a recurring theme at the Met Gala this year.)
The hair transformation team of stylist Adir Abergel and colorist Daniel Moon used Virtue Labs hair products to create this look.
The couple, who have been dating for two years, made their first public appearance as a couple at the famous New York City fashion event. Cabello looked stunning in a purple sparkling crop top and skirt. Mendes accompanied her with an open leather jacket and black trousers. In front of the cameras, the two appeared to be in love.
