The is the biggest fashion event in the entertainment industry has a theme each year, and this year, Met Gala 2021 wasn’t left out.
This year’s theme paid tribute to the ingenuity of the American style. Guests were to have their looks reflect America’s gusty, adventurous sartorial spirit.
The guests weren’t mandated to wear a piece from a homegrown label. This freedom allowed for a range of interpretations and creativity, making its red carpet one of the most exciting to date.
The Met event is held yearly to raise funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. However, the Gala returns physically after being held virtually last year due to the pandemic.
