It is that time of the year where the MET Gala, America’s biggest fashion event, takes place. The MET Gala affectionately referred to as “fashion’s biggest night out” or “party of the year,” is a fundraising benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City that welcomes stars, young creatives, and industry prodigies. As usual, the event seeks to honor the creativity that fuels the industry. Every year, there is a theme for each MET Gala, and this year’s theme is American Independence or Fashion. The theme for MET Gala 2021 offers tribute to the finesse of American style. The theme looks to reflect the wild and daring spirit of America.
This freedom allowed for a range of diverse interpretations amongst stars, which made this year’s red carpet unpredictable yet exciting. Many thought the event was going to be a quiet affair due to the social distance measures, but the sense of joy that filled the air was as clear as day. Rihanna showed up last minute with ASAP Rocky and closed the red carpet with her stunning look. Some stars like Billie Eilish decided to pay homage to icons with her outfit.
