This year, the much-delayed Met Gala rolled out its red carpet for some of the biggest names in fashion and entertainment in New York on Monday evening.
Typically held on the first Monday of May, the event is held to mark the opening of the Met Costume Institute’s annual exhibition. The 2020 event was canceled and this year’s edition of the annual event was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The exhibit this year features two parts: “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” and “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.” The 2021 Gala is co-chaired by Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, and Naomi Osaka.
The event is widely regarded as among the most prominent and most exclusive social events in the world. See below for some of the looks from the Met Gala red carpet:
