Met Gala Report 2021

Met Gala Report 2021

The Met Gala is one of the biggest and most exciting fashion events of the year. This year’s theme was In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, it was in honour of the 75th anniversary of the Costume Institute, which is a yearlong 2-part exhibition featured in the Met gallery to display over 36000 costumes and honour American fashion.   

Celebrities at the Met Gala never fail to impress us with their takes on the theme and this year was no less, although there were some questionable outfits, the stars put on an eye catching and entertaining show for us to obsess over and analyze to our own taste.

Our top favourite print and design looks from this year are…

Naomi Osaka, the tennis Olympian showed off a co-designed Louis Vuitton dress that was designed by herself and her sister. The dress worn honoured her Japanese and Haitian background which was important for her to do. This print was made up of luxurious pinks, purple and blues while printed with koi fish and water prints. To fit the theme Naomi’s first thought was to pay homage to the immigrants which make up America and support the cultural differences which make America diverse.

Dan Levy, the actor did not fail to disappoint with his spectacular take on the theme to pay respects to the LGBT community through supporting art created by David Wojnarovicz who passed away in 1992. Levy’s look, designed by Lowes’s designer Jonathan Anderson, was a message of hope and powerful political message showing the strength and joy of the LGBT community.

The tennis stars really brought it this year; British tennis star Emma Raducanu who is the first qualifier to win the gram slam at the US open walked the red carpet to the Met Gala while wearing Chanel Resort 2022. Although in a simple monochromatic colour palette her look was anything but simple, with geometric and floral prints layered over fine line city architecture sketches, paired with classic Chanel styles pearl detailing to keep the two-piece co-ordinates sophisticated.

Lili Reinhart, the actress wore a beautiful baby pink dress with corset structure and a long train which was elegantly decorated with 3D applique florals. This dress was covered in the floral train with each flower representing all 50 states' official flower, signifying a unity of states in a theatrical eye-catching way. This inclusive design was designed by Christian Siriano, a project runway mentor.

Karlie Kloss's stunned in a sculptural red Carolina Herrera dress. Like many other Met Gala attendees, she chose to feature an important American designer in honor of this year's theme. With the sweeping trail, petal-like ruffles, and splendid jewels, Karlie looked like a true American Beauty.

On the other end of the spectrum was pop star Kim Petras, with one of the evening's most daring and unusual looks. Her long pony tail and prosthetic horse head gave a new meaning to the term "horse girl". While the entire look may not be for everyone, the strapless evening dress could stand alone, with its interesting photo-real floral and fruit print.
