It’s fashion’s biggest night and the girls did not disappoint. Fashion heads were treated with American-inspired ‘fits for this year’s theme where celebs served up 70s realness, timeless Old Hollywood glam and a dash of EXTRA that we all love and appreciate in fashion.

 

Soak in looks from Yara Shahidi, Keke Palmer, Zoe Kravitz, Winnie Harlow and tons more inside…

The 2021 Met Gala was sprinkled with everything we didn’t know we needed for its “comeback” ball after canceling last year’s event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The gala was in celebration of Metropolitan Museum of Art’s newest exhibition, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” which opens to the public in the Anna Wintour Costume Center on September 18th. Before the official opening of the exhibit, celebs made their way to the carpet of the annual Met Gala to share their interpretation of the “American independence” theme.

“Grown-ish” starlet Yara Shahidi did NOT disappoint when she pulled up on the carpet. The 21-year-old actress executed her American theme interpretation with perfection as she paid homage to an iconic Black woman in America: American-born French icon Josephine Baker. How fitting.

The young activist floated up the stairs in a custom strapless Christian Dior gown that featured intricate beading. She topped her look off with a diamond headband placed delicately over cornrows that cascaded into brushed-out curls. The gloves and the train topped off her stunning look of the night.

Breathtaking.

Keke Palmer channels her inner Diana Ross to pay homage to the iconic singer for her first time attending (and hosting) the Met Gala. She rocked a sparkly floor-length Sergio Hudson gown. Her hair and makeup really pulled her look together to ooze 70s realness.

Not only did she slay the carpet, she also served as a co-host of VOGUE’s red carpet livestream where she interviewed celebs as they made their way down up the stairs to the event.

Bomb.

Come through fashion! Supermodel Winnie Harlow twirled on the carpet in an edgy Iris Van Herpen jumpsuit.

Zoe Kravitz bared it all on the carpet in a sheer crystal Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello slip dress. She rocked a silver thong underneath, exposing some butt cleavage for the masses.

Her rumored boo Channing Tatum was also in the mix, although they didn’t do the carpet together.

Actress Tessa Thompson served up Western vibes in Iris Van Herpen with the hat and boots to match. Love the dress. The hat & the boots…not so much.

Singer Erykah Badu went incognito in Thom Browne for an unforgettable look.

NBA baller and fashion lover Russell Westbrook dyed his hair with white Americana stars to top off his navy Ralph Lauren suit to attend his first Met Gala.

Hip Hop artist Kid Cudi brought street-style to the carpet in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton. He finished his look with a $1 million chain by KAWS x Ben Baller. Sheesh.

 

Oscar winning actress Regina King hit up the carpet alongside fashion designer Michael Kors, styling in shimmery navy and gold dress and matching coat.

Tony and Grammy-winner Cynthia Erivo sashayed down the carpet in a cream-colored Moschino gown and dripped in jewels by Roberto Coin.

Off-White & Louis Vuitton designer Virgil Abloh rocked an interesting Louis Vuitton ‘fit. Do we love it?

 

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg wowed in purple Valentino.

Dutch model Imaan Hammam looked dreamy in a vintage Atelier Versace gown with stars.

Tennis superstar Venus Williams looked like a goddess in a crimson Prabal Gurung gown paired with Swarovski jewelry.

Simple, yet sexy. Model Joan Smalls kept it sleek in Ralph Lauren.

Singer Kehlani wore Aliette, styled by Law Roach.

 

Actress Laura Harrier STUNNED in a glamorous custom Altuzarra gold lame gown that featured Turkish knit embroidery. She walked the carpet with designer Joseph Altuzarra.

 

 

Broadway starlet Audra McDonald was a breath of fresh air in Sergio Hudson.

Actress Amandla Stenberg showed off her quirky style in Thom Browne.

Model Precious Lee, who was invited by Instagram who had a table full of celebs, posed it up in a glittery dress by Area. SLAYED.

DJ D-Nice shared his experience following his first Met Gala gig.

Beauty influencer Jackie Aina brought the Black Barbie fashions.
