The Annual MET Gala is underway on Monday and this year the theme is America: The Lexicon of Fashion.
Celebrities like Ciara pictured below tried to capture the theme with an ode to American tradition and culture.
For example, Ciara is wearing Dundas, the top of her dress representing Football, and her hubby’s Seatle Sea-Hawks number 3.
According to Page Six Vogue’s glitzy gala is happening in mid-September rather than the first Monday in May, but celebrities and influencers alike are set to walk the hallowed steps and halls of the Met once more — provided they’re fully vaccinated and masked, that is.
“Each of the Met’s four co-hosts embodies the defining factor of American style: individualism,” Vogue shared in May, adding that the group has “developed a distinct visual language for their public personas, one that is informed by the legacy of iconic fashion made in the USA.”
Below are some looks that have been getting buzz for the night, a range of designers were represented including Prada, Gucci, and Versace.
Lil NasX wore Versace in layers, each layer revealed something new, see below:
