The annual event for celebrating American fashion popularly known as Met Gala, took place yesterday, 13th September at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan, New York.
And as usual, the occasion was graced with an array of fashion styles worn by celebrities like Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Whoopi Goldberg, Lil Nas X, Channing Tatum, etc.
This year’s Gala was themed American Independence and it showed in every style that was on display at the Met.
As per Vogue, the organisers, guests didn’t have to wear a piece from a homegrown label, but their looks had to reflect America’s gusty, adventurous sartorial spirit.
That freedom allowed for a range of interpretations, making this year’s red carpet one of the most exciting and unpredictable to date. Some stars opted to pay homage to national icons.
Co-chair Billie Eilish embraced her inner starlet in an Oscar de la Renta gown modeled after Grace Kelly’s refined style Others relied on the art of surprise, like Lil’ Nas X, who shut down the red carpet by stripping off layers of ornate Versace to reveal a sparkling catsuit.
Kim Kardashian West, 40, mother and wife of Kanye West again stunned the audience with another standout or rather bizarre style. She wore an over-all black gown, from head to toe, wrapping herself in it like a cocoon.
At the other Met event, years ago, she wore a see-through gown with everything bare, as shown above.
