The Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted another amazing Met Gala. This year was smaller and more intimate because of the pandemic. The gala was in celebration of the Costume Institute’s newest exhibition, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”, with the theme as American independence. The event was co-chaired by singer Billie Eilish, tennis champ Naomi Osaka, actor Timothée Chalamet and poet Amanda Gorman, all of the Gen-Z era. The night was filled so many iconic looks.
Iman wore a Harris Reed custom made brocade jumpsuit, with a tiered feathered overskirt and headpiece, which reminded me of Pocahontas. This gave me a native american indian vibe.
Gabrielle Union wore an Iris Van Herpen dress with spheres and spheres and spheres cut and layered in size gradients from a translucent white liquid fabric, and of course there was an optical illusion twist as expected from designer Iris Van Herpen. And of course, Gabrielle gave me rich, intelligent aunty vibes.
Regina King is generally a stunner, so it was no surprise that she opted for this look. This Michael Kors pinstriped overcoat slash blazer lined with gold sequins paired with a pinstriped tube dress was amazing.
Yara Shahidi paid homage to Josephine Baker in a strapless intricately beaded Christian Dior gown, with a thin belt and a long train. She also had on elbow-length gloves, lined in matching beading, a diamond choker and a braided cap.
Tracee Ellis Ross was so amazing and electrifying in silky cobalt Balenciaga couture.
Kim Kardashian actually looked iconic and gave off a mannequin vibe in this Kanye West × Balenciaga look all masked up head and face fully covered up. And looking closely, one can see that she is actually wearing a tee shirt. I thought it was cool.
I think my fave was Gigi Hadid in a strapless Prada dress with a black tube lining, black sling backs and gloves. Her red hair is super amazing, worn in a retro inspired pony tail.
