A few of the many celebrities who attended the 2021 Met Gala

The Met Gala or Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute benefit is an annual fundraiser held in New York to raise money for the museum’s costume department. It is a highly exclusive, invite-only event with only a few hundred in attendance. As the largest fashion exhibition of the year, the Met Gala allows both celebrities and designers to showcase their creativity and artistic talent.

Each year the Met Gala creates a theme for guests to base their attire on. “American Independence” was the theme for the 2021 party, and it is safe to say that many stars went above and beyond to impress their audience.

19-year-old singer, Billie Eilish, stole the show with her breathtaking Marilyn Monroe-inspired gown by Oscar de la Renta.

 

Comedian Pete Davidson made his Met Gala debut with a posh look influenced by American designer, Thom Browne.

Kendall Jenner channeled her inner Audrey Hepburn in a stunning bedazzled Givenchy dress.

 

Although each attendee was dressed to the nines, several costumes fell short of the viewers’ favor.

TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio took a modern twist on Audrey Hepburn’s iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s outfit. Unfortunately, the large feathered hat that adorned D’Amelio’s head overshadowed what was an otherwise elegant look.

Although A$AP Rocky’s attire was worn at this weekend’s Met Gala, many agree he looks better suited for a night in on the couch rather than a fashion extravaganza.
