The day is here everyone! The 2021 Met Gala is officially underway and we’re already living for the looks.
The event is usually held in May, but had been rescheduled to mid-September due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It one of fashion’s biggest nights where stars dress up to the nines. A fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Instiute in New York, the Met Gala has been known to be fashion’s biggest night of the year.
The Gala is expected to take over social media with fans and fashion lovers awaiting to see what designers their faves will wear and who will rock the red carpet the hardest.
This year’s theme is “In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion” with co-chairs for the evening including Naomi Osaka, Amanda Gorman, and others. This year, guests will be tasked with their own interpretation of what American fashion looks like, and how it’s transcended over the years.
Hosting the live stream will be our favorite #BookedandBusy girl Keke Palmer, along with Ilana Glazer from the hit HBO comedy Broad City.
Palmer was one of the first celebrities to be spotted on the red carpet and she definitely did not come to disappoint. Keke Palmer is the Sergio Husdon Fall 2021 collection for the event — a sparkly golden dress with a sleek, sexy exposed back. Palmer tied the look together with a stunning afro. While hosting, she said the look was inspired by Diana Ross.
Sergio Robinson — who also designed Michelle Obama’s iconic monochromatic inauguration look back in November head-to-toe in his Fall 2020 collection — was recently described as “One of America’s Establishing Designers” in Forbes. Palmer’s look was the final RTW look from Hudson’s recent show.
