The Met Gala 2021 took place last night. Few followed or understood the theme, American Independence -paying tribute to American Style, but that happens every year. While there were a few nods to red, white and blue, stars and stripes, denim, cowboys and classic American designers, most just took the opportunity to turn out in truly wonderful and weird fashions.

We’ve got the photos worth seeing from the Met Gala 2021 here and hundreds more on our Met Gala 2021 Pinterest Board

Regina King, Lupita Nyong’o and Debbie Harry were on theme with their denim “Americana” outfits

We noticed a few undeniable trends at last night’s event. One that was hard to miss were the popular silver beaded sheer gowns that were barely there (much like Dakota Jackson’s from the Venice Film Festival).

Zoey Kravitz,  Emily Blunt, Kendall Jenner and Imaan Hamman in sheer beaded gowns

And sheer floral gowns.

Sheer floral gowns worn by Lili Reinhart and Irina Shayk.

Designer Iris Van Herpen had a huge showing on the red carpet this year. Clad in her futuristic fashions were Gabrielle Union, Valentina Sampaio, Hailee Steinfeld, Tessa Thompson, Amanda Grimes and Winnie Harlow.

There were some toned tummies:

Cynthia Erivo, Hunter Schaefer and Kate Hudson bare their bellies

And some no tummies:

Eileen Gurr and Vanessa Bryant hide theirs

And some very sexy decolletage

Jennifer Lopez and Rita Ora

There were some who went big, beautiful and beaded:

Precious Lee and Barbie Ferreira

And some had a message:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wore a gown that read “tax the rich”
Cara Delvigne’s odd life-jacket-like top exclaimed ‘”Peg The Patriarchy”

A few went ballroom glam.

Jennifer Hudson and Normani

While several chose to go formal in classic black and white:

Taraji P Henson, Amandla Stenberg and MJ Rodriquez
Sharon Stone at the Met Gala
Kaia Gerber and Gigi Hadid
Erikah Baydu at the Met Gala (don’t ask, I don’t know)
Anok Yai and Timothée Chalamet

Some went for vibrant color

Tracee Ellis Ross and Amanda Gorman in blue-violet
Elle Emhoff and Paloma Elsesser in deep red
Symone, Laura Harrier and Vittoria Ceretti in glittery golds

While pastels were the color of choice for some.

Billie Eilish
Zoey Deutsch, Megan Thee Stallion and Taylor Hill

There were outfits that transformed on the red carpet.

Lil Nas X removed a cape to reveal gold armor and then under that, a beaded jumpsuit
Storm Reid removed her skirt to reveal hot pants, an American invention.

And some were so odd, they needed no transformation.

Kim Kardashian covered head to toe, literally, in Balenciaga
Frank Ocean brought a friend to match his hair
Kim Petras wore a horse head
Evan Mock went gimp-like
Dan Levy wearing God knows what

Of course, we couldn’t post ALL the pics, that’s why we put over 240 on our Pinterest board here.
