HIGHLIGHTS OF MET GALA 2021
Met Gala was highly awaited this year as we all missed it in 2020. Like every time, this year’s Met Gala was also filled with some really bizarre and some really controversial outfits. From Kim Kardashian West’s all-black outfit to Lil Nas X’s three-piece-strip-down, every single outfit gave us something to talk about. But today, we will talk about the highlights of this year’s Met Gala.
Kim Kardashian West
Kim Kardashian West appeared in an all-black outfit, from head to toe. This is not the first time that she wore something like this. Earlier that week, she wore an all-black outfit for the first time and caused a stir on social media. After her first appearance, people assumed that she got back with her ex-husband, Kanye West.
In the last Met Gala, in 2019, she talked about how she broke into tears after the event because of all the stress and insecurities. Ever since her first Met Gala appearance in 2013, she has always been a target of the online trolls. It happened this time too. This look was certainly interesting and gave humorists a great opportunity to get creative with their trolls.
Billie Eilish brought back the old Hollywood back to life with her Met Gala look. Her Oscar De La Renta ballgown was a great example of classic glamour. Billie Eilish is a vegan and animal rights activist. And the only reason why she chose to wear this gown by Oscar De La Renta because the brand promised her to stop using full in all their products. She said and we quote, “I am so beyond thrilled [to] … have made a change that not only makes an impact for the greater good for animals but also for our planet and the environment.”
This decision was very thoughtful and inspiring on Billie’s part and we hope to see other celebrities take some inspiration from her.
Congresswoman AOC’s “TAX THE RICH” was very much in controversy. People had mixed feelings about the message that she “wanted” to convey. Many talked about how AOC’s Tax The Rich gown for the $35,000-a-ticket Met Gala was a complicated Preposition.
However, she wasn’t the only one with a slogan written on her dress. Cara Delevingne could also be seen with “PEG THE PATRIARCHY” printed across her dress.
Lil Nas X
Lil Nas X made his first appearance at Met Gala and he definitely didn’t disappoint his fans. He made an entrance in all gold regal velvet cape by Versace which he threw off only to reveal a golden reflective armor underneath for his second look.
To reveal his final look, he unclasped the golden armor and publicized his crystal studded catsuit, which by the way, he completely rocked.
Lil Nas X explained the media that all these looks were his representation of “coming out of the shell” over the year.
Frank Ocean appeared on the red carpet with a mechanical baby in his arm. This baby was far from cute and many even called it creepy as it moved its head on its own accord, meeting eyes with the photographers in a quite shady manner.
This robotic baby even had a name; Frank addressed him as Cody and its face and skin was colored in lime color, matching its “father” Frank Ocean’s hair.
