If there’s one thing that we know about the Met Gala, we know that looks will be served. The annual Met Gala is the perfect place to make a bold statement and be fearless with one’s fashion choices. Regardless of the theme, the stars always come prepared to dazzle the cameras and flashing lights.
This year’s theme, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, presented the opportunity and challenge for several attendees. While some may have (fashionably) faltered, others really went above and beyond. The very best-dressed celebrities stayed true to their own signature style while also giving their spin on the Met Gala’s theme.
Among some of the stars that absolutely stole the red carpet, Amanda Gorman completely dazzled in her royal blue gown by Vera Wang, finding inspiration from the Statue of Liberty. Keke Palmer, who served as one of Vogue’s hosts for the evening, also totally owned her look and role.
These stars were unquestionably fierce and unapologetic with what they wore, and we loved every single pose and picture. Naturally, we’ve rounded up some of the very best-dressed celebrity looks throughout the evening. Want to see more?
