The Best Looks from the 2021 Met Gala

by Mia Grunburg

Custom Versace, Balenciaga, Givenchy, and Oscar de la Renta dazzled the iconic steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on September 13th. The Met Gala has always been by far my favorite red carpet event, as it is arguably the most exclusive, star-studded night of the year. Individual seats cost upwards of $30,000, and purchasing a table costs around $200,000. Even if you have the means to attend, there is no guarantee you even can: invitees are hand selected by Vogue’s Anna Wintour. Such a prestigious night deserves the most exquisite outfits, and this year’s attendees got the message loud and clear. The theme of the night this year was In America: A Lexicon of Fashion. The stars took the patriotic theme and ran with it, though some executed better than others. Here are my top 5 best looks from the ladies at Met Gala 2021.
