The Met Gala is the Oscar night of fashion industry which is conducted annually to raise funds for the benefit of Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. The Met Gala usually falls on first Monday of May but due to Covid-19 pandemic, the Gala night was postponed. The fashion night returns on the second Monday of September in 2021 as even more exclusive affair than before. The event welcomes stars, young creatives, and industry paragons.
This time, the Met Gala will be held in two stages, with a first reception in September 2021 and another on May 2, 2022.
However, the Met Gala took place on Monday in New York with a crowd of nearly 400 actors, athletes, and performers in attendance. This year’s theme for the annual fashion gala is “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” Below are the looks from the Met Gala 2021 red carpet.
