Stars are arriving on the steps of New York’s, a highly anticipated event following a year of lockdowns and cancellations due to the pandemic. Dressing to the theme of “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” some of Hollywood’s biggest names have donned extravagant, bold and flashy outfits as they arrive for the charity event, which is organized by Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour.
Vogue is sharing a livestream of the event, co-hosted by actor and recording artist Keke Palmer and actor, writer and director Ilana Glazer. Palmer and Glazer are greeting guests on the grand steps of the Met and providing commentary on the many unique ensembles. Here are some of those standout looks.
New York Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney’s outfit gave a nod to the Equal Rights Amendment, a proposed amendment to the US Constitution asserting that someone’s legal rights shouldn’t be determined by their sex.
Actor Timothée Chalamet, one of this year’s Met Gala co-chairs, showed up in a comfy-looking white ensemble featuring a satin tuxedo jacket, sweatpants and beige high-top Converse shoes.
Another event co-chair, poet Amanda Gorman, arrived in a dazzling blue dress and matching strappy heels.
Singer-songwriter Billie Eilish, yet another co-chair, looked stunning in a flowy, Marilyn Monroe-esque Oscar de la Renta dress with a massive train.
Rounding out the list of this year’s co-chairs, tennis star Naomi Osaka arrived in an ensemble featuring an array of fun colors, textures and cuts.
Actor Dan Levy flaunted an eye-catching, puffy sleeve top with matching pants and studded black boots.
Singer-songwriter Leon Bridges paid homage to the American south with a blue fringe look and cowboy hat.
Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams graced the red (white, actually) carpet in a black dress with a long, sequined train and a partial cage hoop skirt.
