From Blackpink’s Rosé to Kim Kardashian, see all of the red carpet looks from the 2021 Met Gala here

The Met Gala is back! After a year-long hiatus (and a postponement), the fashion world’s Oscars is on and the celebrities are bringing their A-game.

This year’s theme, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”, is a celebration of the country’s diverse style, individualism and go-big-or-go-home ethos. “I really do believe that American fashion is undergoing a renaissance,” said Andrew Bolton, the Wendy Yu Curator in Charge of the Costume Institute. “I think young designers in particular are at the vanguard of discussions about diversity and inclusion, as well as sustainability and transparency, much more so than their European counterparts, maybe with the exception of the English designers.”

From the country’s love of denim, to political messaging on the red carpet, and unabashed extravagance, see how all the celebrities interpreted the theme of the 2021 Met Gala on the red carpet here.
