It’s no surprise that this year’s Met Gala will be full of impeccable style – particularly as the lavish event falls in the midst of fashion month. Amid the pandemic, the Gala commenced last night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, as usual.
This year’s theme? An evening to celebrate the opening of the Costume Institute’s new exhibition, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” which opens on the 18th of September in the Anna Wintour Costume Center.
Celebrities embodied the American style theme in a variety of styles, whether elaborate, extravagant ensembles or more subtle references to Americana.
