‘The most favorite gala is back after two years! The gala happened in a more intimate setting due to the pandemic this year with the theme being “American Independence”. This year’s exhibit accompanying the event is 70% young American designers, most of whom have never even been invited to the gala. The guest list also featured Gen Z tastemakers, including the evening’s co-chairs Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, and Naomi Osaka. The curator of the Met’s Costume Institute, Andrew Bolton, told Vogue that he felt it was time to reexamine American identity through the lens of recent social justice movements.
Here are some of our favorite costumes from the gala from our beloved Yara Shahidi to everyones favorite Dan Levy! Men killed it this year, especially Pete Davidson, the Saturday Night Live comedian who arrived to the Gala for the first time in a black tunic dress by Thom Browne, which paid a special homage to his late father, Scott, a New York City firefighter, who died in service on September, 11, 2001. Loved the look.
