2021 Met Gala: See the Celebrities Who Slayed & Ones Who Missed the Mark


It’s been two years since Hollywood’s finest gathered to raise money for the Met and walk the red carpet at the Met Gala.  So you had to know that the celebrities would bring it to the return of the gala with the 2021 theme being In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.

This year’s theme is to honor the 75th anniversary of the Met Costume Institute and is a celebration of modern American fashion.  Every celebrity interprets the theme in their own way.  Some went literal with red, white, and blue with stars, and others went way left.

Check out the celebrities that slayed and the ones that fell short at the 2021 Met Gala!
