It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for, (and for a bit longer than usual): the 2021 Met Gala. It might not be the first Monday of May when fashion’s most elite typically convene (the Costume Institute’s annual affair was canceled last year and postponed to this September due to COVID-19), but better late than never, and we’re anxiously anticipating how our favorite designers, models, and Hollywood stars interpret this year’s theme, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, on the red carpet.
Now, the attendees will be required to wear masks once they’re inside and the event is set to be comparably smaller and more intimate than years past, but there will still be a step and repeat happening on the iconic Met steps. And, most assuredly, lots of amazing fashion and beauty moments. Anyone who is familiar with the event will know that attendees pull out all the stops when it comes to what they wear, and a matching, dare we say, balls-to-the-wall hair and makeup aesthetic is more important for this red carpet than any other. We’re anticipating a true feast for the eyes and will be snapshotting each and every head-turning beauty look in real time below. Keep scrolling!
