Met Gala 2021: Naomi Osaka, Billie Eilish And Others Leave Us Speechless With Their Style


This time, Met Gala had guests celebrating the American spirit and bring about their interpretations. The theme was 'In America: A Lexicon of Fashion' and while a number of celebrities like Billie Eilish took inspiration from the old Hollywood glamour, the others including Michaela Cole exuded sporty side. However, these weren't just the two broad categories on how celebrities paid a tribute to America, they also showed artistic touch and some like Kim Kardashian gave us such winning looks that we were kept guessing about the inspiration. The main host of the show, Anna Wintour wore the Dominican-American designer Oscar de la Renta's brand gown that was floral and ruffled - the elements the designer became famous for popularising. But let's talk about what other celebrities wore that had the attention of the social media.

Naomi Osaka's American Champion Dress

The former US Open Champion, Naomi Osaka had the internet talking after putting her mental health over a Grand Slam championship. She started a brand-new conversation centered on press conferences post the matches but Naomi Osaka didn't only send waves in tennis but also left everyone awestruck with her fashion at Met Gala. Her statement attire was a collaboration between her, her sister Mari Osaka, and Nicolas Ghesquiere. It was a Louis Vuitton dress that she sported and it was a halter silk dress splashed in the shade of blue and with a red bow belt. Naomi also paired her ensemble with ruffled black shrug and ankle-length boots. She accessorised her look with dainty rings and the makeup was highlighted by pink and red tones - particularly the red eye shadow we are predicting might trend. The loop and wing-inspired hairdo was unique too. Well, done, Naomi Osaka and kudos to stylist Karla Welch.

Jennifer Lopez's Cowboy Glam Look

Jennifer Lopez brought two different elements in her look and made it work like wonders too. Well, she wore a cowboy hat and glamorous gown - both exuding the spirit of America. She wore a custom Ralph Lauren embroidered long western dress and faux fur shearling cape. Her brown-hued gown involved 15 specialised embroiders and over 12 days of work. The gown was also accentuated by more than 25,000 design elements. Jennifer Lopez, who has been slaying it at Venice Film Festival and VMAs, made a strong case for jewellery with heavy silver and leather and brass neckpieces and complementing bracelets. She also wore a pair of sleek danglers and her makeup was enhanced by pink lip shade and purple eye shadow. Jennifer Lopez completed her look with a long blonde ponytail. Jlo is definitely on a slaying spree. She was also styled by Rob Zangardi.

Megan Rapinoe's Classic American Look

American soccer player, Megan Rapinoe was styled by Karla Welch and her look was absolutely so-American with the signature red and blue hues. She wore a plunging-neckline blue shirt that had star-shaped accents and she paired it with a structured jacket and high-waist pants. It was an eye-catching look and classic for a reason. She paired her attire with a pair of red boots that made her look so old-school American. The accessories were minimal with dainty earrings. The makeup was highlighted by glossy-pink lip shade, contoured cheekbones, and smokey kohl. The purple pompadour tresses rounded out her avatar. And her look did seem inspired by the late legendary singer, David Bowie.

Her makeup was marked by pink lip shade and blue eye shadow with kohl. She notched up her look with a pair of diamond studs and a diamond neckpiece. Gigi Hadid looked amazing.

Kristen Stewart's Edgy Look And Pinup Bangs

As for her attire, it came from Chanel - Kristen Stewart is the brand ambassador of the fashion house and she wore a detailed, textured, and embellished pink jacket with ruffled accents and paired it with a pair of humble white trousers. There was something so real yet old-school about Kristen Stewart's Met Gala 2021 look.

Dan Levy's David Wojnarowicz-Inspired Look

Schitt Creek's actor Dan Levy's outfit was certainly perceptive and certainly one of the best outfits of Met Gala 2021. The actor collaborated with Jonathan Anderson of Loewe and Dan Levy's ensemble featured two seminal works by artist and LGBTQ activist David Wojnarowicz. His attire was made on the lines of 'what a gay superhero might wear'. His polo-neck exaggerated sleeves top and trousers depicted two men kissing, from a 1984 artwork that reappropriated a homophobic cartoon to instead celebrate the same-sex love. The photos of Wojnarowicz and his friend surrounded the couple. The world maps on his attire indicated the arbitrary borders and divisions the queer community faced.

Dan Levy's rose and studs leather boots were equally attention-holding.

Kendall Jenner's Nude And Embellished Gown

Supermodel Kendall Jenner looked amazing in her nude and embellished gown. She also made a strong case for sheer outfits with her attire that was designed by Givenchy.

Timothée Chalamet's White Ensemble

Timothée Chalamet opted for a minimalist look. The actor was one of the co-chairs and he looked distinctive in his Haider Ackermann attire. He wore a satin tuxedo suit and typically street-style pants. His look was certainly a fusion of uptown and downtown America. There was a touch of regal and basics to his look. He wore a structured short blazer and teamed it with loose pants with cinched hem. The converse shoes (also white-hued) also added to street look. A simple look but the Dune actor nailed it!
