Who is best dressed?

The biggest night in fashion is here! You know what I’m talking about: Met Gala fashionAfter a year-long hiatus, the Met Gala is officially back in 2021. This year’s Gala will be split up into two events, the first of which’s theme is “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” inspired by The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s next costume exhibition. Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton said in a statement American fashion is “undergoing a renaissance, with young American designers at the vanguard of discussions around diversity, inclusion, sustainability and conscious creativity.”

If you’re thinking September feels a little strange to be having the Met Gala, you aren’t wrong. It’s usually the first Monday in May. But the pandemic switched things around and we get a gala during fashion week. Yes, there’s a lot of style right now! Let’s get to it, shall we? Here are the best looks of the night — who is your best dressed?
