24 celebs who turned up the heat with their outfits at the 2021 met gala

The Met Gala is finally back on again after two and a half years since the last time it was held. While the show was held more intimately than the usual scale, Met Gala will be back to their usual schedule and size in 2022. Even so, this year’s Met Gala is not short of amazing ensembles and stunning fashion statements, and the theme for this year was ‘American independence.’

Several of the celebrities took the chance to explore vintage fashion with their own twists while others decided to focus on a certain aspect from their country’s extensive history and incorporate it into their clothes. Honorary Chairs of the evening are designer Tom Ford, Instagram’s Adam Mosseri, and Vogue’s Anna Wintour. Their co-chairs are actor Timothée Chalamet, poet Amanda Gorman, tennis star Naomi Osaka, and the youngest in history, Billie Eilish.

Billie Eilish shares she was inspired by holiday Barbie very much and has been exploring vintage, pinup theme in her previous interview to British Vogue. Her peach dress is a nod to old-school ball gown with low cut tulle corset that was customized by Oscar de la Renta.

Her dramatic, wrap up black gown was complimented with a statement diamond necklace that is actually a 267-carats of diamonds from Bulgari. Her boyfriend matched the look by wrapping himself up with a quilted blanket (before taking it off later to reveal the tuxedo underneath).

Gabrielle told E! News that this dress actually took “1400 manhours” to finish! Yes, the team had started working on it since April. She shares how it fits the theme this year, “It’s all about change. What’s needed in America, what’s needed in fashion, and with each step, this dress changes and you see different colors. You see different textures and that’s what it should be all about.”
