Celebrities showcased almost every possible colour from the rainbow in their uniquely designed outfits at the Met Gala 2021.
After being previously cancelled due to the pandemic, the much-awaited annual fundraising gala conducted for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute took place in New York City, giving celebrities the chance to put their most fashionable foot forward.
Like every year at the gala, celebrities set the red carpet on fire with their quirky outfits, with designers playing around the theme “American Independence” to create out-of-the-box costumes.
While Dan Levy, Kendall Jenner, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez stunned their fans with their dazzling dresses, it was Kim Kardashian’s outfit by Balenciaga and Rapper Lil Nas X “Gold” ensemble that clearly stole the show for netizens.
Meme markers had a field day focusing on Kardashian’s all-black attire covering her from head to toe. But ASAP’s multicoloured quilt cloak and Lil Nax X’s golden cloaked-armour outfit equally grabbed the attention of netizens.
