2021 Met Gala Wrap-up

The 2021 Met Gala celebrating ''In America: A Lexicon of Fashion'' returned this year and it took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art yesterday evening(September 13th) in New York City. To see all of the gala looks, click HERE.

Billie Eilish ditched wearing a signature loose and over-sized looks for a OSCAR DE LA RENTA nude off-the-shoulder gown. This is a far departure from her usually look and unexpected. It's very 50's inspired but I am not 100% sold on the color.

ASAP Rocky wore a ERL SPRING 2022 printed, quilted cape and it looks like he is wrapped up to hop into bed. 

Allyson Felix looked beautiful wearing a FENDI FALL 2021 COUTURE feather, key-hole gown. The feather detail provided movement and the volume gave drama. 

Dan Levy never lets me down when it comes to his fashion choices. He LOEWE is not an American brand but he is killing it in a good way in this custom look from the fashion house. 

Timothee Chalamet who was one of the co-chairs, wore a HAIDER ACKERMANN suit which he looked good in. I am on the fence about the CONVERSE sneakers but he is making it work. 

Jennifer Lopez is always going to own every look that she rocks and she did just that in this custom RALPH LAUREN look. She was on theme as a western girl with a sexy twist and I am here for it. 

Gabrielle Union
looked beautiful wearing FALL 2021 COUTURE 3-D gown which was accessorized with MESSIKA jewelry and JIMMY CHOO sandals. This dress is definitely a work of art and Gabrielle brought it to life effortlessly. 

Kia Gerber wore a black strapless OSCAR DE LA RENTA gown and although she looks pretty, this is boring. She definitely needed a red lip and some sparkly jewelry. Kaia was channeling Bianca Jagger's 1981 gala look.

Anna Wintour wore a custom OSCAR DE LA RENTA FALL 2021 ruffle floral dress which she dressed up with a diamond necklace. The print is not easy on the eyes but I wish that it didn't have that ruffle collar. 

Mary J. Blige struck a pose in a gold sequin DUNDAS x REVOLVE thigh-high split dress. I am not feeling the neckline on this but she looks good. 

Megan Fox rocked a sexy, DUNDAS x REVOLVE red beaded dress, with a lace-up detail with a thigh-high split. This was the color of the night. 

Zoe Kravitz showed some skin in a SAINT LAURENT see-through beaded dress but I feel like I have seen this look before. 

Hailey Bieber wore a simple black strapless SAINT LAURENT column dress with a crystal embroidered v-neck. This doesn't excite for me. 

Anja Rubik wore a strapless light blue feather and black SAINT LAURENT crystal beaded see-through dress. Her beauty look was simple but pretty but I am not loving this dress at all. 

Maisie Williams always wears weird, unique look and this custom REUBEN SELBY ensemble is right up her style alley. I'm not loving this along with those chunky shoes but again, this suits her.

Kate Hudson looked gorgeous wearing a custom MICHAEL KORS COLLECTION SPRING 2022 ensemble with GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI sandals. 

Camila Cabello wore a MICHAEL KORS COLLECTION purple sequin dress & boa which is similar to look from the designer's FALL 2019 collection. This would have been perfect for her at the VMA's but I prefer the design of the dress on the runway. That cutout is not working. 

Amanda Gorman was one of the co-chairs and she wore a custom VERA WANG strapless, crystal beaded layered dress. Love the color, her makeup and accessories but the dress has too much of a prom vibe though. 

Emily Ratajkowski wore a sexy VERA WANG red lace gown with matching gloves. She looked pretty but I think the hair should have been in an up-do. 

Sophia Roe looked beautiful a grey floral metallic, cape gown by HALSTON. The chef was paying homage to the late icon Donna Summer and I have to say, the execution was perfect.

Mindy Kaling wore a TORY BURCH belted high low hem dress that looks more store brought than custom. She usually slays but I am not feeling this. 

Lili Reinhart wore a pink strapless, floral appliqu├ęs dress by CHRISTIAN SIRIANO but it looks very much like the dress that Irina Shayk is wearing by Moschino.

Kendall Jenner wore a GIVENCHY sheer beaded gown with a nude bodysuit underneath for coverage. She looked good but this is giving me deja vu. 

Natalia Bryant made her first appearance looking beautiful in a CONNER IVES FALL 2021 colorful bubble dress with a train in the back. The shape of the dress is weird but she worked this look.

Iman definitely came through in a show stopping look by HARRIS REED. I love everything about this from head to toe. The head piece and the whole design was expertly done. FRED LEIGHTON & KWIAT jewelry finished up her look.

Yara Shahidi looked elegantly beautiful channeling ''Josephine Baker'' in this custom look by CHRISTIAN DIOR. 

Cara Delevingne also made a political statement wearing a custom CHRISTIAN DIOR ensemble with the words ''Peg the Patriarchy'' on the bodice. This doesn't have impact like most of her looks has had for this gala but I agree with her statement. 

Rachel Zegler wore a CHRISTIAN DIOR COUTURE SPRING 2021 COUTURE printed, pleated gown and although I don't like it, the head styling was on point. 

Naomi Osaka is one of the co-chairs this year and a brand ambassador for LOUIS VUITTON so I knew she was wearing a look from the fashion house. LV pieces are difficult and hard to wear. This has drama & edge but I'm not loving it. Kudos to her for rocking a challenging look like this.

Rosalia wore a RICK OWENS red leather fringe coat dress with a train, leather gloves and platform boots. With this exception of the boots, I actually like this. 

Kid Cudi wore a custom LOUIS VUITTON SPRING 2022 ensemble and I like that he steps outside of the fashion box. I'm not loving the look but it works for him which is what matters. 

Lorde wore a custom look by BODE and stylist Karla Welch said this was an ''ode to the arts & craft of America'' and indeed it was. I am not sold on the silhouette of the dress but the details and the headpiece has impact. 

Karlie Kloss was a walking red rose wearing a ruffle CAROLINA HERRERA mini dress with a dramatic train in the back. Love the color but I feel like she needed a simpler clutch and ankle strap heels. 

Emily Blunt is wearing a custom MIU MIU look. I just dislike the white panel over the bust. I kinda wish this was just one color. Click HERE to see the inspiration behind her look. 

Paloma Elsesser was flawlessly beautiful in a red gown by ZAC POSEN. I just don't like she sheer nude panel on the arm or the bust.

Serena Williams
wore a custom GUCCI look but her color-block feather cape is the star here. 

Sienna Miller made a return to the carpet wearing a GUCCI beaded, cutout dress with a fur coat. It's another Hollywood glam look but I am not feeling the color on her.  

Jennifer Hudson wore a AZ FACTORY red crepe and satin gown with the matching satin cape. Love the color but I kinda wish this was sleeveless. GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI sandals finished up her look.

Alicia Keys went the somewhat bridal route wearing AZ FACTORY. She looks pretty but I wish that we couldn't see her cami underneath. 

Jordan Alexander wore a custom CHRISTOPHER JOHN ROGERS gown. I usually like his pieces but this is a no for me but I like the color combo and her face is flawless. 

Megan Thee Stallion looked beautiful wearing a custom COACH look and accessories. But this is very prom like. 

Saweetie wore a custom CHRISTIAN COWAN crystal embellished, one-shoulder cutout dress with a flowing cape in the back. For me, this is something that we tend to see her in on a regular basis. 

Barbie Ferreira looked divine wearing a custom JONATHAN SIMKHAI look. Purple eye-shadow provided an edgy pop of color to her look while the beaded fringe provided movement.

Maria Sharapova wore a GABRIELA HEARST SPRING 2022 yellow, pleated sleeve dress which was accessorized with a statement necklace. Thankfully she didn't chose the runway's color but I am not feeling this. 

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made in statement wearing a BROTHER VELLIES off-the-shoulder gown that said ''Tax the Rich'' in red in the back. Her gown is very bridal but I agree with her statement.

Precious Lee wore a custom AREA fringe, structured coat dress and she looked beautiful. But this look very ill-fitting on the bust. 

Simone Biles wore a AREA custom look accessorized with FRED LEIGHTON jewelry and GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI sandals. This looks so overwhelming on her.
