The Met Gala, fashion’s biggest night, couldn’t have come soon enough. After almost a year of virtual red carpets (if at all), this event, which honors the fashion industry like no other, was long-awaited. Every Met has its theme, and this year’s exhibit was: “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” Many guests interpreted the theme in different ways and gave it their perspective and flavor. After the event’s cancellation last year, we had many expectations for this year’s edition, which took place on Monday, September 13th, and, thankfully, our favorite stars didn’t disappoint. Here are some of the best-dressed celebrities on the red carpet of the 2021 Met Gala:

No one does Met Gala like Rihanna, and this year was no exception. The singer was fashionably late to the carpet, showing up in a couture black Balenciaga coatdress designed by the brand’s creative director Demna Gvasalia. Rihanna’s full-length, puffy coat featured a dramatic collar. The Fenty Beauty CEO paired the ensemble with a beanie hat, a crystal headpiece, and a glittering diamond necklace.
