The best outfits from the Met Gala 2021

The best outfits from the red carpet | Met Ball 2021

Like most events the Met Gala was postponed this year due to the pandemic, but it's back and bang in the middle of fashion week... the stars are out to show their interpretations for this years theme '“American Independence”.

From jewelled outfits, wild headpieces, political statements and a nod to classic Americana. We've compiled Burnt Soul best outfits from the Met Gala 2021.

The radicals in red

It's not always often stars will wear red on the red carpet, but we've been treated this year to a sea of ruby's, crimsons, scarlets and merlots. Sports chíc has been present at his years Gala, to which we must include soccer star (football to us brits) Megan Rapinoe's 'In Gay We trust' clutch, which is perfect.

Founder of Pyer Moss, Kerby Jean Raymon who's collection fuses the personal & political, (vest is made of kevlar) proved that why have models when you look just as good in your own designs.

Plus size model Paloma Elsesser oozed utter Hollywood Americana timeless style (featuring a very good chevron - you know we love a good chevron here!) in quintessential American designer Zac Posen.

Shine bright like a diamond

It would be unheard of for the Met Gala stars not arrive without some jewels, this year they didn't disappoint. From Kendall Jenners breathtaking bejewelled gown by Givenchy inspired by Audrey Hepburn to Precious Lee's sharp shouldered jewelled (and fringed) suit dress really wow'd us.

From sea to shining sea, Barbie Ferreira's nod to old Hollywood glamour dripping with pearls was a standout moment on the carpet.

Proving that less can be more, Zoë Kravtiz stunned in Saint Laurent and Timothée Chalamet kept it cool in Haider Ackermann, but kept his own converse (comfort is key).

A western extravaganza

It wouldn't be an American theme without a bit of western style, and these lot really brought their A-game. From Maluma to Helen Lasichanh & Pharell in matching leather works to Ben Platt vintage style baby blue two piece, it was enough to make our Dolly proud!

It would also be outrageous not to include the woman of the moment, our latina legend... Jlo. She really rev'd up the theme this year in a full brown Ralph Lauren gown, who knew a full brown get up would work!? Either way we're here for it.

Bright, bold and beautiful

We love sparkles, but we LOVE colour, these celebs really exceeded in bringing bold, bright colour to this years carpet. Serena pulled out all the stops, that's right a lace sequinned catsuit... thank you Gucci.

Ciara celebrated her love for her football star husband in a custom Dundas and Eva Chen shone in a full rainbow gown.

A firm fashion fave Dan Levy wowed in Loewe. Working in collaboration with Loewe's Jonathan Anderson, they were inspired by American artist David Wojunarowicz. Creating a look that celebrated "the resilience and the love and they joy" of the LGBT+ community.

Let's not forget our Brit ladies, Michaela Coel completely nailing it in a bold blue sequin catsuit (wouldn't expect anything less from Balenciaga) and our super star Emma Raducanu perfectly printed in Chanel. Bravo ladies.

All that glitters is gold

Lil Nas X making his debut to the Gala, safe to safe he is serving us solid gold gorgeousness. if anything bringing us Billy Porter's 2019 entrance energy, he is fearless in his style and whatever he wears. He wears it well.

Drag Race season 13 winner Symone gave us full no to 90's RuPaul glamazon vibes in a gold beaded / fringed column dress by Moschino.

Activist/model Quannah really understood the category of American representation highlighting her indigenous ancestry (which we want to see more of on the red carpet). Also in Dundas, Mary J Blige shimmered in a full beaded plunging neckline, her style is timeless but always on point.
