Biggest fashion moments from Emma Raducanu to Billie Eilish

Watch: Stars channel the weird and wonderful for Americana-inspired Met Gala

The Met Gala 2021 was always going to be a headline-hitting affair. 

Celebrities and their stylists pulled out all the stops to dress up for the Met Gala 2021 after last year’s event was cancelled because of the pandemic. 

Hosted by co-chairs Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka, the biggest event on the fashion circuit’s calendar also featured red carpet regulars including Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and J Lo in addition to some Met Gala newcomers, US Open 2021 winner Emma Raducanu, rapper Lil Nas and the late Kobe Bryant’s daughter Natalia. 

There were some notable absentees. Nicki Minaj, who was not allowed to attend the event, had already announced that she would not be there due to vaccination requirements. Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Blake Lively, three of the most talked-about celebrities at the annual event, didn’t attend. Kylie Jenner, who is pregnant, declined to attend. 

Those who did attend were certainly dressed to impress. Kim Kardashian’s all black look that covered her entire body in black sparked a million memes. Billie Eilish was a sensation on the red carpet in a large, frothy gown that was inspired by Marilyn Monroe. Emma Raducanu was a vision at Chanel. 

Scroll for some of the most talked-about outfits of the evening.
