The Met Gala returned to uptown Manhattan in a whirlwind of glittering glam, Old Hollywood and this year, American-inspired fashion. Fashion's biggest night always produces a lineup of stellar looks, and this year was not one to disappoint. With the theme being, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, attendees came dressed in their best garb and ready to step-out after the event was delayed due to the pandemic. Lucky for you, we've listed some of our favorite looks below.

Yara Shahidi 

Paying a homage to Josephine Baker, Yara Shahidi wears a beautifully detailed custom Dior Couture crystal-embroidered gown designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri. Paired with a gold tulle cloak and elbow-length gloves, Yara is a sight to be seen. 

Simone Biles

Wearing AREA Couture x Athleta, Olympic Gold Medalist Simone Biles stunned in a sparkling custom gown. Athleta celebrated the event tonight by donating $50,000 to The Power of She Fund to empower women and girls. 

Kaia Gerber
