Was I disappointed that the majority of the celebrities underperformed? Yes. Was Zendaya obviously absent? Definitely. Did I recover after seeing the following stars stun at the MET Gala? Take a wild guess.
This year’s theme was, “In America: The Lexicon of Fashion.” I did not really know what to expect. In fact, I had no idea the MET GALA was happening while I was taking nap after eating a huge bowl of coconut rice. But I woke up with a frown and scrolled through Instagram just hoping to find a few looks that would blow me away. I did not intend to write a blog post, but after seeing the sad looks that 80% of the celebrities showed up with, I had to pay homage to those I thought showed up and showed out!
The Met Gala returned to New York after been shut down by the wildly hated global pandemic. Monday night was a night to remember as the vaccinated, negative covid tests, mask-wearing stars made their way to the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
These are the looks that made my best-dressed list (in no particular order, but Iman sure wears the golden crown).
Iman Abdulmajid– Dressed as a human sun. The Somali-American goddess is ravishing, radiantly glowing, and a sure show-stopper. I have a few other words, but if I give it all to Iman, the rest of the best-dressed list would be left with words like, “very nice.”
|Wearing Harris Reed and Dolce & Gabbana| Thank you for this look, Iman. David Bowie is sure looking down from heaven and proudly shinning his love upon you, always.
Emily Blunt– As the constellations. The British actress is bluntly giving me chills. Emily Blunt may be very quiet in “A Quiet Place,” but this look screams perfection. The only hyphenated word that comes to mind is vava-vom
|Wearing Miumiu| Keep being regal in white my dear.
Karlie Kloss – As the most beautiful red rose. I don’t know how she pulled this off, but I’m glad I am alive to see it.
|Wearing Carolina Herrera| Karlie, you are what I call a spice!
Billie Eilish – As a human barbie doll. I mean, common!! We have all been waiting for a day like this to come. The musician is so stunning, she stole my breath and just refused to give it back. You can keep it, honey, this look is breathing for me.
|Wearing Oscar De La Renta| There are not enough words to do this look justice, so I’ll end with “wow.”
Kendall Jenner – As a sparkling, glittering, shimmering diamond.
|Wearing Givenchy| A look Kendall Jenner can not pull off does not exist.
Megan Fox – As the Atarodo one of the Met Gala. I have given her my name and title just for one day. In fact, she can keep it. I have never seen her look fiercer than she did at the MET.
|Wearing Dunas World| It’s your world, Megan and we are all just borrowing it from you!
Timothee Chalamet – If you’re ever going to wear converse to the MET, you better be Timothee because he makes anything look fashionable.
|Wearing Rick Owens, Converse, and Haider Ackermann| A moment of silence for the only man who made my list.
Nikkie Tutorials – That’s how the beauTubers do it! The queen of makeup is as radiant as ever in this gorgeous dress and headpiece.
|Wearing a beautiful flower chiffon dress and a flower crown| Shine baby, shine!
Normani– As a dramatic canary because this look sings honey! Talk about a walk on the wild side.
|Wearing Maison Valentino| This look is the only drama I ever want to be a part of.
Gabriel Union– As an extraterrestrial element of something magnificent. She served and we ate this look and asked for more.
|Wearing Iris Vanherpen| Come on Gabriel Union, keep giving us life!!
Lili Reinhart– As a beautiful, poetic flower. I have such a soft spot for her and this look just made me love her even more.
|Wearing Csiriano| If you’re wondering where all the beautiful flowers are, just look at Lili Reinhart.
