American rapper Megan Thee Stallion arrived at the Met Gala 2021 dressed as a movie starlet straight out of the 1950s. Megan gave fans a sneak peek of her Met Gala look as she stepped out of her hotel, The Mark, in New York City, reported E! News.
The rapper went for a full glam ensemble, as she donned an old Hollywood-inspired frilly dress. Megan appeared in a strapless light pink gown with a high-low tulle skirt designed by Coach. The dress featured beautiful embellishments throughout and a ruched sweetheart neckline.
The rapper matched her pale pink gown with long metallic pink nails and a mini white top handle bag. She rocked an exaggerated cat-eye and glossy over-lined light pink lip to complete her look.”We literally just got here, like 4 o’ clock in the morning,” Megan told E! News about her Met Gala journey so far. She added, “I just got back from London, from performing. And I just really wanted to give old Hollywood glam, and I feel like that’s what we’re doing.”As for the party inside? Megan promised to “hype the party up,” but stayed coy on who she was planning to hang out with. “You know how I am with my hot girl vibes,” she teased. “If they’re being boring, I’m gonna make them lit.”
Meanwhile, actor Timothee Chalamet, singer Billie Eilish and rapper Lil Nas X kicked off a sparkling, youth-inspired Met Gala red carpet on Monday celebrating the best of American fashion.
“Dune” star Chalamet, one of the four Gen Z co-chairs of the so-called Oscars of the East Coast, sported a white silk suit with black lapels and white high-top sneakers. Grammy-winner Eilish, 19, shed her trademark baggy clothes for a plunging Oscar de La Renta peach gown that she said was inspired by Marilyn Monroe. Lil Nas X, 22, the gay Black musician behind hit song “Old Town Road”, wowed with a gold suit of armor that he took off to reveal a crystal-inspired bodysuit.
Poet Amanda Gorman chose a blue Vera Wang gown and crystal laurel crown headpiece that she said was intended to make her look like a “reimagined statute of liberty.”
Chalamet, Gorman and Eilish, along with tennis player Naomi Osaka, are all under the age of 25, reflecting an event intended to highlight young designers and celebrities.
“What’s so exciting about this year is that we’re really focusing on the future of American fashion,” Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, who organizes the event, told “Good Morning America” ahead of the gala.
The invitation-only Met Gala is a fundraising benefit for New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and also marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibition which this year is titled “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”.
Osaka wore a Japanese-inspired blue-and-red gown with a dramatic headpiece, while “Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams chose a dramatic black outfit with an elaborately sculpted headdress she said was inspired by the “Matrix” films.
“Schitt’s Creek” actor Dan Levy opted for a bold, puff-sleeved creation featuring artwork on the front that showed two men kissing.
Many of the celebrities were first-timers at the Met Gala, including YouTuber Emma Chamberlain, “Black-ish” TV star Yara Shahidi, and Brooklyn Beckham, son of British soccer player David Beckham.
Last year’s Met Gala was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic, and Monday`s gathering was about a third smaller than usual with about 300 guests, with proof of vaccination required, though they did not wear masks while posing for their entrances.
