The Met Gala is back after a nearly one-and-a-half-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with our favorite celebrities walking down the red carpet looking their absolute best. The Met Gala 2021 is quickly becoming a night to remember, with celebrities bringing the theme ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’ to life. It is hosted this year by Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, and Naomi Osaka. While Hollywood’s A-listers and artists dazzled on the red carpet as usual, athletes were the unexpected show-stoppers this time. The Met Gala 2021 saw our favorite athletes, including Allyson Felix, Venus Williams, Simone Biles, and Emma Raducanu, acing their fashion game.

Tennis star Naomi Osaka arrived hand in hand with her boyfriend Cordae, who is also the co-chair of the Met Gala 2021. She wore a vibrant Louis Vuitton ruffled dress with a bright red Obi belt and bold makeup to pay homage to her Japanese and Haitian roots. Though the look was panned by many for being too strange and haphazard, it did contribute to the event’s multi-cultural spirit.
