Lupita Nyong’o in denim Versace at the Met Gala: gorgeous & architectural?

Celebrity Departures for the Met Costume Gala from The Mark Hotel

Lupita Nyong’o was one of my favorite looks of the 2021 Met Gala. She wore a custom Versace made mostly of that most American of fabrics, denim. Her hair was a work of art all on its own, based on the artwork of Lorna Simpson. In motion, Lupita was impossibly beautiful. She’s stunning in still photos too! The architecture of her hair and the cut of the dress was perfect.

Lil Nas X also wore Versace – he actually did three outfits on the carpet. He arrived in the cape, then he removed the cape to reveal the gold metal suit, then took that off to reveal the catsuit. He’s incredible.

Zoey Deutch in Versace. Kind of boring? I don’t understand why so many people just went for a boring dress by a European designer when the theme was “American lexicon.”

Maluma wore Versace and walked the carpet with Donatella Versace. Maluma could absolutely get it, even in this bonkers red leather suit.

    Thanks you Lupita for sticking to the theme, a great nod to Britney iconic denim dress.

      Definitely one of the best of the night. She looked effortless and her make-up is perfection. One of the few women who owned their look and owned the red carpet. I realize that many in attendence are not used to the red carpet, but Lupita puts even the seasoned professional models to shame.

    Lupita is always glorious and this is just right for theme and it’s not wearing her at all

    I think Versace is my favorite of the night overall, and Lupita’s look was definitely one of my favorites of the night.

    I loved Lil Nas X – that to me was a very Met Gala moment, “here is my look, oh wait, let me take this off, here is my other look, oh wait, here’s another one!” Epic.

    I think Zoey Dutch was supposed to be inspired by Cher. The hair and all kinda reminds me of her. Maybe I’m wrong.

    I am such a fan of Lupita Nyong’o, she is beautiful and so talented. Her look reminded me of, like, marie antoinette. Her hair was spectacular. The whole look is just gorgeous

    Does Lupita ever look bad? No, the answer is no……she always looks amazing!

    We can always rely on Lupita to stick to the theme and do it beautifully. She was definitely one of the best dressed last night.

  8. Chaine says:

    Lupita looks fabulous. Amazing dress—finally a way to make denim glamorous!

    Lupita, where have you been? She frigging nailed it and a shout-out to Lil Nas X. He’s enjoying the hell out of fashion. Yes to that.

  10. Renee says:

    Ayesha looked gorgeous…as did Stephy. I love them so much.

  11. Bren says:

    It’s nice to see Steph and Ayesha Curry there because this event is usually during basketball season.

  12. Athena says:

    She nailed it

  13. Margot says:

    Lupita’s sculptural hair is incredible!

    I have not seen Lupita wear a bad outfit yet. She really has good wardrobe staff.
