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.
Steph & Ayesha Curry wore Versace. Ayesha looked great!
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.
