The Reason the outfit was all white according to Ackermann was to give a good feeling for everyone watching, “I wanted to keep everything in white—a calm expression of hope and light.”

Billie Eilish


Billie Ellish wore a stunning Oscar de la Renta dress inspired by Marilyn Monroe on the carpet at the 2021 Met Gala. According to a Vogue Article written on September 16th, British Vogue’s style director, Dena Giannini siad “She (Billie) had always dreamed of wearing a proper ball gown—particularly something corseted, thanks to her love of Barbies growing up—but she thought that it might be in an acid green colorway or something along those lines. After her British Vogue cover, though, her style began to evolve. After reviewing about a million images together, she and I decided that it had to be Oscar de la Renta for the Met gala. I called [creative directors] Laura [Kim] and Fernando [Garcia], and within 10 minutes, we’d agreed to collaborate together.”

Kendell Jenner

Kendell Jenner wore a sheer crystal embellished Givenchy gown over a corset bodysuit. She completed the look with a sparkling high-neck choker and retro updo.  Some people say that this look was similar to her 2029 Met Gala look. In the 2019 Met Gala she wore a crystal embellished naked dress and in the 2021 Met Gala she did the same. stated this year’s dress was an apparent homage to the iconic Givenchy gown Audrey Hepburn wore in the pivotal ball scene in My Fair Lady. Before Kendell appeared on the red carpet she posted on Instagram a clip from the iconic film and a black-and-white photo of Hepburn wearing the crystal-embellished dress. Kendall has been dating NBA star Devin Booker since Valentine’s Day. It was thought that they would make their big debut on the red carpet, but instead she was alone. This dress was definitely one of the prettiest ones of the night. 

Kim Kardashian West

Kim Kardashian West wore a latex Mugler dress designed by Balenciaga. No one knows exactly why she chose to wear this. The big theory is that she was paying tribute to her ex-husband Kanye West’s new album “Donda.” The album cover is completely black and Kanye had also shown up completely covered in black that night. Another question that was raised is why she completely covered her face. Maybe her face being covered was a solution to not wearing a mask or maybe it had nothing to do with that at all. Kim did in fact wear a full face of make-up under the face cover.  Vogue stated that she also wore a ten thousand dollar seventy five inch ponytail. Some people will say they loved it, some say they liked it, others are in the middle, but most just say they’re confused or that it’s terrible. There have been many memes made about her outfit like photoshopped pictures of her as a dementor from Harry Potter. This is probably one of the most controversial outfits ever seen at the Met Gala.
