Met Gala: The best weird and wonderful fashion as celebs return to red carpet

Tuesday 14th September 2021 11:00 BST

Marking a first for the annual affair, which returned after a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an array of TikTok stars, YouTubers and influencers turned up for the sartorial extravaganza at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The event delivered its usual mix of the weird and wonderful, as A-listers celebrated the theme of America: A Lexicon of Fashion.

YouTube vlogger Emma Chamberlain, 20, made an early entrance and ascended the famous Met stairs in a cut-out asymmetric Louis Vuitton gown, while TikTok star Addison Rae embodied old Hollywood glamour in a long red dress.

Meanwhile, US Vice President Kamala Harris' stepdaughter Ella Emhoff, 20, also made her Met Gala debut at the star-studded event in a sporty red ensemble with trainers by Stella McCartney for Adidas.

Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka, 23, wowed in a colourful gown by Louis Vuitton.

Other young stars gracing the exclusive event included Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon in a custom Moschino gown, US Open champ Emma Raducanu in Chanel, and the late Kobe Bryant's daughter, Natalia Bryant.

There were some Met Gala veterans to be noted, including reality star and businesswoman Kim Kardashian West - looking unrecognisable in a black-masked piece by Balenciaga, was which didn't fail to turn heads.

Accompanying her was a man wearing a blackout hoodie, initially thought to be her estranged husband Kanye West, but said later it was Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia.

Rihanna, one of the most anticipated Met Gala stars, arrived fashionably late in an oversized black coat dress, topped off with a beanie, and attended the event with rapper A$AP Rocky.
