after being delayed for over a year the met gala has finally returned, but unfortunately, it wasn't great. the 2021 met gala's theme was "in america: a lexicon of fashion" and many of the celebrity attendees from kendall jenner to addison rae completed failed to impress, either dressing totally off-theme or not bothering to try at all. in today's video we examine the potential of the 2021 met gala and take a look at its many failures and rare successes.

    I'm actually very disappointed that none of the women were inspired by Katharine Hepburn. She is a recognized american fashion icon that popularized pants for women and therefore heavily influenced american womens' fashion. I would love to have seen one of the women in a high fashion suit.

    Maybe just Interview the designers, not the bubble heads draped in their designs. Very few of the younger celebs can explain what they are wearing, partly as they don’t design or even have any process of the interpretation. The Mat has become a fake as some of the, “fakey” celebs. AOC dress is droll and message didn’t jibe. They show up, are dressed and walk, that’s enough to expect of them.

    Unrelated to the met gala but related to Kendall Jenner's dress: does anyone else think it would look way better if there was a layer of opaque navy blue fabric under the transparent crystal layer? I feel like it'd be like looking at a beautiful night sky full of stars.
    Edit: I just realized that if someone did my idea with multiple colors of crystals instead of just white ones the dress would look a little like fireworks on the 4th of July, and I feel a bit disappointed that nobody went that route for the met gala.

    My absolute favorites are Maisie and Emily. On the theme, original, and gorgeous look overall. The American Football ref. dress was spot on and it's a lovely thought she had behind it too. However, I just can't stand that green colour. As for the virtue signalling outfits, well.. it was pathetic attempt which failed big time. Delavigne, for example, could've paid an homage to Amelia Earhart instead of that cheap "peg the patriarchy" stamped on that little dull top. But what am I thinking? Probably she doesn't even know who she is. Oh well.

    Actually, as far as I know, the inspiration of Billie's dress actually was Marilyn Monroe and not holiday Barbie. (I'm not quite sure how you meant it)
    So the video of Billie preparing for the MET Gala mentioned Marilyn as a big inspiration and it was supposed to capture the "Old Hollywood Vibe" as the designers said.

    This is a fun video but I felt in some parts you were missing the point of fashion. Not every detail and cut and fabric is going to suit everyone. The attendees are entitled to mimic looks from the past while choosing cuts that flattering to them at the cost of seeming less easily recognizable to you.

    Because we didn't get a picture of Rosé and Kristen Stewart. That's why..or Rosé and Billy eyelids. American fashion has always been a copy of other countries. Even the cowboy look was stolen from the vaqueros which were Mexicans.. only real American fashion is native fashion. Pilgrims were wearing what was wear in their native country you know.. lol we have the jeans and that's it.. btw the fabric to make the jeans Denim was already used in France lol and pants were already used so idk

    The Met Gala used to be about fashion and now this makes it a joke. There were so many there who just should have gotten a NOPE. It just shows that a few had class and a brain, while others are tone deaf, trashy, and brainless.

      its been like this every single year. the met gala has only gained a ton of mainstream attention from social media , as mentioned in the video. the met gala has gotten a lot more extravagant looks in only like the past 5 years as it has gained more relevancy, where if you look into past years, the looks from the early 2000's or the 90's are what people would call "bland" or "basic" now, because that their expectations are so high over a standard that some mainstream celebrities have set. so the event has never gone bland or boring, its the way its been forever at this point.

    Ciara was my favorite as it was homage but also high fashion with the colour and silhouette being stunning. Was so sad not to see the 1960s mad men style looks which were very American but era specific. Also like you mentioned people not going all out in haute couture annoyed me...it's the MET not a movie premier

    i think the reason a lot of people made it so unamerican is because people are ashamed of american history. can you imagine if somebody showed up looking like a pilgrim? the media would absolutely tear them apart and their reputation would be ruined. we’re being told to be ashamed of america when we ourselves didn’t commit any of the atrocities our ancestors did. our current generation is trying to make it better, but twitter and the media do everything they can to tear it down. it’s incredibly sad.

    Saying that "China" is less vague than "Americana" is also pretty racist. Chinese fashion has had thousands of years' worth of silhouettes and trends, not to mention a ton of regional differences. It's only w narrower theme if you have a narrow stereotype about China.

    I kind of wished they did a look based on lady Columbia, before Uncle Sam there was lady Columbia who was the representative of America and it’s “goddess”, during the colony’s days and the push for independence they used Columbia as a figure head, and when the civil war was happening, on the battlefield it Is said that they would call on Columbia’s name as a battle cry.
    I believe there is a statue of her on top of the White House.

    No one is going to tell the lift a globalist In Crowd that they look stupid in the choice of wardrobe. Do you want to wear to the gala.
    Grabbing attention is not the same as looking good.
    Hollywood lifty In Crowd things that it is better to grab attention than to actually have substance show their attitude transferred onto their choice of clothes.
    .
    The guy wearing all gold metal suit and then turning his head and looking back head over shoulders look was ridiculous. The guy wearing a suit of the planet with a side theme of a clown suit... that was also a bust.
    The Kardashian Taliban Couture, is also a bust.
    The Billie eilish tomboy trying to go for the Marilyn Monroe look was a bust.
    Halle Berry with the bob cut and the color dress against her skin was all the way wrong and people actually let her leave the house like that.
    All these looks are attention getters but they are themselves unimpressive boring and predictable.

    Which is true?
    A. My natural eye color is the same as 6’1” blonde model Jade Parfitt’s natural eye color and Megan Fox was not wearing underwear under her red beaded Dundas dress at the Met Gala.
    B. My natural eye color is much darker than 6’1” blonde model Jade Parfitt’s natural eye color and Megan Fox was wearing a thong under her red beaded Dundas dress at the Met Gala.
    Hint: 6’1” blonde model Jade Parfitt has light blue eyes. 6’1” blonde runway model Jade Parfitt is a natural blonde and has very pale skin which always burns and never tans. Just because I have very dark hair and olive skin does not mean I can’t have the same eye color as 6’1” blonde model Jade Parfitt. I promise I will only accept the fact that Megan Fox was not wearing underwear under her red beaded Dundas dress at the Met Gala if my natural eye color is the same as 6’1” blonde model Jade Parfitt’s natural eye color. I promise I will only accept the fact that my natural eye color is much darker than 6’1” blonde runway model Jade Parfitt’s natural eye color if Megan Fox was wearing a thong under her red beaded Dundas dress at the Met Gala. 👠🎭🎨
