The Met Gala: From Simone Biles and Serena Williams to Steph Curry, athletes show out on the red carpet

The Met Gala, which typically happens on the first Monday in May, was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Which means it had been quite some time since we were afforded an opportunity to judge our favorite celebrities' outlandish outfits from the comfort of our sweatpants and couch. But on this Monday in September, stars reclaimed their spot on the iconic steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Billie Eilish's Glamorous 2021 Met Gala Look Was Inspired by Her Favorite Barbie Doll

"I've always wanted to do this," Eilish said of attending her first Met Gala. "I was just scared and didn't feel comfortable in my skin." The songstress, 19, made her debut at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala, and she did not disappoint. Eilish switched up her signature grunge-inspired style in a major way, arriving in a peach Oscar de la Renta corset ball gown with off-the-shoulder tulle details and a long train flowing behind her.

A Moment For Billie Eilish’s Other, Grace Kelly-Inspired Met Gala Gown

Billie Eilish and British Vogue’s style director Dena Giannini pored over “about a million images together” while plotting the star’s Met Gala 2021 looks. Among them? A picture of Hollywood icon Grace Kelly in the 1955 classic, To Catch a Thief, which ultimately inspired a second show-stopping Oscar de la Renta gown that the co-host changed into after she swept up the Met steps in a cloud of blush tulle.

The Surprising Amount Of Water Beyonce Drinks Every Day

Thanks to what we'll call Showergate, we've learned which celebrities are not about putting water on their bodies (via Vulture). But at least we know one queen who is all about putting water in her body. Yes, Beyoncé Knowles has made it clear as water that hydrating is an important part of her self-care routine, once telling British Vogue that water, exercise, and vitamins were her secrets for getting strong again after giving birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy.

Billie Eilish’s Oscar de la Renta Met Gala Gown Is an Ode to Marilyn Monroe

Billie Eilish’s viral British Vogue cover story paid homage to retro Hollywood sirens, and now she’s chosen to channel perhaps the most revered pinup of all at the 2021 Met gala: Marilyn Monroe. Eilish—a co-chair of the gala along with fellow Gen-Z superstars Timothée Chalamet, Naomi Osaka, and Amanda Gorman—floated onto the red carpet in a frothy black gown by Oscar de la Renta, inspired by the tulle dress Monroe wore to attend the Oscars in 1951. The theme of this year’s ball is “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” so Eilish turned to one of the biggest names in U.S. fashion to craft her ode to a woman as ingrained in American culture as stars and stripes.

Rihanna Stuns in Balenciaga at Met Gala, Obviously

In what was perhaps the least surprising turn of events last night, Rihanna arrived to the Met Gala fashionably late along with her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, clad in one of the evening’s most memorable looks. Marking the couple’s red-carpet debut, Rihanna wore an all-black ruffled Balenciaga overcoat and matching hat, while Rocky donned a colorful quilt-inspired look by ERL. The two were the last celebrities to arrive at the event, around 10 p.m., after considerable drama over when they would show up. This is not Rihanna’s first show-stopping Met Gala look, of course — who could forget her pope ensemble in 2018 or 2015’s omelette dress? But even when the singer didn’t make it to the Gala, like in 2019, she still ruled the conversation. Such is her power.
