2021 Met Gala — Here's the Best Dressed LGBTQ+ Celebrities
While red carpets are plentiful, the ones that can prove pivotal are few: there's the Cannes Film Festival red carpets, there's the Oscars red carpet, and there is the the Met Gala with its steps. After the 2020 event was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic, the Met Gala returned Monday night for an off-season rendition and brought out the celebs far and wide.
The theme for the affiliated exhibition is "In America; A Lexicon of Fashion." As a result, the red carpet had the theme of America, leading celebrities to interpret the idea as they saw fit.
Scroll on to see our favorite LGBTQ+ stars at the event.
