The fashion’s biggest night returned this year, honoring the creativity that fuels the fashion industry. The Met Gala coma back as a smaller, more intimate event, but still glamorous and jaw-dropping, as usual. After being canceled last year, and postponed to this September, the red carpet was filled with fabulous fashions and celebrity sightings, and the “In America: A Lexicon of American Fashion” exhibition is just around the corner. Design Limited Edition is going to tell you everything about the best-dressed celebrities at the Met Gala, and the upcoming fashion exhibition.
Best Dressed Celebrities at The Met Gala’s Red Carpet
The 2021 Met gala took place on September 13, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The theme for this year’s edition was the ingenuity of the American style. Guests surprised everyone with a range of interpretations and made this year’s red carpet one of the most exciting and unpredictable to date. Find below our favorites outfits:
The American gusty adventurous sartorial spirit was present in every look, and whether they created a viral moment, didn’t fit expectations, or went hidden, all celebrities committed to the theme! Their lively, larger-than-life looks were in sync with the dramatic pieces that fill the “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” exhibition.
Not even Covid-19 wealth measures and social distancing slowed down the Met Gala. The sense of joy hovered in the air, and the resilience of the fashion community after a challenging year made the moment even more significant.
“In America: A Lexicon of American Fashion”
The first of a two-part, year-long extravaganza, “In America: A Lexicon of American Fashion” is organized into 12 sections that attempt to express the emotional qualities in American style. American fashion might have long been seen as commercial, but this fashion exhibition came to prove that fantasy and emotion are well-established qualities in fashion in America, as well.
It opens with a display of 100 garments dating from 1940 to the present day, et in an installation design inspired by a patchwork quilt. The fashion exhibition is formed of white scrimmed cases, a three-dimensional patchwork quilt, each containing a specimen of American fashion history. It assembles to an 1856 quilt in the museum’s American Wing created by Adeline Harris Sears featuring white silk diamond-shaped squares signed by some of the most famous Americans of the period.
American fashion has traditionally been described through the language of sportswear and ready-to-wear, emphasising principles of simplicity, practicality, functionality, and egalitarianism. Generally denied the emotional rhetoric applied to European fashion, American fashion has evolved a vernacular that tends to sit in direct opposition to that of the haute couture. Part One of “In America” addresses this linguistic imbalance by presenting a revised vocabulary of American fashion based on its expressive qualities.Andrew Bolton, Costume Institute’s head curator
