Music and fashion meet on the red carpet for the annual Met Gala, which marked the opening of the Met Costume Institute’s annual exhibition in New York City.

Traditionally held on the first Monday of May, this year’s event was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Each year also marks a special theme that ties into the Met’s exhibit and this year was a two-parter: “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” and “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.”

The Met Gala is also typically chaired by a special guest, but this year’s event was co-chaired by actor Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman, and tennis star Naomi Osaka.

As expected, everyone in attendance showed up in their Monday best, and brought their own unique interpretation to the theme, from Lil Nas X’s gladiator reveal to Billie Eilish channeling old Hollywood glamour.

Even the male attendees got creative, as Aussie pop star Troye Sivan donned a little black dress and Frank Ocean brought a little green friend.

From poets to politicians and pop stars, check out some of the evening’s best looks below including Lorde, Megan Thee Stallion, Kacey Musgraves, David Byrne, Debbie Harry, and more.
