Typically, Mondays aren’t anything to look forward to (hence, the term “Sunday Scaries”). After a relaxing weekend away from your computer, the start of the workwear means it’s time to snap back into reality. But, it turns out that’s far from the case this evening, September 13, as there’s plenty of excitement happening in the fashion world. Yes, the long-awaited arrival of the 2021 Met Gala is here, and it’s serving up loads of breath-taking sparkly ensembles courtesy of the celebrity set.
From New York Fashion Week to the previous night’s VMAs, the five days before the gala have offered up more style inspiration than the fashion world has seen in almost two years — and to close out the whirlwind of the week, the glitzy dresses taking over the Met Gala are no exception. In fact, it seems as if many A-listers got the shimmery outfit memo — a few being celebrities like Emma Chamberlain and Keke Palmer who are shining in New York City in one of the biggest (not to mention, most glamorous) trends of the evening.
Below, feast your eyes on the prettiest sparkly dresses that made their way up the coveted stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. And, keep checking back for more as the night is still young.
