Men at 2021 Met Gala Celebrating In America: A Lexicon of Fashion

The full recap of the best and worst men dressed up at 2021 Met Gala Celebrating In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.

#MetInAmerica has arrived ✨

Take a peek inside “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” which opens to the public this Saturday, September 18, and will be celebrated tonight at the Costume Institute Benefit (you might know it as the #MetGala), the fundraiser that supports the @metcostumeinstitute.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Inspired by the concept of the patchwork quilt—and Adeline Harris Sears’s 1856 quilt from the @metamericanwing collection, on view in the show—the exhibition establishes a modern vocabulary of American fashion and celebrates the creativity and originality of designers working in the United States.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Displayed in scrimmed cases that represent three-dimensional “patches” of a quilt, 100 ensembles are organized into 12 sections that explore defining emotional qualities—Nostalgia, Belonging, Delight, Joy, Wonder, Affinity, Confidence, Strength, Desire, Assurance, Comfort, and Consciousness—resulting in a richly textured “quilt” of American fashion.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
“In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” will be on view for a full year, in honor of the The Costume Institute’s 75th anniversary in 2021. ⁣

Omg Daniel! 😍 @instadanjlevy is a work of art on the #MetGala red carpet.

A big heartfelt thank you to @cartier for so generously welcoming and accessorizing me tonight. What I’ve so long admired about the Costume Institute is its commitment to educate and inspire people through fashion. 

I was fortunate enough to also get to work with @jonathan.anderson and the incredible team of designers and craftspeople at @loewe on a look that meant something to all of us. With support from the estate of American multimedia artist and LGBTQIA+ activist, David Wojnarovicz (1954-1992), Jonathan and the design team built upon an image of two men kissing from Wojnarovicz’s work, Fuck You Faggot Fucker, named after a homophobic cartoon the artist had come across. But rather than feed on the message of hate, we wanted to celebrate queer love and visibility - acknowledging how hard artists like Wojnarovicz had to fight, while also presenting the imagery in a way that offered a hopeful message. Tonight, we’re celebrating the resilience, the love, and the joy of the community while honoring a crucial American voice that was taken from us too soon.

To mark the collaboration, Loewe has made a donation to Visual AIDS, an organization Wojnorovicz supported, that continues to promote AIDS awareness and education.

The ˝Ru-veal˝

Triple threat! This one is for the champions ✨ @lilnasx stuns the #MetGala red carpet with three shimmering looks by Versace.

The rapper old a three-part LGBTQ+ American fairytale with his look for the 2021 Met Gala. He arrived on the red carpet in a dramatic cape that exudes regality and represents concealing one's true self. The cape was then shed to reveal gleaming Medusa-adorned armor, a symbol of protection from the prejudices faced as a Black, queer person. Finally, the armor is removed to reveal a skin-tight bodysuit that represents living life as your true, unguarded self.
