A long braid ponytail, a giant floral dress, and the big ol’ horse head. If there’s one thing that screams “America” at the 2021 Met Gala, it was probably the ludicrous outfit that Kim Petras donned to the event. Sadly, she didn’t wear any horse-inspired shoes to go “clompity clomp” on the red carpet, but everything else about her outfit was rather horsey to us.
The star was accompanied by her dear friend Hillary Taymour, a creative director who was also in charge of the equine look. Taymour also wore a matching headhorse, and the two made a rather funny appearance on the red carpet. Of course, Petras received a lot of mixed reviews for this look, which we totally get, but we secretly love the whole equine vibe she had going on… YEEHAW partner!
Parading an Actual Priceless Relic
That one time that Kim Kardashian sported Marilyn Monroe's "Happy Birthday" dress on the red carpet event at the 2022 Met Gala, the star got slammed by reports stating that the historical artifact increasingly deteriorated throughout the process. This was the very same frock that Monroe wore during the 1962 John F. Kennedy fundraiser.
Not only was Kim quick to receive a lot of disdain from the media, but when reports came out that a replica could have been worn instead, the media went into a complete craze, and rightfully so! Kim hit the theme on the head, but all things considered, this wasn't the star's finest moment if we're being completely honest.
Classy and Cool
"The Devil Wears Prada" star Anne Hathaway slayed on the annual Met Gala's red carpet in 2023. As a nod to Karl Lagerfeld, the star wore a body-hugging cream gown made of tweed by Versace. Tweed was, of course, one of the late designers' most used fabrics throughout his career in fashion.
The strapless number included voluptuous cutouts on the torso, with one opening extending into a thigh-high slit. The cutouts were held in place by Versace's iconic safety pins. The star is accessorized with matching opera gloves, a lavishing diamond choker by Bulgari, and white platforms. Anne looked mighty fine in this feminine and stunning piece, and from us, it's an undoubted yes!
Channeling Her Inner Doll
In 2022, when Billie Eilish graced the Met Gala's carpet, she stunned everyone with a stunningly classic look. The 20-year-old at the time appeared in a custom corseted gown by Gucci. The stunning frock featured green lace and an ivory skirt, and let's not forget the padded bustle, of course.
The star rocked her usual black hair, which she had tied up in a bun to accentuate the features of her outfit. She was bejeweled in a black choker with embroidery, and she wore beige shoes made from vegan materials to advocate that aspect of her life (we guess). It was a beautiful transformation, considering she sports oversized streetwear on the regular.
For the Love of White
Bad Bunny always knows how to put on a showstopper when attending red-carpet events, and the rapper and singer's appearance at the 2023 Met Gala was no different. For one of fashion's biggest nights ever, the star wore a monochrome white tweed suit with a bold open back from designer Jacquemus. He paired this look with leather platform derby shoes and a slick hairstyle, which was a contrasting look compared to his usual hairstyle.
He accessorized with a 26-foot all-white rosette cape. We love the femme and masculine elements that he brought together so simply. The whole sleek vibe was a far cry from his Met Gala debut the year before, in which he wore a Burberry boilersuit and an actual bouffant hairpiece. We definitely think that the star gave a better look at 2023's event!
