The 10 Young Stars That Dominated The Met Gala 2021

The Met Gala is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious fashion events of the year. As an invite-only extravaganza, only the Hollywood elite can be expected to grace the red carpets. This year’s theme is ‘American fashion’, and the interpretations were a sight to look forward to. 

This year was even more special as the peak of the pandemic meant there was no Met Gala in 2020. Therefore, viewers were left fashion hungry. The greatest serves came from young stars. Below is a list of the ten youngsters that gave everyone else a run for their money.

So what if you couldn’t go to prom if you get to go to the Met instead? Emma Chamberlain looked elegant in a gold ensemble by Louis Vuitton. However, it is not clear what stole the show between the dress and her bold hypnotic green eyeliner.

Lil Nas X

Was gold the real theme of the night? Perhaps not, but Lil Nas X is another star that rocked not once, but thrice, all outfits custom made by Versace. The “Montero” singer dawned a gold dramatic cape upon entry before taking the cape off to reveal a gold metal suit. Lil Nas X finished off with a bodysuit.
