Red, silver, blue, and black- the youth-driven glitzy stars dazzled at Met Gela in all hues to celebrate the best of American fashion on Monday.

Kim Kardashian turned heads in her mysterious pitch black Balenciaga haute couture gown. The star has experimented with her outfit and did something she had never done before by completely occurring her features. Hiding every inch of her skin, Kim walked like a glamorous shadow. Her estranged partner Kanye West also opted for a similar look.
While Kim was completely covered, Kendell was spotted in entirely different look as she walked down in beige coloured see through ensemble by Givanchy. The outfit was graced with intricate stone work and a chunky head piece.

Co-chaired by four Gen Z stars singer Billie Eilish, actor Timothée Chalamet, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis star Naomi Osaka, a plethora of A-listed Hollywood royalties walked down the famous Met Gala steps.

Some of the stars were inspired by Southern culture. Jennifer Lopez rocked a Western black hat over a Ralph Lawrence plunging bronze gown paired in matching fur jacket. Singer Leon Bridges sported a white cowboy hat and suede jacket, and "Blondie" famed singer Debbie Harry's gown was inspired by the US flag.

Due to the pandemic, last year's Met Gala was cancelled. And Monday's crowd was about a third smaller than usual with around 300 guest. All the guests needed to provide proof of vaccination. However, they ditched the face masks during posing for camera.
