While most major red carpets have returned, true fashion fanatics have been waiting with baited breath for the Met gala 2021. After a brief hiatus—and with COVID-19 restrictions in place—the “East Coast Oscars” are finally back, and so are the iconic looks.
While the outfits themselves are always stunning—who could forget literally any Rihanna ensemble—the hair and makeup looks are just as good. And seeing as this year’s theme “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” is pretty open ended, attendees had the freedom to play. And play they did.
If you tuned into the Met Gala red carpet live stream, you may have already seen some of these looks. But for the ones you missed, check out all the best beauty looks from the Met gala 2021, ahead.
