Met Gala 2021 saw some fascinating looks – from Kim Kardashian’s faceless blackbody suit to A$AP Rocky’s giant colorful plush quilt. These few looks have managed to take everyone by surprise. Even when it comes to accessories, there were some really bold looks flaunted by many celebrities. What was once thought to be an overthrow of the dress code has now turned into omnipresent red carpet accessories. Stars are playing around with the theme and giving everything their own spin. The case in point is Timothee Chalamet’s outfit, who paired his Hairder Achermann getup with a pair of sweats from Chuck Taylors. For some reason, all these alternative black tie accessories hit right at home.
Met Gala Accessories 2021
This year’s Met Gala further pushed the envelope with many unexpected accessories. Stars showed up on the red carpet flaunting era-inspired outfits. There were stylish ensembles with hidden meaning and subtle nods to pop-culture icons past, but a handful of handbags, shoes, hats, and more stole the show entirely.
The Met Gala theme this year, ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,’ witnessed many unique accessories. What came as a welcome surprise was the fact that the most fabulous accessories came from up-and-coming brands.
Some Unique Accessories That Stole the Show
Maisie Williams and Dev Hynes, and more opted for emerging accessory designers. Hynes paired his red striped brown suit with a lunch bag look-alike tote from the Italian twin sisters led brand Medea. Williams was seen donning a pair of funky slingback from Nodaleto, a footwear label that debuted at Paris Fashion Week in the fall of 2019.
Frank Ocean and Justin Bieber flaunted accessories from their own newly rolled out labels. While Frank Ocean donned a necklace from Homer and a robot-like baby doll, Bieber showcased a bag from Drew. Hunter Schafer took the carpet by surprise when she arrived with a spider on her face. She also wore foggy contact lenses to blur out her eyes.
