Women Of Color Reigned At The 2021 Met Gala, Here Are Our Favorite Fashion Moments
The Met Gala is the fashion event of the year, with the who’s-who of celebrities strutting the red carpet in their painstakingly-crafted looks. And this year was no exception. After the 2020 Met Gala was postponed “indefinitely” last year, the 2021 Met Gala promised to be the event everyone was waiting for.
And this year, women of color reigned. While in the past, Brown and Black people were sidelined in the fashion world, this year, they’re making their presence known. From Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, to MJ Rodriguez, to Eiza Gonzalez, women of color stole the show this year. Here is a list of our favorite fashion moments from the 2021 Met Gala.
