Although praised with countless beautiful words, compared to the previous Met Gala seasons, is the Met Gala 2021 more special?
Originally, the Met Gala was a gala to raise funds for the arts. However, over time, the event has gradually developed and become a fashion playground that is eagerly awaited by stars in particular and fashionistas all over the world.
Every year, the Met Gala is held on the first Monday of May. However, the Met Gala 2020 is postponed due to the Covid-19 epidemic. After 2 years, the public will be able to see the Met Gala again to look forward to seeing the costumes that are too crazy but full of entertainment. Yet contrary to expectations, Met Gala 2021 is considered too pale!
Admittedly, this year’s Met Gala fashion is not bad. Of course, no star with a strong team behind would accept to spend from a lot of money to a lot of money to become ugly on the red carpet. They also showed their decency, but the element of “shock” and rebellion that became the symbol of this event was completely gone.
1. Disappearance of the hottest stars
Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Dua Lipa, Zendaya, Ariana Grande, Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner, Cardi B, Madonna, Billy Porter … are not participating in the Met Gala 2021. These are the names rock the annual Met Gala red carpet. So, the Met Gala is bustling because of them. So without them, “the market is not happy”!
Kim Kardashian is a rare name in the “team to the dock” who is still present at this year’s event. However, she wears a “hidden” outfit, so people can only judge the difference, but no one dares to comment bad or beautiful.
2. Theme “American Fashion”
American Fashion is the subject of Met Gala 2021. This is a theme created to honor and unite American fashion after the Covid-19 pandemic. This is a very humane topic, but looking back on it… pale. A cast of mostly “American” guests comes to a very “American” event, so what’s more “American” here? The theme of the Met Gala that seems to evoke national love is the rope that binds the creativity of the participating artists.
3. Similar to each other
When we talk about America, what do we talk about? Robots, skyscrapers, superheroes Marvel, DC? In fact, despite its greatness, America is a country without a long history of culture.
Because of the lack of a fundamental element, when assigned to the topic of American culture, the participating stars only knew how to exploit factors such as the color of the national flag, famous deceased actors, or… flower(?!).
So we have a Met Gala red carpet that looks similar and no one breaks out.
3. High expectations then much disappointment
Rosé is a star that attracts great attention when participating in the Met Gala 2021 as a Global Ambassador of Yves Saint Laurent. People are waiting for the “Australian rose” to shine and bring Korean identity to the United States. However, high expectations were very disappointing.
Rosé was present at the event wearing an outfit she had previously worn for the cover of Vogue Korea. Her makeup face with weird eyeliner made her look like she just had plastic surgery. Many comments praised the cute beauty of the “Australian rose”, but not compared to the guests, but only compared to the gorgeous outfits she used to wear in the MVs, this is clearly a step. Rose’s retrogression.
CL 2NE1 is the next Asian name to surprise at this year’s red carpet. Before the event, the rapper did not make any announcements to fans or the media. However, the outfit that CL wore at the red carpet this year made many people difficult to understand. She was swallowed by Alexander Wang’s denim “blanket”. Below, she wears a pair of white high-waisted shorts that netizens refer to as a baby diaper. The transparent clogs she wears look no different from those bought at Dong Xuan market in Hanoi. The only bright spot on CL’s outfit is her hair modeled on Japanese Geisha and her super-cool aura, but it’s wrong to say they’re “American” like the theme.
The last disappointing point of this year’s Met Gala is probably the “debt collection duo” Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber. They, on the street, are Hollywood’s No. 1 fashion couple, but they appear at a fashion event with the same outfit as the event staff. Moreover, the couple’s expression as if they had just finished arguing is also a topic of discussion among netizens.
Although there are many controversies, but Met Gala This year has ended anyway. Although there are still many shortcomings, but after two years, the return of this event is nonetheless a great spiritual medicine to revive the world fashion, which is extremely precarious because of the pandemic. Looking at this year’s Met Gala, we beauty lovers can hope for a brighter future that awaits ahead.
