Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Regina King hosted the event, which was also attended by honorary co-chairs Anna Wintour, Tom Ford, and Adam Mosseri of Instagram, as well as a who’s who of the world’s biggest stars—all of whom were instructed on the “gilded elegance” dress code.
As the Met Gala returned to its berth on the Upper East Side, Blake Lively smiled for the cameras in a grand Atelier Versace gown, with husband Ryan Reynolds in brown velvet, Billie Eilish wore an upcycled green lace-trim Gucci dress, and Cynthia Erivo wore sheer white Louis Vuitton with a matching head piece.
It’s also worth noting that Kim Kardashian rocked the met with one of Marilyn Monroe’s most iconic costumes, a gold-beaded body hugger Monroe. Monroe wore it when she sang happy birthday to President John F. Kennedy 60 years ago, and ever since then it became known as the “Happy Birthday, Mr. President.”
Kardashian accessorised the outfit with Cartier white gold drop diamond earrings and a fuzzy white jacket that she wore low to protect her backside, with boyfriend Pete Davidson by her side. Her platinum tresses were tucked back into a bun. According to Vogue, Diana only wore the fragile original dress for her trip up the Grand Staircase at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, following which she changed into a duplicate.
