Back in fashion … Billie Eilish lights up Met Gala
The most glamorous and outrageous event of the fashion world returned on Monday night with the annual fundraiser at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Billie Eilish, the youngest co-chair in Met Gala history, was joined by fashion designers, models, celebrities and – to some controversy – TikTok stars on the steps at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for the pandemic-delayed Costume Institute fundraiser on Monday night. This year’s theme was “American independence”, leaving plenty of room for interpretation. Just ask the rapper Lil Nas X, who did a Lady Gaga-esque three-look strip on the stairway in gold Versace, bringing together an opera cape, knightly armour and a crystal-studded catsuit in one.
