Met Gala 2021 red carpet – AOC wears 'tax the rich' dress at event as Dan Levy and Kim Kardashian stun on themed night

09/14/2021

ALEXANDRIA Ocasio-Cortez stunned at the Met Gala last night in a white dress with "tax the rich" written in red, while other celebrities including Dan Levy and Kim Kardashian stayed on theme with daring looks.

Kim K showed up to the iconic event in all black, completely covered, Balenciaga catsuit, while Schitts Creek actor Dan Levy sported a map covered ensemble that featured two men kissing on his chest, which was designed by JW Anderson.

With a closely guarded guest list and intensely coveted tickets, this year’s Met Gala marks the Costume Institute’s 75th anniversary.

The festivities got underway at 5:30pm and stars quickly began arriving on the red carpet.

Considered fashion’s biggest night, A-list guests from music, film, TV, and beyond are encouraged to embrace the theme of the new exhibition each year as they slowly make their way up the museum’s stairs.

Interpretation is everything when it comes to how they dress and how they enter, but the official dress code this year is “American Independence,” which leaves plenty of wiggle room for interpretation.

    KHLOE'S CRYPTIC COMMENT

    Khloe added fuel to the speculation after posting a cryptic comment on the eve of the prestigious event.

    The model took to her Instagram Stories to share a "sad" message reflecting her feelings about being excluded from the event.

    The post read: "Good morning. Today we are staying hydrated, meditating, ignoring people who makes us sad and communicating our feelings. Now go be great."

    KHLOE BANNED FROM MET GALA

    It was previously reported how Khloe was "banned from the Met Gala for being too C List."

    While her sisters Kim, Kendall and Kylie frequent the red carpet event, the fellow Keeping Up With The Kardashians alum did not receive an invite.

    Khloe, 37, has reportedly been barred from the star-studded evening at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art for not being famous enough.

    She and sister Kourtney, 42, have apparently yet to be sent an invite to the prestigious bash, which even their mom Kris Jenner has appeared at previously.

    Sources have revealed Khloe is banned from the glamorous celebration as she is unable to compete with the host of modelling, film and music stars.

    Vogue's Editor in Chief Anna Wintour is said to regard the reality TV favorite as "too C-list" for the red carpet.

    KIM'S CAT SUIT

    Meanwhile, not forgetting elder sister Kim's striking full-face catsuit, the mom of one re-posted a series of images from her profile.

    It was in fact the first black Balenciaga catsuit Kim would wear of the night, following up in a striking all-in-one with eye shade for the after party.

    KHLOE GUSHES OVER SISTERS

    The Good American fashion brand founder, 37, was left to trawl the snaps from the New York ceremony at home, and was clearly finding it emotional.

    Khloe took to her Instagram Stories to upload a shot of half-sibling Kendall Jenner dazzling in her plunging sheer sequin gown with matching collar, and commented: "Ate that up."

    She then added: "I'm not OK" alongside an image of the Victoria's Secret catwalk queen striking a pose on the steps.

    ELLIOT PAGE MAKES RED CARPET DEBUT

    The star, who came out as transgender in December, looked smart in a black suit paired with a crisp white shirt.

    He added a pop of color with an intriguing green rose, positioned in his top pocket.

    According to Affinity magazine, the flower is a longstanding queer symbol dating back to the 19th century.

    It has links to author Oscar Wilde who, in 1982, is said to have asked his friends to wear the green carnation adornment in the lapel of their jacket.

    As such, it became linked with supporters of homosexuality, as same sex relationships were banned at the time.

    FRANK OCEAN'S GREEN ROBOT BABY

    Adding to his ensemble, the "Thinkin Bout You" singer sported a necklace from Homer at the Met Gala on September 13.

    He also donned a black cap printed with the word Dreamcore and an image of a man fishing from the moon, akin to the DreamWorks Pictures logo.

    And his date, a slime green robot baby with sparkling grills, was decked out in a onesie printed with a pattern from Homer's selection of silk scarves.

    It's not clear why Frank decided to bring the green baby to the event – but it appeared to be a good opportunity to showcase his new brand.

    Vogue dubbed the singer the "chicest daddy of the 2021 Met Gala".

    Frank treated the little creature as if it were a real baby, cooing and cradling it.

    On the red carpet during an interview with Keke Palmer, Frank said: "He’s starstruck, I’m starstruck."

    CHANNING TATUM AND ZOE KRAVITZ GET CLOSE

    The pair, who have been linked for the past few months, initially posed separately for pictures on the glitzy Red Carpet in New York.

    Yet after the event Step Up star Channing, 41, who looked sharp in a black tux, was seen appearing to support Zoe's hand with his arm as he guided her down the stairs.

    The actress, 32, sizzled in a sheer Saint Laurent chain dress paired with a silver G string.

    She finished off her sexy look by scraping her brunette locks in a chic bun hairstyle.

    The pair put on an affectionate display as they headed down the steps to their hotel.

    "It was him who introduced Kim to Demna and was instrumental in the newly formed relationship between her and Balenciaga," the source told E! about Kanye.

    "This look on Kim is like a new subculture and fashion statement. No logo, no face, but everyone knows it's her."
