The famous gala at the Metropolitan Museum of New York, better known as the Met Gala, is a unique event for fashion lovers, as well as for those of us who enjoy watching the designs of our favorites from the couch, always waiting for those glimpses of irreverence from our favorite celebs.

This year we knew we were in for some surprises. Still, as always, our imaginations fell far short, especially with a theme as versatile as “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.”

Opening September 18, the exhibition will highlight everything from the luxurious ease of Halston’s ’70s glamour to Rodarte’s ethereal touch to Kerby Jean-Raymond’s powerful political vision for Pyer Moss.

From Jennifer Lopez to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, these were the Latinos que se comieron the Met Gala 2021.

Perhaps our favorite surprise was the appearance at the Met Gala of Bronx representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz. In her first attendance at the event, the Democratic-Socialist congresswoman wore a white Brother Vellies gown, which read in thick red letters “tax the rich.”
