The girls (and guys) showed up and showed out at Monday night’s Met Gala.
As one of the red carpet co-hosts, Lala Anthony kicked off the evening’s fashion show, modeling a Laquan Smith red satin gown with a bedazzled top portion and long wrap-design train with a slit. She finished the look with a matching burgundy flat-top hat and Louboutin heels.
Anthony was soon joined by Janelle Monáe, who donned a glittery, hooded Ralph Lauren gown she called “gilded glamour from the future.”
Alicia Keys‘ tribute to New York City definitely stole the show. Alongside husband Swizz Beatz, she rocked a shimmery silver tube dress with a custom embellished Ralph Lauren cape, embroidered with the NYC skyline.
Normani and Lori Harvey showed off their tight physiques while sporting all-black looks, one from Christian Siriano, the other by Michael Kors.
Ciara also gave a little body in her Michael Kors gown — a sparkly silver and black dress with a high leg slit that she paired with Jimmy Choo pumps.
Despite the slight wardrobe malfunction of her breast cup size being too small, Nicki Minaj graced the carpet with Burberry’s Riccardo Tisci in a black feather tube dress and leather black cap.
Teyana Taylor and Winnie Harlow both stunned in their purple and white couture gowns by Dutch designer Iris Van Herpen.
Lizzo‘s special guest to the show was her flute, and in addition to the finger waves she rocked in her hair, the singer confidently displayed the hand-embroidered gold and black Thom Browne coat that she says took 22,000 hours to make.
SZA paired her hot pink Vivienne Westwood gown with a giant black hat and her favorite latex thigh-high boots, while Megan Thee Stallion served up body and skin her gold Moschino gown.
While Donatella Versace walked the carpet alongside Cardi B, who wore a gold, strapless chain dress, the Italian fashion brand also dressed Lena Waithe in a two-piece aqua suit, and Gabrielle Union in a silver and white gown — a tribute to the late Diahann Carroll.
