Stars walked the red carpet at the 2021 Met Gala on Monday.
The event, which was cancelled last year amid the coronavirus pandemic, made its return – and it didn’t disappoint as Kim Kardashian covered everything but her ponytail in a look designed by Demna Gvasalia, the creative director of Balenciaga, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez was the couple to watch and gave us something to talk about when they kissed through their masks, and is that A$AP Rocky alongside Rihanna, in his comforter?
