Designer Prabal Gurung reveals story behind Gemma Chan’s Met Gala homage to Anna May Wong
Donning a look inspired by history, time stopped when Gemma Chan walked onto the red carpet of this year’s Met Gala.
Mind-bending watch: Liu, 32, showcased a Jacob and Co. watch that resembled our solar system, the jewelry and wristwatch retailer said on Instagram.
This year’s Met Gala featured a number of first-time appearances by Asian and Asian American celebrities, from world-renowned female K-pop stars to record-breaking athletes. The event was much more of an intimate gathering — it had only about a third of the normal guest list size due to the ongoing pandemic — but the stars showed up and turned heads nonetheless.
With the theme “American Independence,” here are some of our favorite looks and what fans had to say about them.
Lana Condor’s first-ever attendance at the Met Gala was definitely a memorable one. The “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” actress graced the red carpets in a gloriously poofy, pink Giambattista Valli gown and shortly after she made her entrance and sat down, she ended up losing her purse – with her phone in it – inside her MASSIVE princess-like dress.
Asian stars shone among the brightest celebs who walked the red carpet at this year’s Met Gala.
Considered as one of the world’s biggest fashion events, the annual Gala is held in New York every first Monday of May to celebrate the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s latest exhibition.
