The most important night of fashion in the United States, the Met Gala, was held last Monday, and saw the best talents of the Latine community take over the red carpet.

Every year the Costume Institute holds an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and celebrates its benefit gala. This year, the event asked its attendees to wear the most elegant fashion inspired by the elegance of the 19th century — better known as “The Gilded Age.”

The inspiration comes from the institute’s exhibition, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” which had to be split due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Met Gala consists of a dinner sponsored by the museum, and the most influential personalities of the entertainment industry are invited. Among this year’s guests were several Latine celebrities representing the community, and these were the looks they wore on the event’s famous iconic red carpet.

Bad Bunny made his red carpet debut at the Met in a beige Burberry look that was very inspired and in keeping with the night’s theme.
