Atelier Versace @ The 2021 Met Gala

Lil Nas X in Atelier Versace - 2021 Met Gala

Versace no doubt had the biggest table at the 2021 Met Gala with 11 attendees including host Donatella Versace.

Lil Nas X told a three-part LGBTQ+ American fairy tale through his looks.

He arrived on the red carpet in a dramatic cape that exudes regality and represents concealing one’s true self.

The cape was then shed to reveal gleaming Medusa-adorned armor, a symbol of protection.

Finally, the armor was removed to reveal a skin-tight crystal bodysuit that represented living life as your true, unguarded self. 

How he continues to outdo himself is quite remarkable. What a beautiful way to express yourself through art.

Lupita Nyong'o in Atelier Versace - 2021 Met Gala

Lupita Nyong’o was the one person we can always expect to be on theme.

The actress wore a custom Atelier Versace gown inspired by Versace Jeans Couture’s love of American denim.

Trust Versace to make a denim gown look so regal.

I adore this sculptural haute couture silhouette and how the piece is enriched with crystal-adorned underskirt with the brand’s thigh high slit.

As always Lupita…bravo.  She never misses.

Eiza González in Atelier Versace - 2021 Met Gala

I was so excited to see Eiza González wearing this Atelier Versace gown which was inspired by the golden age of Hollywood glamour.

Her scarlet gown, enriched with shimmering crystals, featured a unique neckline draped around the back to form an elegant glove.

This was THE perfect fit for her in terms of design, style, colour and brand.

Even Simu Liu can’t take his eyes off her.

The look was styled with Bvlgari jewels. 

Zoey Deutch in Atelier Versace - 2021 Met Gala

Tell me Cher was on your vision board, without telling me Cher was on your vision board.

Zoey Deutch looked beautiful wearing an Atelier Versace gown inspired by the American disco movement of the 1970s.

I was memorized by the Swarovski crystals and the cascading shimmering strings of water-drop crystals.

This look will be recreated by one of the girls on Drag Race, as the design perfectly evokes American fashion icons, such as Cher, and the Manhattan club scene.

Maluma in Atelier Versace - 2021 Met Gala

I’m in awe of the commitment to the theme by Maluma.

The singer wore a custom Atelier Versace look inspired by American cowboys, a theme that has also served as inspiration for several iconic Versace collections.

The scarlet-red leather was punctuated by signature Medusa studwork that married the Versace DNA with American fashion history.

Of all the Western themes, and there were many, Maluma’s was the highlight of the night alongside Jennifer Lopez

 Channing Tatum in Atelier Versace - 2021 Met Gala

Did Channing Tatum need to rock a western themed look to be part of this Versace-clad group?

Nope. Because his classic Atelier Versace black tuxedo referenced the Golden Age of Hollywood.

And my god does he wear it well.

Did he become more handsome? Or has is just been a while since we last saw him on the red carpet?

Taylor Hil in Atelier Versace - 2021 Met Gala

Amanda Gorman wasn’t the only one channelling the Statue of Liberty.

Taylor Hill wore an Atelier Versace Fall 2015 gown in a Liberty teal shade in honour of the iconic Statue.

Imaan Hammam in Atelier Versace - 2021 Met Gala

Imaan Hammam wore an Atelier Versace Spring 2020 gown

Featuring intricately embroidered stars represented the American Flag.

I really enjoyed the subtle reference.  Often the model skip the theme because they make glamour their M.O.  But Imaan, like Taylor, covered both bases.

Stephen Curry and Ayesha Curry in Atelier Versace - 2021 Met Gala

Ayesha Curry wore a custom Atelier Versace gown inspired by extravagant American architecture.

I can’t even imagine how long it took to make this gown because of the intricacy of the signature Versace elements such as Medusa charms, Greca details, and Barocco patterns.

Stephen Curry wore a classic Atelier Versace tuxedo embroidered with the iconic Barocco shape.

The jacket is finished with a signature buckle inspired by Versace’s bondage dress.

Donatella Versace in Atelier Versace - 2021 Met Gala

Donatella Versace wore an Atelier Versace gown inspired by Versace’s iconic bondage dress.

She first wore it in New York back in 1992.

The voluminous silhouette was on theme, as it referenced the work of prominent American designer, Charles James.

She styled her look with a clutch baring the American flag.

I’m so impressed with Versace, for the attention to detail and full commitment to the theme.
