Met Gala worst-dressed list: Gemma Chan wears BIZARRE box dress, Eileen Gu wears tacky leather look 

These Hollywood A-listers certainly made a style statement at the Met Gala on Monday – but for all the wrong reasons.

The first Monday of May is here – which means the Met Gala is finally upon us. The annual star-studded ball, which took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, has become one of the most talked about and coveted events. 

Branded by some as the biggest night in fashion, dozens of A-list stars attended the glittering soiree, which was hosted by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, 72.

And while some seriously slayed the red carpet with their stunning looks, others completely missed the mark – including Gemma Chan, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Lala Anthony.

From bizarre structural frocks to tacky all-leather looks, there wasn’t a shortage of sartorial nightmares on the Met Gala red carpet. 

Crazy Rich Asians star Chan, 39, wore a black and silver ensemble which contained an awkwardly-shaped box-like dress. 

Anthony, 39, had a disastrous fashion faux pas in a sparkling maroon bodysuit and matching skirt, which she paired with a strange and eye-popping silver and maroon hat.

Each year, on the first Monday of May, Hollywood’s biggest celebrities stomp the red carpet in lavish outfits, many of which are compulsively talked about by the public. 

And while some stars put their best fashion foot forward as they turned out for the high-profile fundraising gala – which was co-chaired by Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda – others showed up in seriously questionable outfits.

The theme for this year’s event, which marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, is ‘Gilded Glamour’ – a nod to New York City’s Gilded Age.

This year’s soirée sees the gala return to its first Monday in May date for the first time since 2019; it was canceled in 2020 amid the COVID pandemic and delayed to September last year over safety fears.
