Ralph Lauren is pleased to announce that Jennifer Lopez, Kacey Musgraves, Chance the Rapper, Lily Aldridge, Joan Smalls, and Russell Westbrook are wearing Ralph Lauren for the 2021 Met Gala, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”.
Jennifer Lopez wears a custom Ralph Lauren Gown in a rich dark brown with a plunging neckline. The intricate embroidery mixes crystal and beads, with braided silk and leather trims. The design is made complete with a faux fur shearling cape, constructed completely by hand and embellished with a light shower of crystal beadwork that took over 200 hours to create. The look was completed with a Welington Collection clutch and a combination of vintage accessories including a Navajo stamped silver cuff & ring and silver jewelry from the Ralph Lauren archives.
Kacey Musgraves wears an asymmetric handkerchief skirt by Ralph Lauren Collection. The skirt is paired with a black jersey turtleneck top, high heeled boots, and a patent leather belt by Ralph Lauren Collection, and accessorized with a Welington Collection clutch.
Chance the Rapper wears a Ralph Lauren tuxedo, inspired by archival iconography from the original Polo Stadium 1992 collection. Artwork from the Polo Stadium 1992 Collection was reimagined into a double-breasted Polo Ralph Lauren jacket, paired with a sporty tuxedo trouser for a modern take on classic tailored clothing. His wife, Kirsten, wears a Ralph Lauren black jersey evening gown, accented with unique chain links that cross over her back.
Lily Aldridge wears custom Ralph Lauren skirt, hand embroidered with luxurious beads and Swarovski glass crystals. The look is completed with a tonal plaid silk-linen shirt.
Joan Smalls wears an ivory Ralph Lauren jersey gown with a twisted halter neckline and striking waistline cutouts.
Russell Westbrook wears a Ralph Lauren Purple Label Handmade Peak-Lapel Tuxedo. The signature jacket and trouser are crafted from a wool gabardine fabrication. His look is completed with a Velvet Slipper with tonal grosgrain piping.
