met gala 2021 back to the ball

It might not have been the first Monday in May, as Met Gala protocol normally dictates, but that didn’t stop celebrities descending upon the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City for the annual Costume Institute Gala. After taking the year off in 2020 and being delayed until September 13 this year, stars were ready to pull out all the stops for fashion’s biggest night out. While it was a chance for many A-listers to simply dust off their stilettos and tuxedos, designers delivered the goods with their own interpretations of this year’s theme, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” Billie Eilish donned a voluminous Oscar de la Renta peach tulle gown, inspired by Hollywood starlet Marilyn Monroe.

Two years ago, Kate Hudson was asked about her wedding plans on the heels of her brother Wyatt Russell’s nuptials to actress Meredith Hagner at their mother Goldie Hawn’s home in Aspen, Colorado. “Oh God! I’m not thinking about that,” she told Entertainment Tonight of walking down the aisle with beau Danny Fujikawa. “Yeah, especially after one wedding, you’re like, ‘Whew!’ It’s a lot of work. Not anytime soon, but I love the man!” It seems the time has come to start planning. The Almost Famous star, 42, announced on September 13 that she and the musician are set to wed after nearly five years together. “Let’s go!” she captioned a sweet snap on Instagram, which showed her embracing Fujikawa, 35.

ben & j.lo secret wedding plans

Draped in an ivory mermaid-style Georges Hobeika gown and dripping in Cartier diamonds, Jennifer Lopez was beaming – and looking positively bridal – as she stepped out to support Ben Affleck at the premiere of the actor’s new film, The Last Duel. The glamorous outing at the 2021 Venice Film Festival on September 10 marked the couple’s first red carpet appearance since rekindling their romance earlier this year. “Jennifer is very happy that she is able to join Ben in Venice,” a source tells WHO’s sister publication People magazine. “She is excited to be by his side and to support him. They are still very happy together.” And, it would seem, ready to take the next step. “Jen and Ben both know everything about each other – the good, the bad and…
