Met Gala 2021 Best Memes from Kim Kardashian and Simu Liu to Lil Nas X
Who can ever forget Rihanna's Omelette dress? But this year's Met Gala memes topped all those with Kim Kardashian being the frontrunner
What is Met Gala without the memes? For the past few years, the popularity of Met Gala has dramatically skyrocketed — all thanks to the social media users curating the most hilarious memes out of papped red carpet moments. Who can ever forget Rihanna's Omelette dress or Jason Derulo falling down the stairs? And it seems there was no dearth of memes this year as well.
Kim Kardashian, Lil Nas X, Simu Liu, A$AP Rocky and Anna Wintour remained the top meme subjects, even prompting Twitter to curate a whole new Met Gala meme section in the Trends. After a hiatus of nearly one and a half years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Met Gala 2021 is back, hosted by Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, and Naomi Osaka.
Kimberley Kardashian seems to have developed a newfound love for Balenciaga and full-head masks, as the reality star recreated her all-black look from a few days back. She donned a body-hugging black Balenciaga dress complete with thigh-high stockings, a full-head mask, and a long train. The A-lister known for her revealing red carpet dresses did not have one inch of skin on show. However, her ensemble served as the top inspiration for meme-creators on the internet as they imagined her in the most unrealistic situations.

Lil Nas X is another celeb who was not spared at all by Twitter users. The singer pulled off a Lady Gaga by arriving in a three-in-one ensemble. It comprised a royal cape that gave way to a shielded metallic attire. The final layer comprised an embellished catsuit. However, his metallic armor-like suit prompted social media to find similarities with C-3PO from Star Wars, and honestly, we cannot argue much.
