The 2021 Met Gala took place on Monday evening at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
Celebrities embraced this year's In America: A Lexicon of Fashion theme with stunning outfits.
But some missed the mark; Certain outfits didn't go with the theme while others felt too safe or just plain ridiculous.

Kim Kardashian's all-black Balenciaga look was a disappointment when compared to her previous Met Gala ensembles.

Kim Kardashian West's faceless bodysuit ended up being the most memorabilia of the night, drawing comparison with the dementors from the "Harry Potter" films and a toilet sign for women.
A source close to Kardashian West told Insider that Kanye West played an "instrumental" role in creating her outfit. Although the same source described Kardashian West's looks as "like a new subculture and fashion statement," it was a disappointment when compared to their earlier, more elaborate Met Gala ensembles.
Kardashian West also wore a similar look days earlier, which made her ensemble less intriguing on the red carpet. On Saturday in New York City, she put on a leather Vetements trench coat, over-the-knee boots, matching gloves and a mask that closed over her face.
J Balvin has also opted for a covert look in this Jeremy Scott for Moschino ensemble from head to toe.

As an artist who loves to embrace color and eclectic fashion, Balvin's outfit made sense to him - but the Moschino outfit didn't feel like the motto.
The singer adorned the unique ensemble, studded with hundreds of bright flowers and petals, with layered chain necklaces, including one with a smiley locket with flashes for the eyes - his well-known brand symbol - and a pair of simple black boots.
Though it was noticed on the red carpet, Balvin's looks didn't seem to fit the theme.
Addison Rae played it safe on her first appearance at the Met Gala in a Tom Ford for Gucci dress.

Rae attended her first gala in a vintage 2003 dress that looked similar to one of her friend Kourtney Kardashian from the same collection in 2019.
The TikTok star's dress looked good on her, but I think it would have been perfect for an event like the Emmys or Golden Globes rather than the Met Gala, where guests are expected to wear memorable ensembles and stand out stand out from the crowd.
After appearing as Barbie at the 2019 Met Gala, Kacey Musgraves' Ralph Lauren look left a lot to be desired this year.

Kacey Musgraves stunned everyone when she paid homage to Barbie at the 2019 Met Gala in a bespoke Moschino look. For this look, she wore a pink dress with a handbag shaped like a hairdryer.
At this year's gala, however, Musgraves put on an equestrian atmosphere in a metallic-silver skirt and a black jersey turtleneck top. The look matched the In America: A Lexicon of Fashion theme and she looked fab, but I expected to see her in a more flashy outfit after her last appearance.
"Gossip Girl" star Evan Mock followed the trend of covering his face.

Mock arrived in a signature Thom Browne suit and paired it with a leather face mask that was spiked at the top.
