Met Gala 2021 live: Red carpet, theme, stream and all the latest updates

Fashion’s biggest night has officially returned, with some of the most famous names set to make their debut on the red carpet tonight at the 2021 Met Gala.

After a year hiatus due to the pandemic, the fashionable event will return to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with the theme: “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” on 13 September.

Ilana Glazer, Keke Palmer, Anna Wintour, Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish and other famous faces have arrived, with many more celebrities on their way.

However, the Vogue-only livestream has proved challenging for viewers, as glitches and awkward silences abound.

There have been a handful of celebrities who have already confirmed they will not be in attendance, with Kylie Jenner, Zendaya and Nicki Minaj all announcing their absences.

When the red carpet officially kicks off at 5.30pm ET in New York City (10.30pm in the UK), you can follow every fashionable detail below.
