Shahidi arrived at the Met Gala in a custom strapless Christian Dior gown, embroidered with intricate beading, and fashioned with a thin belt and a long, gauzy trail. Her look also incorporated elbow-length gloves, lined in matching beading, and a braided cap. She topped everything off with a diamond choker. Yara Shahidi always understands the red-carpet assignment. For the 2021 Met Gala, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” the actor and activist arrived in a look that paid tribute to a significant woman in U.S. history.
