Ah, the Met Gala. The extravagant annual event was back for 2021, and we got to witness all the elegant, unique, and slightly confusing (looking at you, Kim K) outfits as famous faces gathered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to celebrate the opening of this year’s Costume Institute exhibition: In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.

The 2021 theme was “American Independence” and saw a wide range of looks; from Kim Kardashian going incognito in head-to-toe Balenciaga to Imaan Hammam in a head-turning vintage Atelier Versace gown, the stars definitely dressed to impress this year.

If you’re wanting to bring a little bit of Met Gala flair into your home, Modsy has reimagined some of the most talked-about looks from this year’s gala. From a vibrant bedroom inspired by Iman’s unbelievable look to the power and optimism in Dan Levy’s ensemble, the team of Modsy designers has created interior spaces that

Kim Kardashian Dining Room

Modsy designer Peter Carr took inspiration from Kim Kardashian’s bold, minimal look and incorporated her monochromatic color choice for a luxurious aesthetic. A set of tall occasional chairs on either side of the buffet evoke the split-train of Kardashian’s daring Met Gala outfit. This opens the side of the table to highlight its contemporary-shaped base. A pared-back design with strong rules (a bold monochromatic palette) mimics the strength and focus of the vision behind the beauty mogul’s look.

Lil Nas X Living Room

Designed by Lianne Castillon, this sleek and sophisticated design reflects the layered ensembles that Lil Nas X showcased during the 2021 Met gala—all three of them. The top layer of Lil Nas X’s cloak, which was incredibly detailed with lush materials, is represented by the curtains found in the design and a mix of classic pieces layered with a modern twist.  His final outfit of the night revealed a crystal-covered bodysuit which translates to glam elements in the design, like the touches of gold finishes scattered throughout the room. All the layers come together to create a classic-glam living room.

Dan Levy’s Living Room

Designer Lauren Mullen came up with this eclectic and modern living room that’s a great representation of Dan Levy’s debut Met Gala look, which consisted of an extravagant blue ensemble that was created in collaboration with Loewe’s Jonathan Anderson and Cartier. The flutter detail in the slipcovered sofa at the center of the design speaks to the similar detail in Levy’s magnificent sleeves, while the more industrial, punk-rock elements, like those found in the mirror and lighting, mimic those in the custom Jonathan Anderson boots.

Naomi Osaka’s Dressing Room

Designed by Mackenzie Rifkin, this punk meets Japandi in this moody dressing room is brilliantly bold. Modsy selected the Orba Pendant from Nuevo to bring in a sculptural element that is reminiscent of Naomi Osaka’s looped hairstyle. The shape of Osaka’s layered sleeves inspired the curved Marigold Desk and Infinity Swivel Chair, elements that also help to give the space a modern feel.

Iman’s Bedroom

Supermodel Iman certainly brought a wow factor to the Met Gala red carpet this year, and this reimagined bedroom from Modsy designer Becky Sturniolo is just as impressive. A mix of natural fibers and glamorous golds encapsulate the palette of this look, emulating an overall hopeful and bright feeling for the future that echoes the message behind Iman’s look. The rounded feathered headboard mimics the stunning headpiece, while the subtle floral motifs nod to the strapless metallic gold jumpsuit seen under Iman’s feathered hoop skirt.
