The Met Gala may be fashion's biggest night, but the beauty looks were giving exactly what they were supposed to give.

To make up for last year's lack of a Met Gala, the fashion gods decided to bless everyone with two. The first, "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," is just the beginning and tonight's red carpet looks could be a preview of what's set to go down with "In America: An Anthology of Fashion" on May 5, 2022, the first Monday in May of next year. Together, the two exhibits celebrate American fashion and, for the first time, ever, create a two-part Met Gala that gives stars, models, and designers the chance to wear two show-stopping looks to celebrate American fashion.
