Gossip Girl here. Last night New York City was lit up with literal stars and the steps of the Met were swapped from a lunch spot for the elite to a red carpet. The 2021 Met Gala theme was ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’ and Gossip Girl star Whitney Peak, styled by Amika Global Artistic Director Naeemah LaFond (@naeemahlafond), was BREATHTAKING. Scroll down for the full breakdown.


The Inspiration

“When I think of things that are innately American, afros and natural hair are at the top of my list. The aesthetic and beauty of Black women have heavily influenced the American fashion industry throughout the years. For this year’s Met Gala theme, Whitney Peak will pay homage to black beauty and its relationship with fashion. She’s rocking her natural texture and we’re going big using the Amika’s Un.Done Volume and Matte Texture Spray to break up the coils and create airy gravity-defying volume,” said Naeemah.
