The Best Social Media Reactions and Memes at the 2021 Met Gala – Yahoo Lifestyle

On Monday, "America" happened at the Met Gala. Well, specifically, the theme was "American Independence" but considering the wide array of outfits, we're going to shorten it to "America" and hope that captures the general essence of the evening. The assignment, as it was loosely described, was supposed to be a nod to American fashion. If you wanted bonus points, you could highlight the political and social justice issues that have inspired designers in recent years. Or, perhaps, you could come to the Gala as a dementor.

But when you shorten the theme down to "America" and then use your imagination, everyone kind of nailed it. Lil Nas X's outfit (three layers deep, mind you) could have been honoring to famed golden boy, C3PO. Frank Ocean honored our love of aliens? Robots? Babies? ASAP Rocky highlighted the American maxim of staying warm on your way to the kitchen for some 3 a.m. water. Listen, I don't know if any of those comparisons are real, but that's half the fun of judging the Met Gala from home.

Maybe that is the real tradition here. As megawatt celebrities walk the red carpet in avant garde outfits by high-end designers, the good people of the internet are left with the task of making the best jokes about it. How are you going to wear a horse dress to the 2021 Met Gala and not expect a good ol' Ivermectin joke? Below are the best of the crop: from the complete confusion of how to execute the theme to a much beloved Snooki reference.

Stay fancy, America. And tax the rich.
