Between the VMAs and the Met Gala, New York was filled with even more celebrities than usual this week, and their outfits did not disappoint. As summer draws to a close, fall fashion begins, and thankfully everyone got the memo. Justin Bieber attended the red carpet in a chunky turtleneck for his own documentary screening, and A$AP Rocky sported a yellow coat at Rihanna’s Met Gala after-party. Did I mention I also saw the most interesting accessory to ever grace an event? Thanks for the surprise, Nik Dodani! Below, see these and more of the best looks from the week.
Model Ella Emhoff and her boyfriend, Sam Hine, on their way to the Met Gala after-party on September 13.
Cowboy boots have been a staple in fashion, and Emhoff added a twist. Matching her long red dress with chunky boots flashing an almost Westernlike print proved to be the perfect look. Plus, Hine’s lettuce collar adds some flair to a great basic look.
Most Likely to be Mistaken As a Tourist
Justin Bieber attends the Justin Bieber: Our World event at the Edge at Hudson Yards on September 14.
Bieber looks ready to tour NYC with his bucket hat and dad shoes, and I’m into it.
Best Classic Look
Actress Cherry Jones attends the New York Premiere of The Eyes Of Tammy Faye on September 14.
A solid-black outfit can be hard to spice up, but Jones did well, pairing it with pearls and a red clutch.
Most Likely to Crash a Spelling Bee
Nik Dodani and Brigette Lundy-Paine attend a screening of Dear Evan Hansen at the Whitby screening room on September 14.
The hottest accessory of fall 2021 goes to a vest and a dictionary. And it only gets better with Dodani’s ring-studded hand grasping a dictionary.
Best Outfit I’d Like to Wear
Actress Zoey Deutch at a Met Gala after-party on September 13.
This is the shift dress dreams are made of, and matched with her headband, Deutch perfectly executed this vintage look.
Best Use of Yellow
A$AP Rocky attends Rihanna’s Met Gala after-party on September 13.
The addition of a jacket is the perfect accessory for a September party, and the color is stunning and fun, escalating the whole outfit. While fur can be hit or miss, the little addition here is subtle and, paired with the pearl necklace, very sweet.
Most Likely to Be Wearing a Hanes Undershirt, But in a Cute Way
Influencer Lily Montasser attends the Rag & Bone deli pop-up party co-hosted with Ray’s on September 16.
Effortlessly cool, and the perfect transition to a fall outfit, Montasser looks ready for any and all pop-ups. Plus her green puffer is the perfect shade for the season.
