The biggest night in fashion took place in New York City on Monday night and the looks did not disappoint. Guests of the Met Gala are hand-picked by Anna Wintour herself, and it seems that a few Canadian A-listers made the cut. This year, though, our famous friends from the north didn’t get to represent their home country on the carpet — this year’s theme was all about showcasing American style.

The Met Gala is known for the memorable, breathtaking, and sometimes bizarre outfits worn by celebrities on the red carpet. While some Canadian stars played it safe in simple suits and gowns, others made more bold and artistic choices with powerful messages woven into their design.

Here are 8 Canadian celebrities slaying the carpet at the 2021 Met Gala.

Of anyone who attended the Met Gala, it was Dan Levy who really made a statement with his outfit choice. The custom LOEWE ensemble features two works by LGBTQ activist David Wojnarowicz, who imagined what a “gay superhero” might wear. The look “asserts visibility for queer people,” and celebrates inclusivity, according to the designer, who also made a donation to an AIDS awareness organization.
