The Prom Dress for You Based on Your Favorite 2021 Met Gala Look

September 14, 2021

Last night, the Met Gala held its postponed red carpet, and although the guest list was significantly smaller than normal due to the pandemic, there was no shortage of jaw-dropping fashion moments from this year’s “American Independence” theme. If you’re anything like us, you love seeing the daring fashion looks celebrities go for on the Met Gala carpet. If you’re looking for prom inspo among this year’s Met Gala, we’ve got the dress for you. 


Kendall Jenner




Kendall’s see-through, shimmering gown was absolutely stunning. While you probably can’t wear sheer tulle with a nude bodysuit beneath it and still be in compliance with your school’s dress code, you can wear this nude gown covered in a shimmering, silver pattern of beadwork, giving you the same effect as Kendall’s stunning dress. 

Hailey Bieber




Simple and classic, Mrs. Bieber’s sleek, black sheath dress with subtle shimmer along the neckline was absolutely stunning. There’s nothing quite like a little black dress, and if you want one with subtle shimmer like Hailey’s, style EW120083 is perfect: a simple black dress with a plunging neckline and shimmering details, this gown is exactly what you need. 

Emma Chamberlain




YouTube star Emma Chamberlain made her Met Gala debut in a striking metallic dress with an asymmetric skirt and bold cutouts in the bodice. This Ellie Wilde style doesn’t have the same skirt or cut outs, but the geometric, shimmering gold pattern has the same unique look as the fabric of Emma’s dress. 

Billie Eilish




Billie channeled Marilyn Monroe with her classic, Old Hollywood look. We’re in love with her vintage-inspired peach ball gown. If you want something equally as stunning as Billie’s look, but with a bit more of a modern style, this pink A-line with a slit is perfect: you get all the Old Hollywood vibes, but with a 2021 twist. 

Emily Ratajkowski




Emily Ratajkowski stunned in her bright red, lace dress. The shoulder details might be a bit much for prom, but we’ve got a red lace fit and flare that has the same sultry silhouette as Emily’s. With delicate lace and a plunging neckline, you’ll have all the key details of Emily’s dress but in a more parred down look for prom.



Lili Reinhart




Lili’s statement floral train made us do a double take—the soft pink and bright floral blooms make the train stand out, perfect for a late summer event. A train like Lili’s would get in your way at prom when trying to dance, but this dramatic, soft pink floral mermaid dress gives you the same look without the excess fabric to slow you down. 

Zoey Deutch 




Zoey Deutch’s shimmering, lilac dress and matching gloves were absolutely stunning. The layers of beading on her dress moved beautifully, giving it a unique look unlike anything else at the Met Gala. This Ellie Wilde design has the same color, with the shimmering purple giving you that same magical lilac glow and thin spaghetti straps.  

Madison Beer




Madison Beer opted for a deep green embellished gown with shimmering jewels that emphasized her figure. The shape makes the dress stand out, and Ellie Wilde style EW121009 has a similar effect done with lace along the bodice, giving you the same figure-flattering shape Madison’s dress has, complete with a flowing train. 

Karlie Kloss




Karlie Kloss’s bold, bright red dress was an absolute showstopper. The shoulders created a striking, rose-inspired look, while the train added even more drama. If you love this style, you’ll love this bright red Ellie Wilde A-line. Rose-inspired lace climbs up the skirt, giving you the same red, floral-inspired look as Karlie, but slightly more accessible for prom.  

Gigi Hadid




Gigi stepped out for the Met Gala in a striking black and white dress. Her all black and white look was finished with bold, elbow length black gloves, adding to the drama of the look. If you love black and white and want an equally as bold look as Gigi’s, fall in love with Ellie Wilde style EW121039: a black and white A-line with bold cutouts along the waist, this gives you a black and white look just like Gigi. 

Kate Hudson 




Between the two-piece silhouette of this dress and Kate’s addition of a striking, feather jacket, this look was one of our favorites from the Met Gala this year. The light pink is a perfect choice for prom, with the simple dress making it easy to accessorize—just like Ellie Wilde design EW21957. 

Amanda Gorman




Met Gala co-chair Amanda Gorman showed up to the event in a stunning, blue gown inspired by the Statue of Liberty. Covered in subtle rhinestones for an all-over shimmer, this gorgeous dress is absolutely jaw-dropping. If you want to show up for prom in shimmering blue like Amanda, take a look at EW121018, which has the same glow as Amanda’s gown created by hundreds of delicate rhinestones.
