Stars arrive at the 2021 Met Gala

"Dune" star Chalamet, one of the four Gen Z co-chairs of the so-called Oscars of the East Coast, sported a white silk suit with black lapels and white high-top sneakers.

Poet Amanda Gorman chose a blue Vera Wang gown and crystal laurel crown headpiece that she said was intended to make her look like a "reimagined statute of liberty."

"What's so exciting about this year is that we're really focusing on the future of American fashion," Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, who organizes the event, told "Good Morning America" ahead of the gala.

The invitation-only Met Gala is a fundraising benefit for New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and also marks the opening of the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibition which this year is titled "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion."
