For those who were unaware, this year's Met Gala theme was “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” which meant the stars walked the red carpet wearing the looks that they thought best encapsulated “a modern vocabulary of American style.”
Of course, each star embraced the theme in various ways, whether it was reworked denim, stylish streetwear or political pieces. But in a few cases, the guest celebs decided to channel the style of some of America's greatest icons, ranging from Marilyn Monroe to Rita Hayworth.
These vintage influences were a notable trend and this old Hollywood vibe resulted in some of the most glamorous ensembles of the evening. Check out five of the night's best looks that were inspired by Hollywood icons.
