Saweetie Shares the Special Meaning Behind Her Met Gala 2021 Look

Saweetie is stepping out in style!

The 28-year-old “Icy” rapper hit the red carpet for the 2021 Met Gala on Monday (September 13) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

She wore a gorgeous red Christian Cowan gown that featured a dramatic cape, which she told ET had a very personal meaning to her.

“My cape represents the Black American heritage flag and the Filipino flag,” Saweetie shared, adding that the piece was “very heavy” and that it actually took eight people to help her get ready.

The annual Costume Institute Gala is the fashion world’s equivalent of the Oscars and the event is usually held on the first Monday of May, but it was postponed until September 2021 due to the pandemic. The theme this year is “In America” and there will be a two-part exhibit with the second part debuting at next year’s Met Gala.
