Stars shine at Met Gala in New York

Celebrities from show business, sports and the arts gathered in New York on Monday for the annual Met Gala fashion show.

The event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was canceled last year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Local media say about 400 guests were invited, which is fewer than normal. They were required to show proof of vaccination and a negative COVID-19 test result.

Pop star Billie Eilish walked the red carpet in a ball gown, while Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka stood out in a kimono-inspired outfit and a unique hairdo. The two celebs co-hosted this year's event.
