Amanda Gorman Is a ‘Reimagined Statue of Liberty’ at 2021 Met Gala

Met Gala co-chair Amanda Gorman hit the event’s red carpet in a strapless blue Vera Wang gown representing a “reimagined Statue of Liberty.”

Amanda told “Extra’s” Cheslie Kryst that she felt it really “suits the theme,” adding, “I wanted to come as a symbol which is about America welcoming the world, so I even have a book that the Statue of Liberty carries called ‘Give Us Your Tired,’ so I just felt a way that I could bring the poetry of the Statue of Liberty here tonight.”
