UT Colleges as Met Gala Looks

This year’s Met Gala presented us with dazzling red carpet looks. The theme for 2021 was American Independence.  To add a fun UT spin to the event, I put together a list of the Met Gala looks that resembled UT colleges the most.

College of Liberal Arts

Ms. Kim Kardashian never fails to put on a show. What exactly is this cloak supposed to mean? I can’t be completely sure. However, I do know she was wearing Balenciaga head-to-toe and couldn’t help but be reminded of our liberal arts buddies. So much indecisiveness, yet so secure.

Moody College of Communication

Our dear friend Emma Chamberlain. Didn’t she look stunning in Louis Vuitton? I don’t know about you all but I loved the sparkle. She looked classy, sexy and gave the carpet exactly what it needed: a straight-to-the-point look. At Moody, communication is all about being straightforward and doing it with grace. 

Steve Hicks School of Social Work

Lupita Nyong’o always takes my breath away. At first glance, I couldn’t tell that her dress is well… a jean dress? She took the jean jacket to a whole other level. The dress was unique in its own way for the same reason our school of social work is: filled with integrity and passion all at once.

College of Natural Sciences

Supermodel Kendall Jenner looked fantastic, as usual. She shined with her Givenchy see-through dress and it made me think of the largest college at UT. Ms. Jenner is one of the most well-known supermodels and she delivered the energy of the dress beautifully. The College of Natural Sciences acts in the same manner: a very popular college, but very necessary. 

Cockrell School of Engineering

Anok Yai was breathtakingly beautiful. She looked glowy and glamorous with her Oscar de La Renta dress. She gave us a glimpse of the #10 best engineering college according to the Academic Ranking of World Universities. Both Anok and Cockrell do what they do best simply because they are who they are: leaders and record breakers. 

McCombs School of Business

Ben Platt gave us a fun, sparkly cowboy look that automatically made me think of Texas. The McCombs School of Business is just like this rhinestone cowboy look: innovative measures on traditional designs. 

While it may be hard to envision yourself in these pricey looks, remember that you can see a little bit of you in everything! Even if it is just your UT college.
