Kacey Musgraves looked ready for horseback riding when she walked the red carpet on Monday night at the 2021 Met Gala.

Kacey looked classy in a black long-sleeved turtleneck sweater that was cropped down to show off her toned tummy.
But the bottom half of her outfit caught the eye, as she wore a shiny silver skirt that glowed in the bright light.
The skirt had an ultra-high slit to reveal her legs, but the Star-Crossed singer covered them in black leather boots up to her knees.
Kacey, who often shows off ’60s-inspired outfits, seems to have taken a break from her retro looks for an equestrian-themed ensemble.

“I went for a bit of equestrian influence,” she told Vogue on the red carpet. “I mean, I’m an end-to-end rider from Texas.
“And also, I just like cozy shit,” she joked.
Kacey also chose a Ralph Lauren design to fit the American fashion theme of the gala.
“I’m so excited to wear Ralph, because when you think of American fashion, it’s one of the first that comes to mind,” she said. ‘It’s the good one.’
Kacey had previously made a splash at the 2019 camp-themed Met Gala when she arrived dressed in a pink-clad Barbie doll, with a pink Corvette to drive her.
The singer recently received rave reviews for her new album Star-Crossed, inspired by her divorce from singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly.
It’s clear: “I went for a bit of equestrian influence,” she told Vogue on the red carpet. ‘I mean, I’m a rider through and through, from Texas’

The new album marks its continued expansion beyond country music to the pop field.
Fittingly, she met new pop star Olivia Rodrigo, who helped open Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Olivia complemented Kacey with a black lace bodycon bodysuit by Saint Laurent.
The Good 4 U singer sported ostrich feathers that crossed the neckline of the dress, and she stood in black open-toed wedge heels.
She wore her hair up while Kacey let her long brown braids hang over her chest in waves.
Monday marked the first Met Gala in two years, as the 2020 edition was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, and this year’s event was pushed back from its usual May date.

Kacey and all the other participants had received their Covid-19 vaccines, an essential accessory this year.
“Currently, all attendees at the Met Gala on September 13 must provide full proof of vaccination and will also be required to wear masks indoors, except for eating or drinking,” a Met spokesperson said last month.
This year’s gala will be a more intimate affair than previous editions due to coronavirus safety procedures, although it will be followed by a larger event on May 2, 2022. The two will launch a two-part exhibition, an upcoming American fashion survey seen for almost a year.
In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, which opens on September 18, will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the museum’s Costume Institute and “explore a modern vocabulary of American fashion,” the spokesperson added.
The second part, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, will open in the popular period rooms of the American wing of the museum on May 5, 2022 and explore American fashion, with collaborations with directors, by “presenting stories related to the complexity and overlapping stories of these spaces Both parties will close on September 5, 2022.
