Biles, Osaka, Curry, Hamilton… World of sport shines at the Met Gala; see photos | nba

The Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) gala in New York, a charity event organized annually, brings together celebrities from different areas this Monday. And the sports world could not be left out.

This year’s theme is “In America: A Fashion Lexicon,” which celebrates American fashion. The event was canceled in 2020 because of the pandemic. In 2021, the dance moved from May, its traditional date, to September, after the advance of vaccination against covid in the US.
