Lily Allen looks typically chic as she wraps up in a black wool coat upon her arrival in NYC ahead of the Met Gala

Lily Allen wrapped up as she arrived at the swanky Carlyle Hotel ahead of the Met Gala in Monday in New York City.

The singer, who turned 37 that day, looked stylish in a black wool coat which she wore above a matching jumper while accessorising her look with a heavy-looking tan handbag. 

She strode into the celebrity hotspot in a pair of casual white trainers and framed her face with a pair of charcoal sunglasses.

The Fear songstress appeared to go make-up free to showcase her natural beauty and wore her raven tresses in a tousled updo.

She later shared grabbed her cleavage through a white towel as she took a mirror selfie, while covering her damp locks with a matching number.

In her caption, she wrote: ‘AULD.’ 

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, also known as the Met Gala, is considered by many as the ‘Super Bowl of celebrity red carpets.’

Fashion’s biggest night is traditionally held the first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute in New York City, with last year’s event moved to September due to the pandemic.

This year’s dress code is ‘gilded glamour’ to match the theme of ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ a continuation of last year’s ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.’

Tickets for the glitzy event can reportedly cost up to $35,000 apiece, while prices for a table range from $200,000 to $300,000, with last year’s bash raking in a whopping $16.4 million for the Met’s Costume Institute.

Regina King, power couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda are hosting this time, taking over from Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka.

This will be Miranda’s first time as a Met Gala co-chair (and guest) but he was originally intended to co-host the 2020 edition before the pandemic forced its cancellation.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is once again supervising the benefit as chairwoman, a position she’s held since 1995. Her fellow honorary co-chairs are designer Tom Ford and Instagram head Adam Mosseri.

As usual, the sartorial theme comes from the exhibit the gala launches: ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ which is the second of star curator Andrew Bolton’s two-part show exploring the roots of American style.

This exhibit will showcase some lesser-known designers, and also some top film directors, including Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese, host King, and last year’s Oscar winner Chloé Zhao.
