*Gymnast Nia Dennis had a viral white carpet moment at Met Gala 2021, and it had more to do with her style than drip.
The 24-year-old surprised onlookers with a full gymnastics floor routine on the Met Gala steps. As the Brooklyn United Marching Band played Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” Dennis flipped and dipped – giving an unexpected twist to “fashion’s biggest night.”
Dennis is best known for her groundbreaking Beyoncé and Black Lives Matter-themed floor routines while a student at UCLA. In keeping with the night’s theme “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” she wore a patriotic, blue-hued bespoke adidas by Stella McCartney bodysuit.
Dennis, a guest of the designer, told Vogue: “I feel like Superwoman.”
