Whoopi Goldberg was red carpet perfect in purple at the 2021 Met Gala event. She wore a custom Valentino cape, dress and gloves, created especially for her by Pierpaolo Piccioli.
The actress did, however, admit that managing a gown of this nature is no easy feat. "When you have 50 people helping, it's brilliant. If I had to do it by myself, it would be rough," she said referring to her attire.Whoopi Goldberg attends The 2021 Met Gala Celebrating In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion at Metropolitan Museum of Art on September 13, 2021 in New York City.

Asked if she could get into a taxi cab in her dress, the actress joked, "Not this time. The getting ready process was me laughing a lot, going 'really?'"
Normani, Dixie Damelio and Carey Mulligan were among other stars also dressed by Valentino for the event.
