Was Lewis Hamilton at the Met Gala?

This year's theme was a nod to American fashion. Lewis Hamilton and designer Kenneth Nicholson attend the Met Gala on Sept. 13, 2021. Just 24 hours before the event, Hamilton narrowly escaped serious injury after being involved in a collision at the Italian Grand Prix.

Hailee Steinfeld had a big day yesterday. Not only did we get our first look at her as Kate Bishop in the first trailer for Hawkeye, but she also went to the Met Gala and broke the internet with her look—mainly because everyone was shocked by how different Steinfeld looked during her walk up the iconic stairs of the Met, but still!

With the theme “American Independence,” the range of looks was … well, all over the place, but Steinfeld was clearly one of the best of the night. And seeing as Twitter all lost it over her entrance was a good indicator of just how amazing her look was!

Jason Derulo Didn't Fall Down Met Gala Stairs 15 September, 2021 - 08:00am

The man in white in this picture is not Derulo, and this photograph was not taken at the Met Gala.  This photograph dates back to 2011, and shows a guest attempting (and failing) to perform a stunt at the Cannes Film Festival in France. The caption of this photograph from Getty Images reads:

“A security man grabs a guest who tired to perform a stunt on the red carpet before a ceremony in honor of French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo and the screening of ‘The Beaver’ presented out of competiton [sic] at the 64th Cannes Film Festival on May 17, 2011 in Cannes.” 

Photographer Anne-Christine Poujoulat captured this moment in a series of images. This person’s face is visible in the first few photos and it is clearly not Derulo:

According to Know Your Meme, the claim that this image showed Derulo falling down at the Met Gala appears to have started in 2015 with a tweet from @dashuasofjack. The claim went viral, and this image has popped up during several Met Galas since then.  In 2015, Derulo gave his reaction to the rumor, saying that he thought it was hilarious, but that it also had his grandmother worried:
