What better place for the Kardashian-Jenner women, cast members from Bridgerton and Euphoria, and some of the greatest names in music to come together than at the Met Gala? If we're being honest, Lizzo topped all of our best dressed lists.

It is no coincidence that such a glitzy guest list exists. The goal of Anna Wintour's passion project (which exists outside of the pages of American Vogue) is to create viral moments. While there was plenty of eye-catching material on the steps of the Met, it was one specific visitor who caused a stir on social media (and no, it wasn't Kim Kardashian and her big arrival in Marilyn Monroe's "Happy birthday, Mr. President" gown).

Following her appearance on the Met Gala red carpet, Eileen Gu, an American-born Olympian, went viral on China's mega-popular microblogging site Weibo. Her second appearance at the fundraising event, the Olympic gold medalist freestyle skier and model was one of the most talked about subjects on the social networking site, which was similar to trap the cat Twitter in its functionality. According to CNN, the hashtag #EileenGuMetGalaRedCarpet had more than 250 million views in a couple of hours after being posted.

So, who precisely is Eileen Gu and what is her background?

While she began her career competing in the United States, the 18-year-old skier handed in her Team USA jersey to ski for China (her mother's native country) in preparation for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, which will be her first international competition. In that competition, she took home gold medals in the big air and halfpipe, as well as a silver medal in slopestyle, making her the world's youngest freestyle skiing champion.

When she isn't on the slopes, Gu may be seen on the covers of many fashion magazines in China, including Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Cosmopolitan, GQ, and Vogue, to name a few examples. She's also appeared in advertisements for Fendi, Gucci, Tiffany & Co., and Louis Vuitton, and she's a founder member of the VS Collective, which promotes female empowerment.
