For many international participants, it was their first time returning to the United States since Covid, adding a jolt of energy to the pomp. Throughout the week, there was no shortage of creative looks — some the inventions of brands, others of individuals — worn by guests and spectators alike who seemed to evince a renewed appreciation for dressing up.
