Wearing an ivory ball robe embellished with 100,000 pearls hand beaded in India, Bollywood star Alia Bhatt made a powerful debut on the 2023 Met Gala.
This yr, the gala, which takes place on the Metropolitan Museum of Artwork, paid tribute to the legendary German designer Karl Lagerfeld, who died in 2019 at 85.
The theme was “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Magnificence,” and the costume code was “in honour of Karl.”
Alia wore an atelier Prabal Gurung ivory silk tulle and satin face organza exaggerated basque waist ball robe with hand beaded pearls.
For her maiden look on the ‘trend’s largest evening’, the Indian star stated she needed to put on one thing that felt genuine and was “proudly made in India”.
“The embroidery, made with 100,000 pearls, is a labour of affection by @prabalgurung. I’m so proud to put on you for my first Met,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a sequence of pictures from the gala.
The 30-year-old, who is ready to make her Hollywood debut with motion film “Coronary heart of Stone”, stated she has at all times been fascinated with the long-lasting Chanel brides, dressed by Lagerfeld, and her look was impressed by them.
“Season after season, the genius of Karl Lagerfeld shone by in essentially the most progressive and awe-inspiring couture. My look tonight was impressed from this and specifically by supermodel Claudia Schiffer’s 1992 Chanel bridal look,” Alia added.
The actor accomplished her look with a bow of pearls on her hair and ring stack in addition to a knuckle duster.
Style stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania was behind creating Alia’s search for the occasion.
Met Gala 2023 was attended by a few of the largest worldwide stars, together with Rihanna, Naomi Campbell, Miranda Kerr, Doja Cat, Serena Williams, this yr’s greatest actress Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh, Pedro Pascal, Lilly Collins, Salma Hayek, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian and Penelope Cruz, amongst others.
