The Met Gala is an exciting event for fashion enthusiasts, with daring gowns, bold m
akeup, and extravagant accessories. It never fails to capture attention with its avant-garde fashion choices. Fans eagerly anticipate the top looks to hit the news and online forums to start debates on the best and worst-dressed celebrities. The much-awaited event is set to take place on Monday, May 1, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
“Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” will be the theme of the Met Gala in 2023 in honour of the late Chanel creative director who passed away in 2019. Since 2005, the highly anticipated annual event has regularly taken place on the first Monday in May, with the exception of the events in 2020 and 2021, which were cancelled and moved to September because of the pandemic, respectively.
Alia Bhatt will attend the Met Gala for the first time this year. According to reports, Alia’s outfit would be styled and designed by renowned fashion designer Prabal Gurung for the prestigious MET Gala event on Monday. You must all be really eager to watch the “Gangubai Kathiawadi” actress at the event. But first, let’s take a look at some of the most iconic outfits worn by Indian celebrities at the Met Gala so far.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas:
Priyanka Chopra Jonas has frequently gone above and beyond for the Met Gala, but the 2019 event was unique in a distinct way. Unapologetic, daring, and unique! Everyone was taken aback when Priyanka appeared in a never seen before persona. The topic she picked to honour Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp” was reflected in her choice of hairstyle, dress, and makeup.
Deepika Padukone is known for her ability to stand out, and her look for the 2019 Met Gala was no different. The actor walked in a strapless pink Zac Posen gown that revealed her as a life-size Barbie in keeping with the theme, “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” for the event. Deepika made the decision to dress in an all-pink attire, complete with a thick high ponytail and dramatic makeup.
Natasha Poonawalla’s gorgeous costume at the 2022 Met Gala made a striking statement about her admiration and respect for Indian culture and fashion. A masterpiece of a tulle sari that was both vintage and modern was created by acclaimed designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, and was worn by the 41-year-old entrepreneur. The garment was expertly crafted and gorgeous and was the perfect blend of Indian craftsmanship and modern glitz. A hand-forged metal bustier by Schiaparelli and elaborate jewellery by Sabyasachi elevated the look.
Sudha Reddy opted for an Indian designer, Falguni Shane Peacock, at the Met Gala 2021. Unlike the dramatic outfits that the event is known for, Sudha kept her look glam yet subtle. She wore a chic top bun with a chain hair accessory that added an extra oomph to her ensemble, complementing her philanthropist and art connoisseur persona.
Isha Ambani stole the show at the 2019 Met Gala in a pale violet tulle V-neck ballgown by legendary designer Prabal Gurung. Mukesh Ambani’s daughter chose natural look instead, sporting flawless foundation, false eyelashes, and a brown nude lip. On the red carpet, less is more, she surely reaffirmed.
