After being canceled last year due to the pandemic scenario, fashion’s biggest night Met Gala was finally back bringing a beacon of light. Instead of its traditional slot on the first Sunday of May, the event was pushed to September this year. Nodding to the central theme of this year ‘America,’ the stars shone brighter than ever in dazzling appearances. The stunning looks of some dazzling divas are elaborated here.
Actress Emily Blunt appeared in the Met Gala Red Carpet as the modern-day ‘Ziegfeld Girl’. Giving a nod to this year’s central theme of the ball, Blunt evoked nostalgia by channeling the ‘Old Hollywood’ vibe with her Hedy Lamarr-inspired look from the classic 1941 American fashion film Ziegfeld Girl. The actress gracefully adorned a floor-length Miu Miu gown, embellished with 132,240 microcrystals. The dazzling outfit was given a modern chic twist with a milky white cape attached to the bodice. A star-spangled and oversized pearls fitted headgear, almost similar to Lamarr’s from the movie, completed her stunning look.
Like Emily Blunt and many other attendees, model Anok Yai also channeled the ‘old Hollywood’ glam flaunting one iconic American star-inspired style statement. Giving a tribute to the 1920s civil rights activist, entertainer, and Jazz Age star Josephine Baker, Anok donned a figure-hugging outfit in gorgeous black and silver. The full black “skimming celestial crystal gown”, from the Oscar de La Renta Spring 2022 collection, featured a plunging neckline and was embellished all over with stars and flowers-shaped dazzling crystal designs. Stylist Carlos Nazario matched the model’s glamorous look with sheer black opera gloves and Giuseppe Zanotti heels. Anok also effortlessly pulled off a black feather-bursting oversized shawl, which added extra elegance to the crystal-choked outfit.
Sienna Miller was looked absolutely phenomenal after arriving at the fashion event’s Red Carpet in a beautiful creamy gold Gucci gown. The floor-length gorgeous dress perfectly highlighted her lithe figure. It featured a cut-out detailing across the chest and was adorned with a rhinestone harness and silver stone-studded beading along the bodice. Sienna paired the outfit with glittering silver earrings, and a matching gorgeous fur coat, which trailed behind her at the famous staircase. The actress completed her golden glam with loose wave-styled glossy blond locks and natural glowing makeup on her flawless complexion.
