May 3, 2022 (New Delhi): As the highly-awaited star-studded evening Met Gala 2022 has begun in full swing with several celebrities from various industries gracing the red carpet, the audience received a stunning glimpse of the iconic sister duo, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid as they both arrived sporting quirky outfits.
Gigs surprised by straying from the Met Gala’s traditional formal attire and instead rocking edgy, deep red patent latex pants attached to pointed toe boots and a matching corset. She topped off the one-piece with a massive floor-length bubble puffer coat featuring enormous sleeves (all by Atelier Versace), a ruby necklace and wine colored lipstick. She also wore her bright blonde hair slicked back into an architectural updo.
According to the brand, her outfit was “a modern interpretation of coats from the late 1800s … The corset and the overexaggerated volume of the jacket confront each other in a decadent display of contrast inspired by the volume and dramatic change in womenswear silhouettes of late 1800s.”
Meanwhile, Bella went for a similar vibe. The star rocked a Burberry look featuring a plunging, BDSM-like black leather bodysuit embellished with side chains, plus tulle sleeve gloves, sexy stockings and a floor-length lace train. She even roped a vintage pearl multistrand necklace from Briony Raymond around her ankle to nod to the vintage glamour of the theme.
“It’s a little bit of me, a little bit of him,” Hadid told Vogue of working with creative director Riccardo Tisci on the look.
Other fashion icons like English supermodel Naomi Campbell, who wore an eye-catching and custom purple dress from Valentino and Kate Moss who opted for a simple blackk dress were present at the same charity event. Phoebe Dynevor and Lily James were also present, as reported by People.
Prince Charles’ Charity aims to tackle youth unemployment through education and employment programs. The star-studded charity event happened days before the Met Gala, the biggest night for fashion which is known for its A-lister guest list and the changing theme every year. The Met Gala 2022’s theme is “Gilded Glamour”, to pay homage to Old American fashion and is co-hosted by Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Regina King and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram and Anna Wintour will continue their roles as honorary Met Gala co-chairs. The event will happen on 2nd May this year.
