Priyanka Chopra recently attended the Met Gala, and though she looked stunning to us, the reaction of people over the internet was something different.
Though the gala is big outside, it is not so popular in India.
So what makes this event so popular outside, well The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City.
Started in 1971, it marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit.
Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit.
Each year, celebrities are chosen to serve as the event’s honorary chairs.
Priyanka wore a dramatic customized brown color Ralph Lauren trench coat gown with a 20ft train and black boots. She flaunted the top knot high bun, sculptural silver earrings and completed the look with a minimal makeup and brown lips. The Ralph Lauren outfit was perfectly going with the theme of this year’s ball, an homage to Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo.
The intelligent design from Ralph Lauren had a detachable train which Priyanka removed for the after party. Her instagram post went like this…… “Ingenious design by @RalphLauren and thank god for it!! Imagine the 20 foot train at the after party lol ??! #SpotTheDifference #WardrobeHacks #TheCaseOfTheMissingTrain #InspectorGadget or #SherlockHolmes”.
We think that she was bold enough to carry such a dress and made a mark with it in a right way in the international media and in an international event. Going by the kind and the theme of the event she has done full justice. Thumbs up from us….. after all it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
