She came, she walked and she conquered, well, I am talking about out very own Deepika Padukone who rocked the Met Gala 2019 in a sugary pink Zac Posen gown.
Pink was the colour of the night at yesterday's Met Gala, with Lady Gaga, Kacey Musgraves, and more putting their own campy spins on the rosy hue.
However, Deepika Padukone was not far behind as she too made the shutterbugs go wild as she walked in wearing a structural princess gown by Zac Posen with a surprising technological twist. The strapless gown was covered in hundreds of 3D-printed embellishments.
To complement her lovely cascading gown, the Chhapaak star wore jewellery by Lorraine Schwartz, striking purple eye makeup, and a voluminous ponytail for extra height.
Deepika's metallic pink lurex jacquard gown contained a complex, layered skirt spotted with 408 sea urchin-inspired baubles that were and hand-sewn to the fabric. The adornments were created using stereolithography, a 3D printing technique where a structure is constructed layer by layer using a liquid substance that's solidified by a laser. After the accessories were created, they were metal plated and painted. The process of creating these decorations took over 160 hours.
The theme of this year's gala was Camp: Notes On Fashion. No, not camp as in sleeping bags and tents, but camp as in exaggerated fashion. The exhibit is inspired by Susan Sontag's 1964 essay that defines camp as Love Of The Unnatural: Of Artifice And Exaggeration.
The gala was co-hosted by two campy fashion aficionados: Lady Gaga and Harry Styles. Even more fitting, the entire 2019 event was sponsored by Gucci. Gucci's Alessandro Michele along with tennis icon Serena Williams joined the two pop stars as co-chairs of the 2019 gala.
Met Gala 2019 took place on Monday, May 06, 2019, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
