Met Gala 2021 is on its way so get ready to feast your eyes. Often dubbed as “fashion’s big night out”, the annual evening is known for hosting A-list celebrities from the world over. Well-known faces dressed in thematic outfits walk on the carpet during the soirée. The biggest change on the fashion calendar last year was the absence of the Met Gala. The Met Gala 2020 was cancelled mid-March owing to the pandemic. As the world reminisces moments from past years, let’s recap some of the most memorable appearances made by Indian attendees in 2019.
Deepika Padukone arrived in a larger-than-life version of Barbie at Met Gala 2019. It was her third appearance at the event and the actress made it worth remembering. Her gorgeous pink Zac Posen gown perfectly complemented her quaffed hairdo.
For her third appearance at the Met, Priyanka walked down the carpet in a silver oversized ensemble. Her look consisted of: the stunning gown by Dior, a pair of silver pumps, a dramatic cage crown that hogged the spotlight and multi-layered pendants by Chopard.
Natasha Poonawalla wore a custom-made Peter Dundas dress last year. The businesswoman, philanthropist and mother of two walked the carpet in a crystal embellished minidress put on with a detachable skirt in blue. A silver belt cinched the look together. She sealed the look with tie-up shoes and a diamond maang tikka.
