Actress Alia Bhatt made her Met Gala debut and it was magical in every way. The diva, made for a divine vision scintillating in a 100,000 pristine pearl gown, curated in the atelier of designer Prabal Gurung. While she pulled off a spectacular appearance on the cream carpet of the Met a few days earlier, Alia now gave us a glimpse of how she got ready for the fashion’s biggest night!
In the video shared both by Alia and Vogue, the actress is seen trying out her Met costume for the first time ahead of the event. “Can somebody like lift me up now, and place me on the (Met Gala) carpet from here? asked the actress. "From Mumbai to MET," quipped Prabal. Being a ‘Met Virgin’ and going in sync with the theme of the Gala honoring Karl Lagerfeld, designer and the actress locked on a white look. Her look borrowed references from Claudia Schiffer's look from the iconic Chanel 1992 brides collection designed by Karl.
Giving a glimpse of her hair and makeup for the fit, the actress spoke about how nervous she is for her big day today. “When you talk about one of the major events in the year globally, the first that comes to mind is the Met Gala. It is very exciting, but I will definitely tell you that when I am stepping out of that sprinter van, I am going to feel like a little wobble in my knees. It is not going to be really nice because I have a very big dress and very high shoes."
In the few final shots of the video, we see Alia trying to fit in an elevator with her huge pearl-swathed gown, posing next to Hollywood bigwigs and greeting the fans before she heads out for her appearance at the gala.
