Gigi Hadid Stuns in a Met Gala Look That Took Over 13,500 Hours to Create

On May 7, 2024, Gigi Hadid graced the Met Gala red carpet in a jaw-dropping ensemble that captured the essence of the event’s theme, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.” Collaborating with designer Thom Browne for The Garden of Time, Hadid debuted a breathtaking creation that showcased unparalleled craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Her attire for the evening featured a white off-the-shoulder corset dress with exaggerated hips, complemented by a white silk moiré coat adorned with black duchesse satin tipping and 3D yellow roses. The entire look, meticulously crafted by a team of over 70 artisans, required a staggering 13,500 hours to bring to life, with each element meticulously handmade.

Inspired by garden statues wrapped in plants, Hadid’s stylist, Mimi Cuttrell, drew upon images of structured stone columns and floral details to curate the perfect aesthetic. The dress, embellished with thorn appliqués and intricate embroidery, showcased the skill and dedication of the artisans involved.

Hadid herself expressed awe at the level of artistry and craftsmanship imbued in her outfit, noting the honor of presenting such a masterpiece on the prestigious Met Gala red carpet. From the voluminous skirt adorned with 3D roses to the hand-embroidered corset dress featuring 2.8 million micro bugle beads, every aspect of the ensemble was a testament to Browne’s vision and the skill of his team.

Having attended the Met Gala since 2015, Hadid has consistently delivered show-stopping looks that blend creativity with elegance. This year’s ensemble, however, stands as a true testament to the collaborative efforts of designer and muse, capturing the essence of the event’s theme while pushing the boundaries of fashion innovation.

As Hadid aptly puts it, the Met Gala is a night for creatives to come together, have fun, and showcase their artistry. And with her unforgettable appearance, she undoubtedly left a lasting impression on the fashion world, solidifying her status as one of the industry’s most influential figures.
