Many stars took part in the event that, every year, comes to life in New York to celebrate the start of the exhibition set up at the Metropolitan Museum of Art from New York City. The dress code this year has focused attention on the theme of Gilded Glamor, aimed at extolling the American golden age. And Billie Eilish came up with an idea of her all of her, pointing to the fashion upcycling with a totally recycled maison dress Gucci.
It’s about a custom creationmade with existing fabrics to avoid further waste, one of the biggest flaws in the fashion system. The bodice is fitted, as it was made in the years of Gilded Age, and features a maxi flower in the center of the chest. The dress is in satin, ivory color, and features lace sleeves with floral embroidery in a pastel green shade, which recalls the fantasy of the underskirt. Billie Eilish’s desire for this edition of the Met Gala was to be “as eco-friendly as possible“. And it was to help her in the enterprise Alessandro Michele. The platform shoes were also made with vegan materials. The structure of the dress follows the trend of Regencycoreinspired to the Age of Regency relaunched by Bridgerton. The dress, in fact, supports a hyper-feminine silhouette with corset, lace and floral decorations.
And if Billie Eilish’s outfit is familiar to you, it means that you, too, like Diet Prada and many web users, you have a well trained eye in art history. In fact, it seems that the inspiration for this look from Met Gala 2022 you come from a painting from John Singer Sargenta well-known artist towards the end of the 19th century who made a painting by Madame Paul Poirson. The singer isn’t the only celebrity to have caught attention at the Met Gala. Also Kim Kardashian proposed a dress already worn by Marilyn Monroe in the 60s.
