Natasha Poonawala, chairperson of Viloo foundation and the executive director of Serum Institute of India was recently seen at the Met Gala 2022.
Poonawala has given an Indian touch to the occasion as she was seen wearing a saree designed by Indian designer Sabyasachi. It is a metallic gold coloured tulle sari with a long sweeping trail. It has silk threads embroideries with bevel beads, semi-precious stones, crystals, sequins and appliquéd printed velvet. She wore it with the embroidered strapless, sweetheart neckline blouse.
She paired the sari with a hand-forged Schiaparelli metal bustier with exaggerated wires that went over her head. She also wore custom jewellery by Sabyasachi which included headdresses, earrings, jewelled sunglasses, rings, bangles and hath bandh. The jewellery is a part of
Sabyasachi’s Fine Jwellery and Curiosity Art and Antiquity Project collection. The technique used for designing the jwellery is traditional and the stones used are precious and semi-precious.
The look was completed with heels from Christian Louboutin and sleek open hair. Her makeup was also a perfect go with her look.
Met Gala is a yearly fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. The event over the years has become a showcase of extraordinary to bizarre fashion.
This year’s event kick-started on2nd May, Monday and the theme for this year was Gilded Glamour inspired by the turn-of-the-century, Gilded Age in American History. Some looks that are being talked about a lot in this Met Gala are that of Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian, Billie Eilish, Jessica Chastain and more.
Natasha Poonawala seems to be the only Indian celebrity this year. But Indian celebrities have graced the red carpet at the event before. Stars like Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and other Indian actors have represented India at the evening in different years.
