The recent Met Gala held in 2023 saw several Indian celebrities gracing the red carpet with their impressive fashion statements. Diya Mehta Jatia was among them and impressed the guests with her exquisite outfit and Radha-Krishna hair accessory. She shared her experience of walking the red carpet on Instagram, highlighting the theme of the event, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line Of Beauty.”
Diya’s statement revealed her view on blending cultures and breaking barriers in fashion. She felt privileged to showcase her Indian heritage on a global platform and added an Indian touch to her stunning Prabal Gurung outfit. She described the event as an unforgettable night filled with glamour, fashion, and art.
Diya Mehta stole the show in her black and emerald green gown designed by Prabal Gurung. The gown featured a black halter neck bodice and a green pleated satin skirt. She went for a natural look, with her black eyeliner and distinct eyebrows taking center stage, and finished it off with a glossy lipstick. Her Radha-Krishna hair accessory was diamond-studded and adorned with white, green, and pink stones.
Each year, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City hosts the Met Gala, which serves as a way to raise funds for the museum. It brings together stars, young creatives, and industry paragons. The event started in 1948 as a way to raise money for the Costume Institute exhibit when publicist Eleanor Lambert came up with the idea.
In 2023, the Met Gala event focused on the theme “A Line of Beauty: Karl Lagerfeld,” inspired by the fresh exhibit at the Costume Institute showcasing the legendary designer’s creations. Lagerfeld, who passed away in 2019, had created clothing for Balmain, Patou, Chloe, Fendi, and Chanel, as well as his self-titled label, for decades.
