Arguably the best dressed of the evening, iconic supermodel Iman donned a custom Harris Reed strapless bodice and palazzo pants with an intricate overskirt.
The designer was Iman’s date for the evening.
“I give you my biggest dream come true to date,” said the designer about Iman wearing the standout look. “It is my greatest honour and privilege to attend the Met Gala with a woman I have idolised my entire life, a woman who has broken down every barrier out there, a woman who is truly fashion and music royalty, the one and only Iman!”
Megan Thee Stallion attended her first Met while wearing Coach. She told E! News that she wanted to nail an Old Hollywood glam look.
“We literally just got here, like 4 o’clock in the morning,” Megan exclusively told E! News about her Met Gala journey so far. “I just got back from London, from performing. And I just really wanted to give old Hollywood glam, and I feel like that’s what we’re doing.”
