The Met Gala, which began in 1948 as a society midnight supper at a place other than the Metropolitan Museum of Art, has emerged to become one of the most significant fashion events in the world. This year’s theme paid tribute to the late fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. In attendance were Billie Eilish, Gigi Hadid, Jenna Ortega, Rihanna, Anne Hathway and many more.

Indian divas upped their style game

As the West dazzled pretty brightly at the unique event, the Indian beauties turned heads with their iconic outfits and regal presence. A-listers from India celebrated the late king of couture, Karl Lagerfeld, at the annual Met Gala as they brought their top style game to New York, oozing glamour and style!

Billionaire Mukesh Ambani's daughter, Isha Ambani looked surreal in a black saree-turned-gown as she paid homage to her Indian roots. Isha dazzled, literally, as she walked the carpet in Prabal Gurung's black silk saree dress covered in thousands of crystals and pearls. She donned a Prabal Gurung outfit for the 2019 Met Gala as well.

Bollywood actress, Alia Bhatt made a stunning debut at the Met Gala. She was dressed in Prabal Gurung’s ivory ball gown, embellished with 100,000 pearls that were hand beaded in India. Her look was inspired by supermodel Claudia Schiffer's 1992 Chanel bridal look.

Priyanka Chopra looked as edgy as ever in her thigh-high-slit black off-shoulder dress with iconic regal bell sleeves as she arrived with her husband, Nick Jonas. The power couple paid tribute to the late designer Karl Lagerfeld in their matching Valentino outfits. To complete her black-and-white look for the night, Chopra sported an 11-carat diamond necklace.

The Indian businesswoman and chairperson of the Villo Poonawalla Foundation, Natasha Poonawalla, is one of the best fashion icons to look out for. She flaunted an iconic-looking dress that is structured in a metallic Schiaparelli gown.

Prabal Gurung’s designs stood out in the crowd.

Nepalese-American fashion designer Prabal Gurung designed outfits for celebrities Alia Bhatt, Rita Ora, Isha Ambani, Taika Waititi, Quinta Bruson and more for the Met Gala 2023. Gurung began his career in New Delhi before moving to New York to complete his studies at Parsons The New School of Design. He launched his own line in 2009.
