The red carpet at Met Gala witnessed a diverse range of looks. From some bizarre outfits like Kim Kardashian’s faceless head-to-toe black bodysuit to some fascinating ones like Gigi Hadid’s iconic dress from Prada to some really wild looks like A$AP Rocky’s multi-colored quilt. Few looks, however, managed to capture everyone’s eyes and fancy like Margaret Qualley’s iconic Chanel white dress with the not-so-subtle tiara.
Not Your Everyday Tiara
While Margaret’s tiara might look like a subtle statement-making piece, rest assured that it is far from it. The tiara isn’t your everyday princess type; it looks more like an expensive and plush headband. Mara Roszak, the magician behind Cara Delevingne’s famous out of the shower hair look – also worked her magic on Margaret. Mara made use of products by Philip B to hold the look in place.
Even her dress that looks effortless was the fruit of 1,300 hours of labor in the atelier. Like every other Chanel look spotted on Met Gala, the one flaunted by Qualley on Monday night took many hours to make. Her simple-looking white organdy and silky tulle gown were embellished with floral designs. The dreamy gown featured 95,000 embroidered sequins, glass beads, and crystals. Margaret topped off her look with a pair of earrings and a beautiful tiara.
Behind the Scenes
Qualley, who is the ambassador of Chanel, has been spotted in a white dress to all three Met Galas she attended. Before Chanel sponsored her, she was seen in one-sleeved Prabal Gurung. She paired her white gown with a statement ring that featured cultured pearls and long earrings that were also embellished with the pearls.
Qualley’s makeup is no less than a work of art. Speaking about makeup, the young and innocent look that we so cherish was done by Kara Yoshimoto Bua. She was inspired by Margaret’s 1920s vibe to do they look.
