Alia wore an atelier Prabal Gurung ivory silk tulle and satin face organza exaggerated basque waist ball gown with hand-beaded pearls. For her maiden appearance at the 'fashion's biggest night', the actor said she wanted to wear something that felt authentic and was "proudly made in India". "The embroidery, made with 100,000 pearls, is a labour of love by @prabalgurung. I’m so proud to wear you for my first Met," she wrote on Instagram alongside a series of photographs from the gala.
She said she has always been fascinated with the iconic Chanel brides, dressed by Karl Lagerfeld, and her look was inspired by them. "Season after season, the genius of Karl Lagerfeld shone through in the most innovative and awe-inspiring couture. My look tonight was inspired from this and in particular by supermodel Claudia Schiffer’s 1992 Chanel bridal look," Alia added.
The actor completed her look with a bow of pearls on her hair and ring stack as well as a knuckle duster. Fashion stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania was behind creating Alia's look for the event.
