Natasha Poonawalla made quite the statement at the Met Gala 2022 on Monday.
The Indian businesswoman and socialite added a touch of desi glam to the star-studded event, while keeping in line with the ‘Gilded Glamour’ theme for the night. The beauty had all eyes on her when she turned up on the red carpet in a golden saree with a gold bustier and elaborate jewellery.
Kareena Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Amrita Arora and many others turned cheerleaders for Natasha and her iconic look. Taking to their social media handles, the girl gang sang praise of the glamorous outfit. Kareena sent Natasha all her love in a post that read, “The one and only. Ufffff. Love love love.”
Karisma, on the other hand, wrote, “That’s my girl (golden heart emoji). Amazing.”
Malaika Arora also shared a picture of Natasha in her glamorous outfit and wrote “Woah woman you nailed it.”
Amrita declared, “That’s how it’s done!”
In a post, designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee shared the significance of the look. “For me the sari is a truly unique and versatile garment that owns its identity even as it transcends boundaries and geographies. Back when I was a young fashion student, I often wondered when I would see the sari at big global fashion events like the Met Gala,” he wrote in an Instagram post.
For the biggest night in fashion, Natasha’s vision was to interpret the dress code ‘gilded glamour’ with an Indian gaze that revels in its multi-culturalism and authenticity. She paired a Schiaparelli hand-forged metal bustier with a custom Sabyasachi couture sari and trail.
The look celebrated Indian craftsmanship with a gold handcrafted printed tulle sari and trail embroidered with silk floss thread and embellished with bevel beads, semi-precious stones, crystals, sequins and appliqu’ed printed velvet.
The 2022 Met Gala had Lin-Manuel Miranda, Regina King, Blake Lively, and Ryan Reynolds as the co-chairs. This year’s theme was ‘Gilded Glamour’, inspired by the turn-of-the-century Gilded Age in American history.
