Gigi Hadid arrived at the Met Gala 2022, making an entry that left everyone smiling from ear to ear. The supermodel showed out to the event from the Mark Hotel in a sultry bright red leather jumpsuit by Versace that was cinched at the waist with a body-hugging corset and layered on top with a voluminous, showstopping maroon coat.
She teamed up her outfit with a ruby necklace, wine colored lipstick, and red knee-high boots. The 27-year-old wore her hair in a spiky updo.
According to the brand, her outfit was “a modern interpretation of coats from the late 1800s … The corset and the overexaggerated volume of the jacket confront each other in a decadent display of contrast inspired by the volume and dramatic change in womenswear silhouettes of late 1800s.” This is the seventh time that Gigi has walked the red carpet at the Met Gala.
The 2022 Met Gala theme is “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” with the dress code being gilded glamour and white tie. Channeling the time period between 1870 to 1890, the event asked attendees “to embody the grandeur—and perhaps the dichotomy—of Gilded Age New York,” according to Vogue.
Gigi Hadid’s fashion sensibilities have always been on point. Be it on the runway, streets, magazine covers or high-profile events, her impeccable style leaves everyone mesmerized. And one thing that the supermodel deserves to be applauded for is the way she has carried herself while embracing the changes in her life since her very first Gala.
Hadid became a mom when she welcomed her first child together with ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik, a daughter named Khai, in 2020. But her new role as a mom hasn’t stopped her from taking a step back from her career. Hadid has since been busy with her modeling gigs and appearances, while staying fully devoted to her daughter.
During last year’s Met Gala, Gigi Hadid said that she hopes to set an example for her daughter, Khai. “She’s one next week, and I feel like I’ve been on mama duty. I’ve been at the farm with her every day in my sweatpants and our matching messy buns. I feel like tonight I’m showing her what it means to dress up and own it and have balance,” she said.
