‘I Couldn’t Breathe’: Bella Hadid Jokes She ‘Blacked Out’ On Met Gala Carpet Due To Tight Corset

Bella Hadid’s Met Gala 2022 look landed her in trouble. The model opened up to Interview Magazine about her experience on the 2022 Met Gala red carpet and revealed she “blacked out” due to her anxiety, or the tight corset she was wearing.

“We spend a lot of time — designing the dress and with my glam team — figuring out the creative part before I actually get to the hotel on Met day,” she told Interview editor in chief Mel Ottenberg. “So by the time it’s Met day, we’re just like living, listening to music, dancing. But 20 minutes beforehand it gets kind of stressful, because I’m a Libra and I’m always late. I try to not be late, but I always am anyway.”

This year the model wore a look designed by Riccardo Tisci, chief creative officer at Burberry. Hadid said she shared her ideas for the look with the designer using a 25-page presentation. 

“…I tried to limit it to the period from 1895 to 1903,” she said. “I really liked a lot of the ties and the big fabrics and the tulle and obviously the corsets and the bustiers, but we also wanted to make sure that it stayed very much Riccardo — very simplistic, but chic.”

Bella Hadid’s Met Gala 2022 look featured a plunging black leather bodysuit embellished with side chains, plus tulle sleeve gloves, stockings and a floor-sweeping lace train. She accessorized her look with a vintage pearl multi-strand necklace from Briony Raymond around her ankle to nod to the vintage glamour of the theme.

That’s when Bella Hadid quipped, “I literally like, blacked out. I don’t even think I got one good photo on the red carpet. Now that I look back, I realize that people literally stand there for 20 minutes and they give. I looked once to the left, once to the right, and I ran up the stairs.”

She continued, “I don’t think I was out there for more than three minutes. I don’t know if that was my anxiety, or maybe the waist was giving cinch and I couldn’t breathe. I mean, there were probably a lot of things happening.”

The interview comprised of a series of behind-the-scenes photos taken by Hadid’s boyfriend Marc Kalman.
