of sand and with help to climb the iconic staircase

Blake Lively has been one of the great absentees from the Met Gala. Several media had confirmed that the protagonist of Gossip Girl He would parade down the museum’s iconic staircase again after missing last year’s edition. Many were already dreaming of the look of the actress, who has always shone with spectacular creations that have made her the queen of the gala, but, several hours after the start of the gala, Blake did not appear.

However, the red carpet was marked by designs that were a fantasy and, why not say it, a challenge, as was the case with Tyla. The South African singer caught everyone’s attention at her debut at this acclaimed event organized by the almighty Anna Wintour.

Tyla arrived at the museum with an exclusive and delicate design by Olivier Rousteing for Balmain. The young woman and the designer had chosen the concept of ‘the sands of time’ to make a dress with which she did not leave anyone indifferent. “The inspiration behind this creation came from the desire to redefine limits and transform an ephemeral material into a lasting masterpiece. The idea of ​​sculpting a garment from something as ephemeral as sand unleashed my imagination and I couldn’t be happier with the end result,” Rousteing told Vogue.

The South African wore a sculpture design that was made with three different colors of sand and microcrystal studs that provided that shiny touch to each movement. A piece, with a strapless neckline and a mermaid tail made of organza, that caused a sensation and also starred in one of the most talked about moments of the evening.

The young woman needed help to climb the stairs of the museum and access its interior to enjoy dinner. Her four companions were in charge of lifting her up, as well as perfectly positioning her tail to achieve that hourglass effect that both the singer and the designer were looking for. In fact, as an accessory she wore an original hourglass.

Reporters covering the gala asked Tyla how she planned to sit at the dinner, since the dress prevented her from taking large steps and the structure was rigid. “What does it matter, guys, I’m a cutie!” she said with a big smile.
