The long-awaited Met Gala meme has here at last.
In New Delhi: Mumbai Police’s social media accounts are likely to pay attention to anything happening in the world and report it (every time). This time, the Mumbai Police decided to encourage users to always utilize dynamic, or “lively,” passwords (as they wrote in their posts). It was clear that the post had many facets. First, a play on Blake Lively’s name since she served as one of the hosts at this season’s Met Gala. Second, her appearance on the red carpet served as inspiration for her regular password changes (which pretty much eclipsed everything else). The ribbon on Blake Lively’s Atelier Versace gown later came undone to reveal a blue lining. The Mumbai Police’s Instagram post’s caption read: “Keep the passwords you use “Lively.” Alter them regularly.
Blake Lively celebrated New York’s architectural wonders by donning a bow-wrapped Atelier Versace gown. As New York monuments like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building have evolved, so had her attire. In America: An Anthology of Fashion, often known as “Gilded Glamour,” served as the topic for the year.
Versace, the designers of Blake Lively’s Met Gala dress, provided additional information. Arriving on the red carpet in an Atelier Versace tulle column gown embellished with crystal, metallic leather, paillette, and tri-tone copper foil Duchesse, an oversized foiled bow at the waist was untied to reveal the second look in verdigris, mirroring the transformation of New York’s Statue of Liberty from green to bronze oxidation. The 12 zodiac constellations that decorate Grand Central Station’s ceiling served as inspiration for the hand-painted, foiled, and embroidered celestial map on the long Duchesse train. As stated in the post uploaded by Versace’s Instagram account, the initial shape of the garment was inspired by American designer Charles James, while art deco shapes evoke New York landmarks like the Empire State building.
The New York Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted the second installment of the Costume Institute show on Tuesday. The first half was held in September of the previous year. The pandemic caused it to be moved. In addition to Regina King, Blake Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who served as co-chairs this year, honorary co-chairs included designer Tom Ford, Instagram’s Adam Mosseri, and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
