Why was Kylie Jenner asked not to sit while wearing her Met Gala 2023 dress?
The Met Gala is one of the most glamorous and prestigious events in the fashion world. The red carpet is full of stunning designs and exquisite fashion choices made by celebrities. This year was no exception, as Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Kendall Jenner attended the event and showcased their exemplary fashion sense. Kylie Jenner walked the red carpet wearing a stunning red, one-armed gown by Haider Ackermann for Jean Paul Gaultier.
Interestingly, the designer laid down strict rules for Kylie while wearing the flamboyant dress. On Friday, Kylie shared a behind the scenes video which highlights her costume preparation for the Met Gala event. The video shows Ackermann instructing Kylie not to sit down or move her arm while wearing the dress.
As per a report by Page Six, on the day of the Met Gala event, Kylie reached the venue in a sprinter van, standing the entire way to avoid wrinkling the design. She even held Ackermann’s hand to help balance herself during the drive.
During the event, The Kylie Cosmetics founder initially hid her gown underneath a baby blue overcoat with a red trim, but then she disrobed on the stairs and revealed the entirety of her gown that featured a thigh-high split and a shoulder cutout.
In the BTS video, Kylie also reveals why she chose to wear the red gown. ” We decided on the red dress, I just think it’s different than anything that I’ve ever worn before. I think the red really stands out. I just love how classy it is and its’ timeless.” She also praised Haider, saying ” Haider is a genius. I have had so much fun creating these looks with him. I’m honored and excited to wear this dress”.
Interestingly, Haider is Kylie’s rumored boyfriend Timothee Chalamet’s “closest” friends. So it also sparked speculations about her thinking behind choosing to wear the red dress designed by Haider.
In conclusion, Fashion is an art and it has the power to express oneself and it was no exception in Met Gala 2023. Kylie Jenner’s red dress designed by Haider Ackermann for Jean Paul Gaultier not only stood different from the other dresses but also had a compelling story behind it. We hope that Kylie continues to inspire us with her fashion choices and we look forward to seeing her in future events.
