Talking about the work that went behind bringing the look together, Alia, on her Instagram, wrote, “It has taken a collective effort of 163 dedicated individuals, including master craftspeople, embroiderers, artists, and dyers, investing a total of 1965-man hours to create this ethereal saree.”

Mona PatelWhile Alia won Netizen’s hearts, this Indian CEO stole the show with her Met Gala debut, which got featured in many “Best Dressed” Lists, including People, Variety and many more. In an elegant nude-tone, strapless, floor-grazing gown designed by Iris van Herpen, Mona Patel nailed this year’s theme with her look. This 22-year-old Entrepreneur and philanthropist, is the founder of radXai and CareFirst Imaging, and has earned a spot among Forbes’ 100 honorees.

Styled by celebrity stylist Law Roach, it was the intricately designed butterfly-shaped corset bodice with mechanical butterflies that even fluttered their wings and a trailing train. Mona herself designed the 3D butterflies in the gown with the help of kinetic motion artist Casey Curran.

Isha AmbaniIn an extravagant, bespoke hand-embroidered couture sari gown designed Rahul Mishra, Isha Ambani’s ethnic-style entry on the Met Gala carpet was simply stunning. She radiated elegance in every step in the gown featuring designs of flowers, butterflies, and dragonflies, inspired by the theme of the event. The intricate gown was created using embroidery techniques like Fareesha, Zardozi, Nakshi, Dabka, and French Knots.

The look, styled by Anaita Shroff Adajania, was completed with matching earrings, a choker neckpiece, and hathphools.

Natasha PoonawallaPhilanthropist, socialite, and businesswoman, Natasha Poonawalla is no stranger to the world of high fashion and serving extravagant looks. And this year’s Met Gala was no different for this fashion queen. She chose a custom look from Maison Margiela’s Artisanal Collection designed by John Galliano, featuring a sculptured white strapless bodycon dress draped with sheer black torn chiffon detailing. She completed the look with a whimsical headdress, a puffy white beret.

She completed her look with custom-mad high platform heels from Christian Louboutin with a matching layer of black chiffon, large pearl studs, and a chic handheld bag.

Sudha Reddy
The Hyderabad-based businesswoman and philanthropist, Sudha Reddy made an elegant, royal appearance at the Gala, in an ivory silk gown designed by Tarun Tahiliani. The elaborate gown created by a team of 80 artisans over a period of 4500 man hours, featured delicate embroidery like French knots, 3D butterflies, and couching.

But over and above the regal gown, what stole the show was the ‘Amore Eterno’ necklace features 25 solitaires, totaling over 180 carats that she wore with the off-shoulder gown. Now thing to note is, while most personalities choose to borrow jewels from reputed jewellery houses to complete their looks, this piece was from Sudha Reddy’s family heirloom collection. At the core of the necklace was symbolic family tree crafted from four large, heart-shaped diamonds, surrounded by 21 luminescent round diamonds. Reddy also wore a 20-carat heart-shaped diamond ring and a 23-carat yellow diamond ring to complete the look.
