Highlights of the MET Gala 2024: Alia Bhatt rocks a sari, Zendaya wins with two red carpet looks

Met Gala 2024: Alias ​​IG Post

Alia Bhatt posted her pictures from the Met Gala on Instagram and wrote a long caption about her look. “It was a call to the garden of time – an ode to art and eternity. Timelessness is endless and we know that things crafted with time and care can last forever. In our quest to create an Indian interpretation of this universal theme, the outfit took on a life of its own. Nothing embodies tradition and innovation like the sari; in the skilled hands of @sabyasachiofficial this vision found its fullest expression. Looking to the past as a guide to the future, we took inspiration from the timeless elegance of Indian nobility.

“We focused on intricate craftsmanship, incorporating hand embroidery, gemstones, and elegant beading and fringe, characteristic of the 1920s fringe style. Our color palette pays homage to the beauty of nature, reflecting earth, sky, and sea. We embraced a delicate nostalgia for hair and makeup – an elevated hairstyle embellished with intricately woven braids and soft freckles – a tribute to the gentle caress of time.

“Creating this was quite an experience… fun and stressful in equal parts. It took the collective effort of 163 dedicated individuals including master artisans, embroiderers, artists and dyers who put in a total of 1965 hours of work to create this ethereal sari. As I wear this outfit, I feel incredibly grateful to embody this exquisite creation, a testament to boundless love and meticulous work. A huge thank you to @anaitashroffadajania, @lakshmilehr, @puneetbsaini, @amitthakur_hair, @dollyjain and my amazing team for their wonderful collaborations in this 'Garden of Time'. Teamwork makes the dream come true,” she wrote.
