Bollywood acting sensation, Alia Bhatt returned to the Met Gala carpet, sashaying in a floral saree by ace designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, who himself carved history by becoming the first Indian fashion designer to walk the coveted Met Gala carpet. In her second outing at the prestigious fashion gala, held annually at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the actor garnered spotlight with her elegant saree which extended into a 30-foot-trail. Alia Bhatt’s custom embroidered saree beautifully interpreted the theme of this year’s Met Gala – “Sleeping Beauty: Reawakening Fashion” with the dress code “The Garden of Time.”

“We looked to the past as a guide for the future, drawing inspiration from the timeless sophistication of Indian nobility. We focused on intricate craftsmanship, incorporating hand embroidery, and precious stones, along with elegant beadwork and fringes, distinctive of the 1920’s fringe style…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,” Alia shared about her outfit on social media.

Alia wore a sheer pastel-colored sari that “pays homage to nature’s beauty, echoing the earth, sky, and sea.” Her ensemble boasted of delicate floral motifs using “silk floss, glass beading, and semi-precious gemstones”.

Matching up to the theme of the event, Sabyasachi was seen dressed in an “embroidered cotton duster coat from the Sabyasachi Resort 2024 collection”. He completed his look with ‘tourmalines, pearls, emeralds, and diamonds from Sabyasachi High Jewellery.’

The Met gala, which fundraises for the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute, is reportedly known to have a secretive guest list. This year, Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Lopez, and Zendaya, are serving as co-chairs alongside Anna Wintour.
