The singer wanted to "look like art," according to stylist Law Roach.
Singer Ariana Grande made her Met Gala debut on Monday night in a custom gown by Vera Wang. The look featured an allover print of the Sistine Chapel, which played to the night’s theme while also achieving stylist Law Roach’s vision for Grande “to look like art, a beautiful painting.”
“It was just all about romance with her,” shared Roach via phone just hours before the singer hit the carpet on Monday evening. “There is a bit of drama there, there is a silhouette that we are used to seeing her in but, of course, more elevated and more appropriate for the event. It is very recognizably Ariana Grande, for sure.”
The self-described “image architect” first saw the dress in person at a fitting with Grande on Saturday morning. Though it was Grande’s first time at the event, it wasn’t Law’s first time dressing a Met Gala first-timer. Last year, he styled Céline Dion in a custom Atelier Versace gown for her Met Gala debut.
