Hailey Bieber proved she’s not just anyone tonight at the 2022 Met Gala, showing up dressed to impress! The 25-year-old arrived in a stunning, white satin halter gown with ethereal feather details on the dress train and shall. She accessorized the look with a gorgeous slicked back high bun and minimal jewelry, also wearing sheer black tights and black strappy heels.
While speaking with one of Vogue‘s co-hosts for the evening, La La Anthony, Hailey detailed her inspiration for the evening: the iconic Jerry Hall, aka one of the biggest models during her heyday in the ’70s and ’80s.
Hailey noted her dress how her dress was inspired by Jerry and that time of disco style and glamour — flowing dresses and fabulous embellishments and more is more. She also revealed the designer, Saint Laurent, which holds a specific place not only in ’70s/’80s history, but Met Gala history. For the 1983-84 show at the museum, then-head of the Costume Institute, former Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, decided to tribute Yves Saint Laurent in the exhibition “Yves Saint Laurent: 25 Years of Design.” It was the first time a living couturier was honored at the museum — and it was a definite controversy at the time!
The look was different from last year’s simplistic style where the Hailey wore a plunging, strapless black (also Saint Laurent) dress which hugged her slim figure in all the right places. The dress was simple, but definitely sexy, and the influencer styled the look with a unique accessory: sleek black sunglasses. She also was decked out in Tiffany & Co. jewels, including her icy Tiffany & Co. Blue Book diamond necklace.
Meanwhile, she was joined by Justin, who rocked a black suit with white shirt and tie underneath. Justin pulled Hailey close so they could take photos together.
Hailey has been a regular at the esteemed fashion event of the year and has been turning heads ever since. She arrived at the 2019 gala in a blush pink custom Alexander Wang gown, with a surprising logoed G-string exposed in the open back. Hailey certainly turned heads that night, with a look that sincerely mimicked Marilyn Monroe in every way. This is Hailey’s seventh consecutive Met Gala since she first stepped onto the famed carpet in 2015. Fashion’s biggest designers, from Carolina Herrera to Tommy Hilfiger, love to see her wear their looks on fashion’s biggest night.
