Who’s Missing At The MET This Year?

priyanka chopra at met gala - the reel stars

The MET carpet is officially closed for the year & we, like every fashion enthusiast who was
incessantly scrolling through Instagram for MET Carpet updates, are taking it all in. As Diet
Sabya would classify, some (a handful) looks ate & some (many) chop. Flashes worshipped the attendees who were dressed for the biggest night in fashion, trying their best to get the look on point with the theme “The Garden of Time”. Year after year, the growing representation of India at global annual benefits such as The MET Gala has made us desirous to see many more Indian celebrities. Isha Ambani, Natasha Poonawala, and Sudha Reddy are Indian socialites who have walked the MET carpet repeatedly. Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Deepika Padukone & Alia Bhatt are Indian celebrities who have made multiple appearances in the past & have vowed the fans. But who was missing at the MET this year?

PRIYANKA CHOPRA JONAS

Our very own desi girl missed the MET this year, she had earlier cited filming reasons & it
surely disappointed her fans globally.
When she first made her MET debut in a Ralph Lauren trench coat dress, she broke the
internet. Fans hailed her as the QUEEN and she soon became the MET MEME. It is a
fashion game; you win some & you lose some & she won big by marrying Nick Jonas her
MET partner. 
For the second time, she was dressed in Ralph Lauren again & it vowed the fashion critics.
she looked absolutely ethereal. 
When the MET theme is CAMP, you gotta have fun & she sure knows how to have fun. Her
look by Dior was a glorious blast of colours from her outfit to her makeup & she had a crown
on her head too. Well, she is a former MISS WORLD, so she’s used to crowns.
Her last MET appearance so far was scored well also, there was drama even though it was
a black-and-white ensemble. Her look was complete with swoon-worthy jewels (Why not,
she is the face of Bulgari globally).

DEEPIKA PADUKONE

With her statuesque persona & infectious smile, Deepika is always a treat to watch on the red carpet. No wonder she leads the pack when it comes to being the face of many global brands. She was a vision in white, dressed in Tommy Hilfiger for her MET debut. The diamond headpiece dazzled as much as her smile.

It was not very theme-appropriate for the year i.e. Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between, but no one seemed to notice (except for Rihanna. Oops. Rihanna posted a picture of Deepika stating this is how you should not dress for the theme). Deepika was dressed by Prabal Gurung in a deep crimson hue for her second MET. The sculpted gown is meant for a supermodel & who better than DP to make this work, she made this look like it was no big deal. The third time’s a charm & charming she was. For her third appearance, Deepika wore a Zac Posen creation & it was nothing short of magical. The dreamy gown, the exaggerated hair, the makeup; it was all on point. She gave us Barbie vibes (harden than, dare we say, Margot Robbie gave in the entire Barbie press tour).

With the theme this year, we expected to see more Indian celebrities & more Indian designers showcasing India’s talent wrapped in sartorial heritage & techniques. 
Nonetheless, we are happy to see Indian representation in style & are sure (or can hope) to see many more in the future.

Ikisvon Jamang is a Testament to the Impeccable Style of Northeast India

Published

model ikisvon jamang - the reelstars

It’s not often that we come across someone with fearless style and creative ingenuity. But, Ikisvon Jamang is exactly that and more! We can’t help but agree (strongly) to Grazia India‘s inclusion of her in the list of creatives to watch out for in 2024. And we’ll tell you why! 

From the hills in Manipur to high-fashion in Delhi:

Ikisvon (IKI to her friends and followers), comes from a small town called Ukhrul in Manipur. Considering the fact that many people have never even heard of that little corner in the northeast of India, this girl has come a long way from home! And she’s made her presence known, loudly at that.

In an interview with Vogue India, this model/creator shared how her interest in clothing came from her visits to her aunt in her hometown. Watching her aunt dress in style inspired by Korean and Harajuku fashion, piqued her interest as a little girl too. Her own style has evolved over the years and she always goes beyond the norm of following the usual trends. Now based in New Delhi, she’s actually a very well-known creator in the fashion scene there. 

Her journey hasn’t been without its challenges. Growing up with insecurities about her appearance, Ikisvon battled self-doubt before embracing her unique identity. It was fashion that became her armor, allowing her to express herself confidently. Over time, she’s learned to express herself uniquely through her style and it’s clearly visible to anyone who follows her on Instagram. Ikisvon’s style is a captivating blend of street-style edge and timeless glamour. 

Creative collaborations, recognition as a force of fashion:

In the last two years, recognition for her talent has poured in from all corners. Grazia India named her one of the creatives to watch out for in 2024, recommended by stylist Edward Lalrempuia. She’s also a model who has graced the ramp for prestigious fashion shows like Lakmé Fashion Week. At this year’s show, she walked for Deme by Gabriella Demetriades. Aside from modelling, her influence as a creator is undeniable, as evidenced by her collaborations with renowned brands like Gentle Monster and H&M. Ikisvon was awarded the Fashion Influencer of the Year (Editor’s Choice) at the Cosmopolitan India Blogger Awards 2024. Last year, she was also awarded at the second edition of Vogue India’s flagship event, Forces of Fashion.

Beyond her stunning looks, Ikisvon Jamang is a vocal advocate for self-love and body positivity. She uses her platform to inspire others to overcome their insecurities and embrace their true selves. With her infectious energy and unwavering belief in her dreams, she continues to break barriers and redefine the standards of beauty in the fashion industry.
