Leave it to Cara Delevingne to create a shock-and-awe style moment. The 25-year-old left little to the Catholic imagination when she stepped out at her seventh Met Gala Monday night in a dramatic all-black Dior Haute Couture ensemble.
Crafted with sheer lattice-patterned panels, Delevingne’s peek-a-boo Dior cage gown put her enviously toned “heavenly body” on display for all to see. (No hiding the Spanx in this number; Delevingne is actually wearing a $28 Commando bikini). But it was all modesty from the neck up for the actress-model, who added to the evening’s theme of elaborate head pieces with a bead-encrusted black Dior crown complete with a beaded veil that kept her face under wraps — possibly a nod to chapel veils or a fashion interpretation of the veiled secrets in the heard-but-not-seen Catholic confessional.
Sprouting from her crown was a shock of purple hair— Delevingne’s pixie cut was dyed lavender and the hue is associated with the Lenten season and Easter as a symbol of suffering and mystery. Her face was lit up with a smattering of golden yellow eye shadow on lids, brows and ears and a punch of bold fuchsia lipstick.
