Dubbed "Fashion Awakening Night," Kendall Jenner showcased her flair for vintage fashion by donning a curated collection of Alaïa and Mugler pieces. However, for the 2024 Met Gala, Jenner revealed her long-held desire to wear an Alexander McQueen design. Delving into the archives of Givenchy, the model unearthed a stunning ensemble. Crafted from nude and black tulle, the dress boasts an intricate array of over 100,000 black and bronze beadings and sequins, meticulously hand-embroidered over 500 hours. Beyond its labor-intensive craftsmanship, the gown's cut-out waist, collar, and sculpted shoulders elevate it to the status of a veritable masterpiece. This particular dress, which had remained dormant for 25 years, evokes the essence of a "sleeping beauty." Notably, Jenner's choice marks the first time a design from Alexander McQueen's Fall-Winter 1999 collection for Givenchy has been brought to life, as the collection had previously only been displayed on mannequins and never publicly showcased.
