Dua Lipa’s Met Gala is already being hailed the 'craziest pull’ of the night, after she rocked up wearing Chanel couture and some VERY expensive diamonds.
The Met Gala is one of the biggest events in the global celeb calendar - or rather, the red carpet is, as that's where they get to show off their wildest and most glamorous looks before making their way inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
The white dress is made from Chanel’s signature tweed fabric, with a corset bodice, black trim and fringing at the hem.
It was originally worn by German supermodel, Claudia Schiffer, in the early 90s, but now it's back in the limelight thanks to 27-year-old Lipa.
Commenting on her look on Twitter, one fan said: "OH MY GOD THE CRAZIEST PULL AND OFC IT’S DUA LIPA!!"
Someone else agreed: "Craziest archive pull from Chanel Fall/Winter 1992 Couture. LOVEEE."
Another wrote: "Dua Lipa carried the Met Gala."
A fourth joked: "Can we take a moment and appreciate how Dua Lipa’s #metgala dress has POCKETS?? a win for feminism."
The star accessorised her look with a statement Tiffany diamond necklace she said had never been seen before in public.
According to Harper's Bazaar, the piece is the Lucida Star Necklace - worth more than $10 million.
The outlet explained it is 'reset with a diamond that mirrors the proportions of the world renown Tiffany Diamond, one of the largest yellow diamonds in the world', and features over 100 carats of 'brilliant cut white diamonds'.
Speaking to Vogue on the red carpet, Lipa said: "This dress is a very special dress. It's a 1992 Fall bride dress – Chanel, by Karl, of course.
"And it’s been on my moodboards forever. When the opportunity came I was just like, ‘Is there any way I can find this dress?’"
She said Chanel then allowed her to borrow it for tonight, adding: “It’s a big dream come true for me.”
Speaking about her necklace, Lipa went on: “This is a very special Tiffany necklace. It hasn’t been seen before so I feel excited to showcase it here today. They pulled it out the vault for me!”
