Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt marked her Met Gala debut this year and fan are still raving about her dreamy look. The actress opted for a Prabal Gurung outfit and slayed the theme 'Karl Lagerfeld: Line of Beauty'. Her pictures are still flooding social media and now the ace designer Prabal has taken to his Instagram handle and shared anecdotes about how he first met Alia. He also talked about inviting her earlier for the event.
Sharing their picture together, he wrote, "It was my dearest friend Karan Johar’s 40th birthday in Mumbai, where I first met Alia. I had heard rave reviews about her through him and my brother Pravesh, who was assisting Karan in her debut film. I was immediately taken by her when I met her. A petite ingénue whose simmering fire within her was palpable to all of us. One film after another, she has surpassed anyone’s expectations and thrilled us with her creative genius. She’s a powerhouse performer. To me, she is one of the finest actors we have right now globally, but above all, she’s a friend, a good friend, and a loyal one; that’s what makes her extremely special."
He further added, "we’ve talked about a Met moment for a long time. I have invited her before, but she’s always been wise enough to say let’s wait. This time however, she felt it was the right moment, so she said yes and off we went to our wildest imaginations along with Anaita to create a homage to Karl that celebrated her heritage (100,000 pearls hand embroidered in Mumbai), my love for Karl ( he is my master, and yes he did give me my CVFF award 😊) and all made in New York. For me, Chanel couture brides have been the most iconic brides in fashion. So we chose Claudia Schiffer's 1992 Chanel bridal look as an inspiration. And the rest is history."
He concluded by saying, "Alia, forever grateful we will have this for posterity. Thank you for the beautiful memory. Been a fan of your talent for the longest time and of your generous, kind soul and heart; a grateful friend. Here’s one for the books."
Meanwhile, Alia Bhatt's Hollywood debut film 'Heart of Stone' will be released on Netflix this October.
