Journey of the Dress: Alicia Keys and the 2019 Met Gala from Carolina Herrera on Vimeo.

Join us inside the atelier as creative director Wes Gordon and our incredible team of artisans create the gown for Alicia Keys to wear to the 2019 Met Gala.  Designed and hand-crafted in New York, the gown was created in close collaboration with the musician.  Inspired by Grace Jones, Alicia opted for an elegant look of high camp: her gown was a nod to some of Grace’s more iconic hooded looks while highlighting Alicia’s natural beauty.  One for minimalism, Alicia styled her gown with a diamond necklace from Tiffany and a scattering of cocktail rings.
