Alia Bhatt decoded her exquisite look for the Met Gala 2024

Much like her look for the Met Gala debut last year, Alia Bhatt created a storm on the internet with her awe-inspiring look for the Met Gala 2024. She simply shed fairy vibes in a sheer saree featuring three-dimensional floral motifs all over it. Designed by the expertise of Sabyasachi Mukherjee, the highlight of her outfit was the 23-feet long train it carried, and the unique butterfly-styled blouse she paired it with. Later on, during an interaction on the red carpet, the diva decoded her look and credited the craftsmen for the handcrafted beauty that she wore. In her words:

“The sari's design, with its translucent, glass-like appearance is not just a nod to the ethereal quality of the garden in Ballard's story but also a tribute to the exquisite, enduring craft of sari-making. What drew me to this look was the sheer audacity of it—how it merges traditional craftsmanship with avant-garde aesthetics. Sabyasachi, known for his dedication to bringing old-world charm and modern sophistication together, seemed like the perfect choice to encapsulate the theme of this year's Met Gala.” 


Alia Bhatt paid a whopping Rs. 63 lakhs to attend Met Gala 2024?

For the unversed, a single ticket for attending the Met Gala 2024 is priced at 75,000 USD per person, which upon conversion becomes approximately Rs. 63 lakhs in INR. Moreover, the cost of an entire table at the Met Gala is USD 350,000, which comes to  about Rs. 2,92,00,000 in INR. According to a report by News18, it was stated that while huge companies and design houses buy tables for their guests, on the other hand, individuals have to pay for their own tickets at the Met Gala. Therefore, it can be assumed that Alia Bhatt must have spent a whopping amount of Rs. 63 lakh to attend the prestigious event.

Talking about Deepika Padukone, the diva had been an attendee of the Met Gala event back in 2017, which marked her debut. The diva surely made some major fashion inspiration on the red carpet of the event, that has been memorable for everyone. However, this year, despite rumours about her attending Met Gala 2024, Deepika Padukone wouldn’t actually be a part of it. While some speculations previously suggested that her first pregnancy might be the reason behind it, other reports claimed that, on the contrary, the diva’s tight shooting schedule for her upcoming projects coincided with the grand event, due to which she wouldn’t be able to make it.
