The 26-year-old “Boyfriend” singer and actress walked the Met Gala red carpet in a design from Iris Van Herpen.

The design incorporated a high neck, structured tassels, boning, and cut out detailing and was reinforced by a delicate laser-cut metal structure - fitted the Gilded Glamour dress code and allowed her to show a lot of skin.

The New York Times reported that the dress took a full 600 hours to make. 

“It plays into the theme of ‘Gilded Age’ in the way that it’s incredibly structured, all about shape, but it’s also honouring Iris’s unique vision,” Dove said via The New York Times.

“I’ve been able to live my life a little more out loud. I’ve shed some of my fear, and I’ve kind of created my own little world for myself as a human and as an artist.”

“This dress represents that,” she added. “It’s not hiding anything, it’s very bold, it’s very transformative,” she said.

2022 marked the first time Dove has attended the Met Gala.
