Billie Eilish rocked the 2023 Met Gala in a stunning black, lace dress designed by Simone Rocha, a talented fashion designer from Dublin. The event, which was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on May 1, paid tribute to the late Karl Lagerfeld.

History and significance of the Met Gala – What is Met Gala?

Simone designed a custom gown for Billie using completely repurposed fabrics. The fragile tulle dress was edged with lace and adorned with hand-appliqued found lace, tinsel cotton tweed, and jet drips that were suspended from the body. The dress reflected emotions such as fragility, strength, and femininity, revealing what lies beneath.

Billie completed her Met Gala look with hand-beaded tulle gloves and stockings. She expressed her gratitude for wearing a dress designed by Simone, whom she regards as one of her favorite designers. Simone, on the other hand, designed the dress to celebrate Billie’s talent and powerful femininity. She interpreted embellishment as armor and transformed existing signature Simone Rocha fabrics into a tapestry of memories tied with black ribbons.
