Tyla is carried down the Met steps in a dress made of sand

South African singer-songwriter Tayla could have been applying for a role in the movie “Dune” when she arrived at the Met Gala on Monday night wearing a cozy Balmain dress that made her look covered in sand.

The dress was so restrictive that two attendants in tuxedos had to carry the singer up the Met’s steps. “This is the only way I can get up these stairs,” she told one person. Access Hollywood Reporter.

The strapless dark brown dress — made from three shades of sand — had a structured bodice that spread across her chest like a shoreline. A soft dot indicated where her belly button was. More sand seeped through the hourglass she was carrying like a handbag.

Tayla, who broke out in the US last year with the song “Water”, was attending her first Met Gala. She told reporters on the red carpet that the look was inspired by the sands of time.

She wasn’t the only guest to go for a chronological look based on the party’s “Garden of Time” dress code: Sabrina Harrison wore a gold gown by Chrishabana, According to what she posted on Instagramwhich seemed to be dripping with twisted gold hours.

Olivier Rousteing, Creative Director of Balmain, Fogg said He created the garment in part because he was fascinated by traversing sand. “The idea of ​​sculpting a dress from something ephemeral like sand sparked my imagination,” he said. “And I couldn’t be happier with the end result.”

Tila (22 years old) added: “The idea was crazy.” “I love that either.”
