The entertainment industry becomes one big stage at red carpet events. This year's Met Gala event was one such platform where actors from different countries walked the red carpet. It was also a special one for India. It was the time when two Indian actors, Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt, walked the Met Gala red carpet. But that's not all. People also saw a glimpse of saree at the event. It was American supermodel Naomi Campbell who turned up in a pink saree-inspired dress for the special night.

Naomi's dress was a take on draped saree with silver sequins. It was a rare Chanel archival look that featured a pallu, which was carefully draped over the supermodel's left shoulder. The gown also featured a slit at the back. Naomi completed the look with silver arm cuffs and metallic strappy heels.

This year, the theme at the Met Gala was 'Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty'. Lagerfeld, 85, died in 2019. He spent decades creating clothes for Balmain, Patou, Chloe, Fendi and Chanel in addition to his own namesake label.

Naomi, who has regularly made appearance at the Met Gala, is also a regular visitor to India. She first came to India in 1994 and since then, the supermodel has regularly visited the country, with her recent one in April 2023. Her Met Gala look speaks remarkably on this love that she holds for India.
