Gigi Hadid turns heads in a strapless white Prada gown and leather arm-length gloves as she attends star-studded Met Gala in NYC

She made her highly-anticipated runway return during New York Fashion Week, less than a year after giving birth to her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik.

And Gigi Hadid continued to wow as she made her grand arrival to the star-studded 2021 Met Gala in New York City on Monday evening.

The 26-year-old model slipped her slender physique into a white strapless Prada gown with a dramatic slit down the backside.

Poking out from under her gown was a black bodice and a pair of semi-sheer black tights.

The Vogue covergirl gave her Met Gala ensemble an edgy flair by throwing on a pair of black vinyl arm-length gloves.

Hanging from Hadid’s neck was a diamond choker that coordinated with her stud earrings and the glitzy barrette in her hair.  

Gigi’s auburn tresses were taken up a notch thanks to a lengthy detachable ponytail that hung down her back in voluminous curls.

She climbed the museum’s iconic staircase in a pair of sparkly kitten heels.

As for makeup, the runway maven accentuated her sultry gaze with some bold winged eyeliner and powder blue eyeshadow on her lids.

She muted her enviably plump pout with some matte nude lipstick and sculpted her cheekbones with a light dusting of contouring powder.

Speaking with Vogue, Hadid described her Met Gala look as ‘an ode to simple, well-made fashion.’

The Met Gala is finally back after being cancelled in 2020 amid the pandemic. This year it was pushed to September from its traditional slot on the first Sunday in May.

The theme is In America: A Lexicon of Fashion and the event features a heavy-hitting contingent of celebrity co-chairs: actor Timothée Chalamet, musician Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis star Naomi Osaka.

Honorary chairs for the evening will be designer Tom Ford, sponsor Instagram’s Adam Mosseri, and Vogue’s Anna Wintour.

At just 19, Billie will make history as the youngest ever co-chair of the prestigious event.

When the hosts were first announced, Vogue magazine said: ‘Each of the Met’s four co-hosts embodies the defining factor of American style: individualism.

‘[They have each] developed a distinct visual language for their public personas, one that is informed by the legacy of iconic fashion made in the USA.’

The must-have accessory for all at this year’s gala is a Covid-19 vaccine.

‘Currently, all attendees at The Met Gala on September 13 must provide proof of full vaccination and will also be expected to wear masks indoors except when eating or drinking,’ a spokesperson for The Met said last month. 

This year’s gala will be a more intimate affair, to be followed by a larger one on May 2, 2022. Both will launch a two-part exhibition, a survey of American fashion to be on view for almost a year.

In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, opening Sept. 18, will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the museum’s Costume Institute and ‘explore a modern vocabulary of American fashion,’ the spokesperson added. 

Part two, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, will open in the museum’s popular American Wing period rooms on May 5, 2022, and will explore American fashion, with collaborations with film directors, by ‘presenting narratives that relate to the complex and layered histories of those spaces.’ Both parts will close on Sept. 5, 2022.
