Kaia Gerber has marked her first ever Met Gala appearance with an elegant ode to one of the fashion greats – Bianca Jagger. With this year’s theme being “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”, the model decided to pay tribute to one of the country’s most influential style icons of the last century.

Wearing a show-stopping black Oscar de La Renta ballgown with a corseted bodice and full floor-length skirt, Gerber served an homage to the queen of Studio 54 with one daring twist – a peekaboo bust.

While Jagger’s original Halston look – which she wore to the 1981 Met Gala event – featured similar detailing around the chest, Gerber’s iteration of the strapless gown featured a flash of bare skin.

Gerber continued the Old Hollywood glamour through to her hair and makeup, with glossy, side-parted finger waves shaped by legendary hairstylist Guido Palau. Makeup artist Nina Park kept Gerber’s face natural, with nude lipstick, Bambi lashes and groomed arches.
