Ice Spice’s Debut Met Gala Gown Has Cutouts From Head to Toe
After a meteoric debut on the music charts, Ice Spice made an iconic appearance at the Met Gala, too. The rapper attended her first-ever Met Gala red carpet on Monday night – reportedly by invitation from Anna Wintour herself – in a sparkling white Balmain gown that featured a train silhouette and sequin embellishments all throughout. Sheer, body-contouring cutouts adorned the floor-length dress, which highlighted her curves all while elevating her look with a more sultry flair. She also capped off her sophisticated ensemble with a glitzy Effy Ring and Archive Diamond Earrings to match.
Marissa Pelly styled the rapper for the affair and has been the creative force behind a number of Ice Spice’s showstopping outfits this season. Ice Spice swapped her signature orange curly locks for a glossy, slicked-back hairstyle that shined beneath the carpet’s beaming lights, and she went with a minimal beauty look – complete with light-pink nails, peach-colored lips, and a sharp cat eye.
Unlike some of the other skin-baring ensembles seen throughout the evening, the rapper opted for a more conservative silhouette that felt enchanting without being underwhelming. In true Ice Spice fashion, she also managed to make the red carpet her own by forgoing the need for a handbag or clutch and carrying around a bedazzled camera accessory instead – fitting, because who wouldn’t want to capture every moment of their first Met Gala? (Also, perhaps a nod to the trending social media joke that she never puts down her purse.)
Ice Spice has been making waves with her fashion choices this season. Earlier this spring, she donned a black-and-white optical illusion dress on the iHeart Radio Music Awards red carpet that was just as mesmerizing as her Met Gala ‘fit.
