When Olivia Rodrigo burst onto the scene final yr together with her breakout hit “Drivers License,” everybody’s consideration was firmly educated on her preternatural songwriting skills and her exceptional voice. And rightly so. Nonetheless, as she’s advanced in entrance of our eyes from a younger, precocious, and gifted singer-songwriter to a fully-fledged pop star, her model journey has additionally been equally joyous to witness. Similar to her musical references, Rodrigo’s style has blossomed into one thing that pays a heartfelt tribute to Y2K model, from novelty tees to sequin-spangled crop tops to platform heels and every thing in between.
Ultimately night time’s Met gala, although, Rodrigo went for one thing of a curveball, touchdown far exterior of her standard model repertoire. Carrying a excessive glamour, black lace catsuit by Saint Laurent with a flamboyant feathered neckline, she marked a brand new and altogether edgier chapter in her style journey. “I feel it’s actually enjoyable that I’m not sporting a gown to my first Met,” says Rodrigo in a behind-the-scenes video for Vogue. I simply assume it seems so rock ‘n’ roll and but so refined.” Teamed with a pair of vertiginous black heels and glittering drop earrings, it made for the night time’s boldest and most fun seems.
For Rodrigo, her selection of what to put on to the Met started and ended together with her admiration for Anthony Vaccarello as a designer. “I’m only a massive fan of [Vaccarello at] Saint Laurent,” continues. “Their garments are so punk rock and but female, and that’s one thing I all the time attempt to obtain in my style sense and my model in on a regular basis life. I all the time assume they’re pushing boundaries and doing actually cool issues, so I really feel actually fortunate to get to put on them to my first Met.” The one draw back to her excessive style look, it appears, was the shimmery purple manicure she utilized. “I by no means put on lengthy nails as a result of you possibly can’t play guitar with acrylic nails very nicely, however once I do I really feel so fancy,” Rodrigo provides, earlier than laughing. “I feel after tonight I’m going to wish a hamburger and fries.” Appears like the proper post-Met gala plan to me.
