Isha Ambani walked the red carpet of Met Gala 2019 in US wearing a Prabal Gurung lavender couture gown.

Prabal Gurung while talking to a magazine revealed that a special person who is a friend and a mentor to Isha Ambani had a big role to play behind her Met Gala look. Gurung said that he worked closely with Isha in the entire process of finalising the outfit for her Met Gala appearance.

Gurung said that they started conceptualising Isha Ambani's look in winter 'began the fitting process just a few months ago'. The designer revealed that Isha had three fittings in India where a few changes with the color, fabric and overall fit had to be done. And the final fitting was in New York on Saturday, ahead of Met Gala on May 6. And guess who stopped by for that one? None other than Priyanka Chopra Jonas. 

Prabal said that Priyanka along with the entire team of Isha had 'a collaborative conversation on styling the accessories, hair and makeup to elevate the camp look.'

Talking more about Isha's red carpet look, Gurung told the magazine: “We’ve been working on this together for many months. With the camp theme, we wanted to celebrate the exuberance and essence of who Isha is. We chose to highlight her spirit through the glamorous silhouette and the intricacies of the hand embroidered feathers and beadwork. In keeping with the theme, we had a vision of Isha in a magical, dreamlike state and looked to the work of Degas’ ballet dancers, evoking an ethereal and romantic quality where the power of her femininity is heightened. We took a couture approach and played with the proportion of her skirt.”

Back in 2017, Isha attended the Met Gala wearing a Dior couture number for the “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” gala. Priyanka Chopra and Isha Ambani share a close bond and have been friends since years. Isha was also Chopra's bridesmaid and had joined the actress at her bachelorette party.
