The Met Gala 2019 took place yesterday and it was a star-studded event where celebrities from all over the world were seen walking down the pink carpet. There were many celebrities who made their first appearance and a number of many couple debuts on the carpet. The YouTube star Lilly Singh was one of such celebrities who made her debut to the Met event in her sensational pink Jeremy Scott ensemble, which made her look like ‘Lily.’ She even justified her dress while posting a picture on social media saying, “Since people always spell my name “Lily”…
I wanted a dress that represented me and who I am for my first #MetGalaand @moschino came through! For the hair, I wanted to pay tribute to them good Indian genes so I almost doubled the length of my regular hair with a long braid, topped with fresh orchids. And you better believe your girl is wearing sneakers under that dress. It was so surreal to attend this incredible event and meet so many talented people, as well as spend time with some friends I rarely get to see. Thank you for having me @vogue @youtube. I hope I did the fashunnnn.”
Taking to Instagram, Lilly also revealed how desperately she wanted to meet Deepika Padukone and she actually met her ‘Sister’ by knocking 6 chairs down by her dress. She posted a picture (finally) and wrote, “Searched the entire #MetGala, knocked over 6 chairs with my dress, got stepped on by 16 people and got a cramp… to find my sister @deepikapadukone and give her a hug. Worth it.”
Deepika Padukone replied to the picture that Lilly Singh posted of them and said, “the next time…just call! easier way to find me! love you Sista!” The love both the celebrity showed was a literal delight to watch. Both of them treated their fans with immense love at the event and did the same with each other as well.
