Selena attended the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Met Gala in New York City. This year’s theme celebrates the museum’s Costume Institute exhibition “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” which explores the intersection of haute couture and machine-made fashion.
Selena is wearing a bespoke Louis Vuitton dress from the Autumn Winter 2016 collection (not yet available). I can see why stylist Kate Young chose this dress – it does evoke fashion in an age of technology with it’s leather female-superhero-style bodice and stud work dress.
UPDATED 22 August 2016:
The Louis Vuitton V-Neck Fluid Silk dress £3,100 is now available (minus the customisation afforded Selena’s dress). A long, fluid dress in white gabardine twill with a satin effect, featuring a low V-neck and the collection’s signature tone-on-tone
Also available is the Louis Vuitton Soft Lambskin Bra £1,840. A lambskin bra-like top with contrasting white details. The back features tone-on-tone leather lacing, while a loop at the shoulder can be used to hold the thin strap of the collection ‘s dresses.
Selena’s high-gloss boots are also from the Louis Vuitton Autumn Winter 2016 collection (not yet available).
Selena is carrying a Louis Vuitton Cruise 15 Epi Leather Petit Malle in White (no longer available).
Selena’s bracelet is either from Louis Vuitton or from Cartier. I will update with details once I have received them!
