Less than 24 hours after Simone Biles turned heads on the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet, the 24-year-old Olympian stepped up her fashion game for the 2021 Met Gala.
Biles attended the prestigious event on Monday evening in New York City, where she walked the carpet and stairs of the Met in a custom AREA x Athleta look designed by Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk of Area. She paired the stunning dress with statement earrings by Fred Leighton.
According to Bustle, the entire ensemble weighed approximately 88 pounds (which was evidenced by the fact that she had a whole team helping her carry the piece around the carpet) and took over 6,700 hours to make. Per The New York Times, the shimmering gown included more than 17,000 feet of Swarovski glass crystal chains and 200 feet of tulle. See the full look below.
