Kylie Jenner’s fierce and feathery Versace Met Gala gown might’ve turned out much differently, if not for the encouragement of her sisters. In a behind-the-scenes video released by Vogue on May 8, Kylie revealed her getting ready process, which included a last-minute moment of outfit indecision. Dramatic sleeves or a poofy feathered hat? Thanks to her sisters Khloé Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, Kylie took the plunge with the exaggerated sleeves to fit the night’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion” theme.
The Versace design team and Donatella Versace sent Kylie preliminary sketches of her gown four months before the Met Gala. After a few tweaks here and there, they settled on a second-skin crystal mesh design with purple detailing and ostrich feathers, which took 30 days to craft. On the day of the ball, the dress simply needed a little tightening – and for Kylie to settle on an accessory. Watch the full video below to see the process go down, and learn from Kylie’s meticulous attention to detail. After all, she’ll “never leave the house unless everything is perfect.”
