Natasha Poonawalla chose to interpret Met Gala’s gilded glamour with ‘an Indian gaze that revelled in its multi-culturalism and authenticity’.
After her impressive Coachella fashion outing, Natasha Poonawalla made quite the statement at the 2022 Met Gala in a gorgeous sari designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
Sharing pictures on Instagram, the designer wrote: ‘For me the sari is a truly unique and versatile garment that owns its identity even as it transcends boundaries and geographies.
‘Back when I was a young fashion student, I often wondered when I would see the sari at big global fashion events like the Met Gala.’
For her appearance, Natasha chose a custom Schiaparelli hand-forged metal bustier and paired it with a custom Sabyasachi couture handcrafted sari.
The gold printed tulle sari was accompanied by a trail embroidered with silk floss thread and embellished with bevel beads, semi-precious stones, crystals, sequins and appliqued printed velvet.
Natasha’s accessories were a curation of custom pieces from Sabyasachi Fine Jewellery and limited edition collectibles from the designer’s Curiosity Art & Antiquity Project.
Christian Louboutin shoes and glasses by Anna Karin Karlsson provided the final touch.

The theme this year was In America: An Anthology Of Fashion, referencing the glided age of the late 19th century, which was a time of opulence, abundance and progress.
While she made people take note of India’s traditional attire, the sari, Natasha also chose to wear a gold corset which is symbolic of true renaissance in fashion.
