According to Wes Gordonit is the cutouts that make the dress Shakira is in his image. If you watch any of his music videos, “Hips Don’t Lie” has “Whenever, Wherever”, you will see that the singer usually wears sexy outfits. It’s a bias that suits him and delights his audience – by strategically revealing a few parts of his body, we can better see the intricacies of his (incredible) dance moves. “She focused on the smallest details of the cutouts, on the impact points and on the neckline” explains the creative director. “It’s amazing to work and do fittings with someone who is a physical artist, because their sensitivity to movement and body awareness is truly extraordinary.”

Wes Gordonwho has dressed many celebrities at the Met Gala over the years, from Karlie Kloss has Adut Akechalso wanted to ensure that Shakira made a fashion splash during this evening where silhouettes, each more extraordinary than the other, multiplied, especially since it was the first time that she participated. His workshop therefore created a draped cape in the shape of a rose which adorned the artist’s shoulders. (The flower was an appropriate motif: it is not only a house code of Carolina Herrerabut also a pink hat Philip Treacy dating from 2000, presented in the exhibition “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion”, an emblem of the Met Gala 2024). One of the modelers of Wes Gordon studied sculpture, which adds an artistic element to the design.

“The line I always try to walk at Carolina Herrera is between modern and clean, and dramatic and glamorous. I think this piece achieves that through the dress and the cape,” he adds. And if we are to believe the noise the crowd made when they saw Shakira getting out of the car to head to the 2024 Met Gala, they both hit the right note.
