Addison Rae made quite the entrance during her very first Met Gala on Monday.

Addison’s curves were front-and-center in the frock, which featured flutter sleeves  and a scalloped corset-style bodice along with a figure-hugging skirt, low back and a small train. Strappy scarlet heels with platforms peeked out of the bottom.

Her sweeping caramel locks were gone and in place she had icy white tresses with dark roots and a razor-sharp, shoulder-skimming cut. 

Diamond drop earrings, along with layers of bangles and chunky rings gave the look another level of glamour.

Explaining why she went with Ford, the He’s All That star connected with how the designer ‘really loved to empower women and make them stand out.’

Though she looked poised as ever, Addison admitted she was ‘shaking in [her] boots’ during the A-list event.

The Met Gala is finally back after being cancelled in 2020 amid the pandemic, and then suffering a double-delay upon being pushed back from its traditional slot on the first Sunday in May to this September.

The event features a heavy-hitting contingent of celebrity co-chairs: actor Timothée Chalamet, musician Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis star Naomi Osaka.

Honorary chairs for the evening will be designer Tom Ford, sponsor Instagram’s Adam Mosseri, and Vogue’s Anna Wintour

The must-have accessory for all at this year’s gala is a Covid-19 vaccine.  

‘Currently, all attendees at The Met Gala on September 13 must provide proof of full vaccination and will also be expected to wear masks indoors except when eating or drinking,’ a spokesperson for The Met said last month. 

This year’s gala will be a more intimate affair, to be followed by a larger one on May 2, 2022.
