Met Gala outfit makes a splash Down Under
Just about anyone with an Instagram account became a (virtual) Met Gala fashion reporter last week, providing their own style critiques of the exclusive evening at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
Sydney designer and regular on the social scene Lillian khallouf model claimed Gigi hadid “stole his gaze” at the event. Dressed in custom Prada couture, Hadid was styled by celebrity stylist Mimi Cuttrell.
Khallouf released his own bridal design and compared it to Hadid’s Gala ensemble which placed the model on the world’s best dressed lists.
âWhen @gigihadid steals your gaze on #METGALA,â Khallouf captioned side-by-side images of herself and Hadid.
âThanks, @prada @mimicuttrell, I’ll take this as a major compliment,â she added.
There is no denying that the respective outfits share similarities, from the white column dress with a thigh slit at the back, to the full length black gloves and the pearl necklace.
Khallouf told Emerald City that she was flattered that her bridal look may have inspired Hadid’s costume.
âI don’t think Gigi or her team (stylists and designers) copied me, but I think there are some pretty obvious similarities between the two outfits,â Khallouf said.
âI was overwhelmed by the support of my friends and subscribers who shared their congratulations and enthusiasm with me. Cutrell did not respond to requests from Emerald City whether the red carpet look of his supermodel client was inspired by Khallouf’s designs.
Meanwhile, one of Australia’s biggest model exports barely made headlines for its appearance at the Met Gala.
South Sudan-Australian model Adut Akech Bior, who was crowned Model of the Year at the 2019 British Fashion Awards, wore a white Michael Kors suit with a diamond-encrusted crop top and an elegant mule hairstyle.
Phoebe Burgess is silent on her ex-husband’s SAS confession
All eyes were on the old NRL WAG Phoebe burgess like her ex-husband Sam burgess launched its campaign to rehabilitate its reputation on SAS Australia Last week.
Burgess’ high-profile recruitment for the reality show has raised eyebrows in some quarters, given his ugly separation from his wife for four years. Earlier this year, Burgess’ conviction for bullying his former stepfather, Mitch hooke, was quashed on appeal.
During his interrogation on SAS, Sam confessed to numerous indiscretions.
âI embarrassed my wife. I had had an affair with a girl, a woman in Melbourne. It’s true, âhe said.
âI turned to alcohol, drug use – I thought I could handle that. Then got shot [up on a] DUI with drugs in my system which was in the press again preventing me from seeing my kids again. I just signed up for drug rehab.
Sources close to Phoebe, who is based in the Southern Highlands, were skeptical of the timeline of events in Burgess. However, the social media influencer and mother of two kept a dignified silence over her ex-husband’s confession.
The only clue to Phoebe’s reaction was her Instagram story linking her 80,000 followers to the Legal Aid NSW booklet. A woman’s guide to regaining a healthy relationship.
The introduction to the booklet reads: âWe hope this sharing of information can help you on your way to building and maintaining a healthy relationship; a relationship based on trust, respect, positive communication, honesty and balanced power. . . The journey to regaining a healthy relationship is different for every woman; there is no right or wrong way – only your way.
While Burgess seeks forgiveness from the Australian public for his behavior, his ex-wife appears to be focused on healing.
Sam and Phoebe did not respond to Emerald City’s request for comment.
