“I’m wearing Vera Wang tonight. We had the idea of me coming as a reimagined Statue of Liberty, having a book as she does with a line from the poem the Statue on it,” Gorman told the outlet, adding of her silver headpiece, “And I really just wanted to wear a laurel crown because that’s really important in poetry.”

As for what tonight’s Met Gala theme means to her, Gorman continued, “Tonight’s theme, for me I really looked at it as a night where we can come together as a country and celebrate one of the things that makes us so beautiful, which is our diversity, which is all the different forms of people showing up tonight. So that’s really what I’m here to take part in.” Gorman is co-chairing this year’s Met Gala alongside Timothee Chalamet, Billie Eilish and tennis pro Naomi Osaka.
