Quannah Chasinghorse took our breath away at yesterday’s Met Gala. She hit the red carpet in a voluminous blue strapless tulle gown by Prabal Gurung, its plunging neckline edged in silver. She accessorized with eyeshadow of the same blue hue, traditional jewelry, and feathers in her hair.
Chasinghorse, whose heritage is Han Gwich’in and Oglala Lakota, shouted out bead artist and indigenous activist Lenise Omeasoo for the intricate necklace she designed for her for the biggest night in fashion.
Omeasso explained on Instagram that the piece was inspired by “our native communities.”
Watch the amazing creation video:
“Each beaded tipi upon her necklace represents her communities love and support,” the designer wrote. “May she inspire many and break countless more boundaries in the fashion world.”
“MAHSI’CHOO for this incredible piece,” she wrote below the post. “I walked the red carpet feeling seen and not alone this time! It’s an honor to be able to be here, represent, and showcase your talent/work!,” further hailing it as a “masterpiece.”
