Dree Hemingway's Bowie infused Met outfit
Dree Hemingway paid homage to David Bowie with her outfit to the 2015 Met Gala.
The 27-year-old model stunned at the event in New York on Monday night wearing a gorgeous black gown by Coach. It featured Swarovski crystals, a sheer panel over the chest and a see-through skirt with black squares.
While it didn't necessarily fit the China: Through the Looking Glass theme, the addition of a leather vest with the words 'China Girl' emblazoned on the back made an impact. It was inspired by Bowie's track of the same name, with Coach creative director Stuart Vevers revealing it was Dree's suggestion.
"Throwing a David Bowie reference into Dree’s outfit was very jolly. It was Dree’s idea,” Stuart grinned to style.com.
Dree wanted to “think out of the box and create a new take on China" and completed her look with a pair of sheer black pumps, burgundy lips and simple wavy hair.
Her stylist Cher Coulter also played a part in the finished outfit, revealing that she had great fun breaking the boundaries at the fashionable event.
“The Met ball is rarely a stylist’s playground. It’s more of a designer-and-muse collaboration," she gushed. “Dree was full of creative ideas. I got very into the jewellery after she referenced films such as Cry-Baby.”
Cher posted a photo of Dree and Stuart posing on the red carpet onto her Instagram, thanking them for being involved with the dressing process.
Dree also shared some snaps online, with one picture showing her standing with her back to the camera to reveal the emblazoned vest.
"I'm a mess without my little China Girl [email protected] (sic)" she wrote.
