It’s the first Monday of May, which means it’s Met Gala time–in case you don’t know, the Met Gala is an annual ball that serves as a glamorous event for high fashion designers and celebrities and it happens at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in NYC. The model and Earth protector made an appearance at the Met again showcasing her Native culture and heritage while donning a high-end designer gown.
For the evening’s “Gilded Glamour” theme, Quannah was a dream in a baby blue, floor-length gown from designer Prabal Gurung. The stunning number was complete with a strapless bodice and a soft layer of tulle.
The model accessorized her long hair with an eagle feather and wore a custom piece made by Antelope Woman Designs. AWD owner said in a social media post that the piece was inspired by our Native communities. “Each beaded tipi upon her necklace represents her communities love and support.” The custom design is created with dentalium shells, beads, and quillwork. According to this Facebook post, Shane Weeks supplied the feather and Wayne Duncan delivered it to NYC in time for the event, with actor and writer Ginew Benton presenting it to Quannah.
