COUTURE INSIDER | Kendall Jenner in a custom-made beaded gown by Givenchy Haute Couture for the Met Gala 2021

If you have always looked at those Red Carpet beaded gowns worn by top celebrities and wondered how they are made and what those little secret techniques are used to make them look flawlessly sewn, this Givenchy custom-made sheer gown worn by Kendall Jenner for the Met Gala 2021 has probably caught your eye.

Givenchy, one of the most well-known and influential designers of all time, has created iconic gowns over the years that have taken hundreds of thousands of hours to make. One of them is this iconic gown custom-made for Kendall Jenner.

Thousands of delicate crystals were hand-beaded into this very sheer, skin-toned fabric surface along the bodice and all over, down to the impressive floor-grazing train, creating a mermaid-like silhouette.

The neck is highlighted with an encrusted collar, and the shoulders are adorned with an impressive handmade decoration. To complete this sheer look, a skin-toned corset with panties is worn underneath.

This haute couture gown has been made using sophisticated couture sewing techniques.
