Iman, 66, beams as she rocks a giant gold headdress on the Met Gala red carpet
Supermodel Iman looked radiant while taking the red carpet at the 2021 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Gala on Monday night.
All eyes were on the stately stunner, 66, as she modeled a giant feather headdress and crinoline, adorned with wispy gold and blonde feathers.
Her crown, which, like the rest of the look, was created by designer Harris Reed, spanned several feet and seemed to glow like a halo behind her.

Beneath the textured shell of her skirt, which also reached wide, Iman donned a shiny strapless jumpsuit in a gold brocade.
Continuing the glamour, she wore multicolored citrine and diamond pendant earrings from jeweler Fred Leighton, along with amethyst and vintage diamond cuff bracelets from Trabert & Hoeffer Mauboussin, circa 1935.
Iman’s vintage collection also included Fred Leighton Diamond and Yellow Gold Twist Cuff Bracelet from Boivin, circa 1930, and two beautiful rings.
Smokey eyes, bronze lips and rich caramel waves only boosted her shine.

The Somali-born beauty said she was immediately drawn to the look when approached by designer Harris Reed.
“He approached me and sent me this drawing,” she said of the half-British, half-American fashionisto, best known for dressing Harry Styles on his iconic Vogue cover.
“It felt really hopeful, a ray of light after all the darkness,” Iman continued.

The Met Gala is finally back after it was canceled in 2020 amid the pandemic and then suffered a double delay when it was pushed back from its traditional slot to September on the first Sunday in May.
The event – themed In America: A Lexicon of Fashion – features a host of celebrity co-chairs: actor Timothée Chalamet, musician Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis star Naomi Osaka.
The must-have accessory for everyone at this year’s gala is a Covid-19 vaccine.
“Currently, all participants at The Met Gala on Sept. 13 must provide proof of full vaccination and are also expected to wear masks indoors except when eating or drinking,” a The Met spokesperson said last month.
