If there are larger-than-life chandeliers and shapeshifting, four-in-one dresses slowly making their way up the Met stairs, what’s one to wear to all of the afterparties? Some doubled down on the theme last night at the gala, like Katy Perry who transformed into a hamburger (what else!). Solange and New York singer Princess Nokia set a more subtle standard for others to follow with their post-gala party looks from a few days earlier.
Following Performance Space's Spring 2019 Gala, which Solange hosted, the two posed sweetly side-by-side in similarly skin-baring looks that conveyed a joyful, campy spirit. Solange attended the Met in a thigh-grazing custom snakeskin Ferragamo romper—she even handled a little python for a brief moment on the red carpet—and her party look was just as playful, with a strappy fishnet skirt that revealed her black underpinnings.
Nokia on the other hand, went full mermaid in a semi-sheer, sequin Discount Universe gown that had “Not For Sale” in big red lettering spelled out across the midriff. The cowrie shells braided into her hair were a nice touch, too. In a sea of meme-worthy ensembles, Solange and Nokia were unsuspecting fashion sirens in their own right.
