Every year, celebrities turn out for the fashion industry’s most coveted event, The Met Gala. This year, the themed event was, of course, not like any other as stars turned out in their “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” attire. Stunning the red carpet in Prada, was none other than Storm Reid.
The teen excitedly captioned an Instagram post thanking all of those who got her ready for the big ball, and her Cinderella moment was indeed magical.
“Baby Storm’s first #MetBall… thank you to my @prada family for this moment ❤️ Much more to come. Love you @jasonbolden @paulyblanch @greg_gilmore @nailsbymei @maybelline for getting me ready!!”
According to JustJaredJr.com, the 18-year-old Euphoria actress was dressed in a Prada duchesse inlaid crop top and all-over black crystal embroidered shorts paired with a burgundy duchesse couture apron with candy pink marabou feathers. She accessorized with black satin pumps, an alabaster pink Cleo brushed leather mini shoulder bag, black Prada Symbole earrings, and a combination of Swarovski crystal and resin rose’s necklaces.
Storm was definitely ready as she “started [her] day in @newbalance… ended it @prada. Flew to New York, cut off [her] hair and dyed it blonde (!!!) somewhere in between!”
Prior to the gala, the Suicide Squad actress recently sat down with intheknow.com to talk about her decision to embark upon the next phase in life-college. Take a peek at a snippet what she had to say below.
Elaine Welteroth: I feel like you’re going to be in class with people who are going to be like, “Yo, is that Storm?” [Laughs] Is that stressful?
Storm Reid: That’s going to be so uncomfortable and embarrassing for me. Cause like, even when I’m out in public, I’ll totally forget. I’ll be at Target with my family, and somebody will come up to me, and I’m like, “Oh, you know me?” That’s so weird. I’m grateful for it. But it’s just a new experience. It’s not like I’m one of those people who is out to be recognized. I hope everybody at school is chill about it.
Elaine: So one of the reasons that I love you, Storm, is because you are what I would like to call a student of life. Not only are you enrolling in college and going off to learn more academically, but you are someone who is generally wide-eyed, always absorbing everything around you and you’re maximizing every moment. You’re showing up fully as yourself. You’re getting the most out of every room that you enter. And I love that about you. Where did you get that confidence and curiosity from?
Storm: Thank you for those sentiments. I think everybody thinks like, “Oh, Storm is so confident. She has it all figured out.” But my favorite thing to say is, “I’m a new 18-year-old that has nothing figured out.” Like day-to-day, I’m trying to figure out who I am, what I want to do. But I think it really started at home with the people around me continuously pouring into me, and not in a cocky way, but letting me know that I am great. And I do deserve to be in rooms, and I do deserve to take up space, and make [a] change and make opportunities for myself and other people.
