AMAZING STORM REID IN PRADA AT THE MET GALA
Every year, celebrities attend the fashion industry’s most coveted event, the Met Gala. This year, the themed event was of course like no other as the stars showed up in their “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” outfit. Prada’s stunning red carpet was none other than Storm Reid.
The teen enthusiastically captioned an Instagram post thanking everyone who got her ready for the big ball, and her Cinderella moment was indeed magical.
“Baby Storm’s first #MetBall… thanks to my family @prada for this moment ❤️ Lots more to come. Love you @jasonbolden @paulyblanch @greg_gilmore @nailsbymei @maybelline for getting me ready !! ”
According to JustJaredJr.com, the 18 year old Euphoria The actress was dressed in a duchess Prada encrusted crop top and shorts fully embroidered with black crystals, paired with a burgundy duchess couture apron with candy pink marabou feathers. She accessorized black satin pumps, an alabaster pink Cleo brushed leather mini shoulder bag, black Prada Symbol earrings and a combination of Swarovski crystal and pink resin necklaces.
Storm was definitely ready as she “began [her] day at @ newbalance… finished it @prada. Stolen in New York, cut [her] hair and dye it blond (!!!) somewhere in between!
Before the gala, the Suicide Squad the actress recently sat down with intheknow.com to talk about his decision to embark on the next phase of college life. Take a look at a snippet of what she had to say below.
Elaine Welteroth: I have the impression that you are going to be in class with people who are going to be like “Yo, is that Storm? ” [Laughs] Is it stressful?
Storm Reid: It’s going to be so uncomfortable and embarrassing for me. Because even when I’m in public, I will totally forget. I’ll be at Target with my family, and someone will come up to me, and I’m like, “Oh, you know me? ” It’s very strange. I am grateful for it. But it’s just a new experience. It’s not like I’m one of those people who want to be recognized. Hope everyone at school is cool about it.
Elaine: So one of the reasons I love you, Storm, is because you are what I would like to call a student of life. Not only do you enroll in college and go off to learn more academically, but you’re usually a wide-eyed person who always absorbs everything around you and you maximize every moment. You fully show yourself. You get the most out of every room you walk into. And I like it about you. Where do you get your confidence and curiosity from?
Storm: Thank you for these feelings. I think everyone is thinking, “Oh, Storm is so confident. She got it all. But my favorite thing to say is, “I’m an 18-year-old who didn’t understand a thing.” Like day to day, I try to understand who I am, what I want to do. But I think it really started at home with the people around me continually pouring out at me, and not arrogantly, but letting me know I’m awesome. And I deserve to be in rooms, and I deserve to take up space, and do [a] change and create opportunities for myself and for others.
