This Video of Karlie's Met Gala Gown Being Slashed Is Oddly Thrilling

It’s not unusual for stars to switch looks when they go from a major red carpet to the after-party. What is unusual is to totally transform the same dress, but that’s exactly what Karlie Kloss did. For this year’s Met Gala, the model chose a cutout white gown by Brandon Maxwell. The custom piece featured a long, flowing skirt, but once the event ended, it got a major makeover. Kloss shared a video to Instagram of designer Maxwell cutting (yes, cutting) the dress into a mini. “This is a bad idea, or maybe it’s brilliant—I don’t know,” Karlie said. See the transformation below, judge for yourself, and then shop similar looks by Brandon Maxwell!
