What was it like the first time you attended the Met Gala?

"It was in 2008. I was 17 years old and sooo nervous! I had never attended anything like that before and had no idea what to expect. I remember I cried the night before because I was overwhelmed. What if I trip, what am I going to talk about? Haha! I look back now and say to myself, 'Well you handled that well for being 17 years old.'”

What do you think of this year’s theme?

"I wanted to have fun with the theme. I wanted to recreate an authentic Commes Des Garçons look. Celebrate her aesthetic."

"We have been working on the dress for about a month. A sort of Commes De Geometric distortion."

How do you decide whose after-party you’re going to go to?

"I think I’ll swing by the Rihanna after party. Let’s see! You never know where the night will lead."
