Sudha Reddy Representing India at Met Gala 2021

Dear Readers,

Dazzling our cover in this issue is the glamorous Sudha Reddy, who I have really enjoyed being with during her entire Met Gala journey! I truly admire how calm and composed she has been throughout, even under periods of pressure. While she was here, not only did Sudha win the hearts of  New Yorkers with her style and taste, but was even complemented on by Anna Wintour on her Met Gala appearance. India’s sole representative at the Gala, Sudha looked eye-catchingly glamorous in a Falguni & Peacock gown complemented by a Judith Leiber Ganesh clutch and a custom-designed ear cuff by Farah Khan. To learn more about her inspiration, excitement and experiences first hand do go to our cover story.

To the untrained eye, the Met Gala, aka fashion’s biggest night, might seem like any other red carpet. But the unique meeting of fashion, celebrity, and dramatic themes make this night more interesting than other movie premiere or awards shows. After a hiatus of almost two years, this year’s Met was themed around American Independence, and like always, everyone interpreted the theme differently. Catch up on all the ‘fashion’ talking points from the night in our Feature Story.
