Yung Miami can give you rapper, host, actress, and most of all — high fashion.
Last night (May 1), the Florida native made her grand debut on the Met Gala red carpet. Holding hands with her date, Sean “Diddy” Combs, the 29-year-old stunned in a custom piece to honor Karl Lagerfeld. According to Vogue, Miami wore a gown with a “high, open, standing tulle bust, a sheer waist-hugging and seam-taped silhouette, and a dramatic cloud of dense Black tulle on the train. Pearl cords accentuate the hips.”
On social media, where users judge the gala’s fashion looks yearly, many were impressed by the City Girls artist. “This is how you debut on a Met Gala red carpet!” a Twitter user noted. “Yung Miami came for blood!”

The look drew inspiration from Lagerfeld’s creative direction at Chanel, known for its liking of Black and white colors and pearl beading. “I never would’ve expected Yung Miami to go to the Met Gala. I’m so happy,” a second user wrote.

But the “Act Up” performer didn’t stop the jaw-dropping looks on the gala’s live carpet. Afterward, the rising star emerged from her hotel in another ensemble paying homage to the late Lagerfeld. She attended an after-party glowing in a Chanel chain piece while rocking the brand’s logo in a matching hair updo. Like fans, fashion model Naomi Campbell was very impressed by Miami’s second look.
