The Girl Recognized Her Grandmother’s Blanket When She Saw ASAP Rocky at the Met Gala
The 2021 Met Gala Costume Institute Ball took place in New York two weeks ago, and the extraordinary story of the outfit of the rapper ASAP Rocky has surfaced just now. In social networks, people joked that the musician took to the red carpet in his grandmother’s blanket, but who knew that it is true.
ASAP Rocky and Rihanna became one of the main stars of the last Met Gala. While the singer was wearing an outfit from Balenciaga, the rapper appeared on the red carpet in a coat from the American brand ERL.
It turned out that behind the unusual apparel, more like a multi-colored blanket, lies an incredible story. A few days ago, an Instagram user wrote that the ASAP Rocky coat used to be really a blanket that her great-grandmother made.
Some commentators asked for the brand to mention her great-grandmother’s commitment, but the girl replied that she was just happy to see the work on the red carpet.
ERL designer Eli Russell Linnetz acquired a vintage blanket from a thrift store, and together with Zachary Foster used it as the basis for ASAP Rocky’s look. Foster also showed the process of working on the blanket on Instagram and mentioned that he would like to know the name of the creator of such a beautiful design. However, the craftswoman was found after the Met Gala.
