Ariana Grande made her very first red carpet appearance almost a year after the tragic bombing at one of her concerts in Manchester. The singer was in attendance at the Met Gala last night, and during an interview, she stated that she really is ‘grateful to be back.’
Ever since the attack, which killed 22 people and injured over 500 took place, Ariana has kept a pretty low profile.
But now that she is getting ready to release a brand new album, Grande is returning to the spotlight.
In addition to that, she performed at Coachella and even co-hosted The Tonight Show alongside Jimmy Fallon not too long ago.
‘Oh my god, it is a gift, and it is a joy, and I am so grateful to be back,’ she went on during one of her interviews last night.
This year’s Met Gala had a very interesting theme – ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,’ and it is safe to say Ariana delivered!
The star looked stunning in a white dress that was emulating the famous Sistine Chapel ceiling.
The gown was designed by none other than Vera Wang, who even accompanied Ariana on the red carpet.
‘I am feeling great – this is my first Met. I am very excited, and I am so happy to be beside Vera! And to also be wearing the Sistine Chapel back-wall by Michelangelo and it is the Last Judgment, and I am excited because it is beautiful and Vera is the best,’ she gushed.
The famous designer then explained how the impressive gown came to be.
‘Ariana wanted a reference to religion, but she did not want to be literal – hence the beautiful headpiece she is wearing. It is a total riff off religion but in the most stylish, fashion-forward way. And, she is young and beautiful and can wear anything!’
