Naomi arrived at the 2021 Met Gala in a custom Louis Vuitton outfit, featuring a purple and blue swirl-print gown with a sweetheart-style neckline and an elaborate black ruffled cape, reported People magazine.
She amped up the drama quotient by pairing it with black boots and an elaborate hairstyle, accented with red sparkles.
During the Vogue livestream, event co-chair Naomi said her older sister Mari Osaka, who recently retired from tennis, helped design the look along with Louis Vuitton's Nicolas Ghesquiere.
"We both really love fashion and we love designing," Naomi said, adding that they paid homage to the theme of the night (In America) by representing her heritage.
"For me Americana kinda means a mix of all cultures and this dress and this look kind of represents my two backgrounds, Haitian and Japanese, so I was really glad I was able to incorporate it," she added.
