Dresses worn by two Grammy Award winning pop stars at coveted New York City events will be featured in an upcoming Kensington Palace exhibit.
Scheduled to open at the State Apartments at Kensington Palace in London on April 5, the “Crown to Couture” collection will feature more than 200 hundred objects alongside fashion-forward frocks recently worn by Lady Gaga and Lizzo.
Historic dresses from the Georgian era believed to be worn by high society women will be presented alongside more modern looks and designs to show how the older styles influenced modern fashion.
One of the outfits Lady Gaga wore during the first virtual MTV Video Music Awards in 2020 has been chosen for the show. Fashion designer Christopher John Rogers created the voluminous green ball gown the New York City-born singer accentuated with an ornate Lance V Moore face mask.
The Thom Browne number Lizzo owned on the red carpet during her impromptu flute performance is also included in the exhibition. The “About Damn Time” singer wore the black corseted dress with an ornate embroidered black and gold cape at the 2022 Met Gala, which was held at the the Metropolitan Museum of Art in May.
