Brooke Shields wowed at the Met Gala in a Blue Midi Dress
Brooke Shields is always looking chic on the red carpet, so when she walked the carpet at the National Board of Review 2023 Awards Gala on Sunday night, it’s no surprise that she wowed in a pink pencil midi dress. She paired the look with her signature long, loose caramel locks and glammed it up with pink cheeks and lips.
She’s got a style for every occasion, whether it’s a high-fashion event or a casual beach day with her family. She’s a fashionista and a mom, and she loves to embrace it all.
Her latest appearance was a blue lace gown she wore to the Met Costume Institute Gala, which was themed “Gilded Glamour.” She walked the red carpet with an unusual accessory: a cane! She smiled for photographers as she leaned her weight against the device.
While it’s not uncommon for celebrities to make a fashion statement on the red carpet, it’s rare for them to stand out in a way that’s truly out of the ordinary. That’s why Brooke Shields, who recently threw out her New Year’s resolution to “start fresh,” was the perfect person to wear this lace-embroidered number from J. Mendel.
She also teamed the lace-paneled number with her signature long, loose caramel locks and the classic smoky eye look she likes to sport. She finished the look with a floppy hat and matching shoes.
The actress looked like a Barbiecore goddess in the ethereal gown, which featured a small cutout on the midriff. She wore it with pink heels and kept her glam on point with glowy lip colors, which are the perfect shade of hot pink for the night.
It’s a look that she often sports for her daughter’s school events, so it makes sense that she would be comfortable wearing it to this glamorous gala. The dress features a crisscrossing neckline that gives it a flattering shape, but it’s the details on the skirt that give the dress its unique appeal.
As a young child, Shields had a sex-oriented childhood, and she made her acting debut at the age of 10. She starred in films like Franco Zeffirelli’s 1981 Endless Love, which featured an iconic love scene between Shields and the late Italian director. She was also featured in a series of Calvin Klein jeans commercials, which were criticized by many for promoting a sexualized image.
At age 13, she sat on the cover of Vogue, and at 15 she appeared as an adult in the Louis Malle film Pretty Baby. It was a career that saw her become one of the most prominent pre/pubescent stars of the 1970s and 1980s, alongside Jodie Foster, Britney Spears and the Olsen twins.
She also became a muse to filmmakers, including Louis Malle, who used her as the central character in his infamous 1979 film The Blue Lagoon. The film was a box office sensation, and Shields subsequently made her runway debut in a spring couture collection by Valentino.
