No, Bella Hadid Didn’t Black Out at the Met Gala

Bella Hadid is debunking claims that her custom Burberry corset at the 2022 Met Gala was so tight she blacked out.

A week and a half after the annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, the supermodel took to Instagram to make some clarifications after several articles about her Burberry look circulated online. Next to a screenshot of a headline suggesting Hadid couldn’t breathe because her outfit was too snug, she explained the miscommunication.

“This is not at all what I (meant to) say,” Hadid wrote. “I didn’t say I blacked out because of my corset. I joked that I blacked out, not because of my corset, but from the regular anxieties and excitement of the carpet.”

The mix-up came after her chat with Interview magazine editor-in-chief Mel Ottenberg, whom she debriefed on her Met Gala experience. In their interview the supermodel confided that her anxiety was through the roof while she was on the red carpet.

“I don’t think I was out there for more than three minutes,” Hadid said. “I don’t know if that was my anxiety, or maybe the waist was giving cinch and I couldn’t breathe. I mean, there were probably a lot of things happening.”

The 25-year-old’s last extreme Met Gala look—featuring another cinched look courtesy of Chrome Hearts and Gareth Pugh for the Catholic-themed 2018 affair—infamously left the star unable to comfortably walk. “If anyone was wondering why I couldn’t move it’s because a legend by the name of @jenatkinhair sewed a whole entire 10 pound veil to my head,” she wrote on Instagram. No, Bella Hadid Didn’t Black Out at the Met Gala
