Tyla ‘makes people sweat’ at Met Gala

Mzansi’s very own Laura Seethal – known all over the world as Tyla, following her breakout hit Water – made a stunning appearance at the 2024 Met Gala, turning heads and rubbing shoulders with A-list celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Zendaya and Sabrina Carpenter.

Tyla dazzled at the event, showcasing her unique style. Her look – a skin-tight, floor-grazing Balmain hourglass gown in shades of cream – was one of the most attention-grabbing.

The dress was based on a cast of her body and then created out of three different colours of sand and micro-crystal studs to add sparkle to every minute movement the singer made.

Vanity Fair reports that Tyla had to be carried up the steps of the Met to protect the integrity of the fragile dress. Asked whether she’d be able to sit down during the event, she cheerfully proclaimed, “Who cares, guys, I’m cute!”

Harpers Bazaar reports that the singer switched out her signature bouncy curls for a sleek, layered bob.

She kept her accessories minimal for the evening, opting for a lone silver diamond choker and a clear hourglass-shaped clutch, nodding toward this year’s gala theme, “The Garden of Time.”

Ahead of hitting the carpet, Tyla told reporters her gown was inspired by “the sands of time”
