10 Grimes – Elvish Fashion Gown

Grimes was a drummer to her own tune, as is evident by the fact that her baby names are her choices. The singer attended the Met Gala in 2021 solo, looking straight out of a videogame.

Her ethereal, elvish look was created by Iris Van Herpen. Herpen’s style was perfect for Grimes’ aesthetic. Herpen allowed Grimes to express her personality while keeping to the theme. A quick search on Van Herpen’s website will reveal that a single belt from her collection retails for $995. Grimes didn’t say how much it cost but it was most likely in the $5,000-$10,000 range, accessories included.
