Grimes was a vision in futuristic silver at the Met Gala on Monday night (Sept. 13), rocking a Dune-inspired gown and enormous sword -- which was apparently made out of "fermented guns" -- to match her metallic mask.
The 33-year-old singer explained to Vogue that her custom body-hugging Iris van Herpen gown -- made of liquid silicone and hand-pleated silk -- was based on David Lynch's legendary 1984 adaption of Frank Herbert's 1965 sci-fi novel Dune. The film has been re-made with Met co-host Timothée Chalamet, and is due out on Oct. 22.
"We were working with the Dune movie people,” Grimes told the mag, explaining that the film's producers hired her as "a professional fan, or like, an influencer or something." But after they couldn't nail down anything official, she just kind of winged it and went her own, unofficial way.
