The theme for this year's Met Gala, 'Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,' and the dress code, 'The Garden of Time,' set the stage for an enchanting display of creativity.

In a series of Instagram posts, Alia shared glimpses of her Met Gala experience, including a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of her exquisite ensemble.

The social media sphere buzzed with admiration as fellow celebrities and fans alike showered praise on Alia's stunning appearance.

Janhvi Kapoor exclaimed, "Insane insane insane," while Sophie Choudry described Alia's look as "ethereal."

Meanwhile, on the work front, Alia will be seen in Vasan Bala's 'Jigra', which is co-produced by Karan Johar and Alia herself. The film is all set to hit theatres on September 27, this year.
