Nigerian-American designer/stylist Ade Samuel had a big win, or two, at the 2018 Met Gala which took place on Monday, May 7th.
Samuel, who has styled Kelly Rowland, Big Sean, Jhene Aiko, styled two Hollywood stars for the event, her first as a solo stylist.
Her first client was Michael B. Jordan who wore a custom made men’s Off-White suit.
Her second client was Letitia Wright who wore a custom Coach gown which Samuel says is Ethiopian Christianity inspired.

I can’t even begin to tell you about yesterday…. easily, one of the best days of my life!!! (which is why I decided to bask in the moment and soak it all in before my extreme posting session today lol) – MET GALA with not one but two clients who are heaven sent. This beautifully crafted ETHIOPIAN CHRISTIANITY INSPIRED masterpiece was made with much research and much thought behind every detail you see on the @coach CUSTOM gown. (Slide to see the inspo board) – it was super important to remain respectful to the culture. From the Ethiopian inspired braids (hair by @ursulastephen) to the ever so fresh and edgy makeup by (@tashareikobrown) – to the hand embroidered beading details- this was def one of my favorite looks ever and @letitiawright as usual is just breaking down doors and having fun as our Princess.
