Addison Rae Shein Met Gala
Addison Rae and the Met Gala
There are many social media stars that are invited to attend the Met Gala, and it’s considered a major fashion event that raises money for the Costume Institute in New York City. However, a lot of people felt that it was a snub to the more established forms of celebrity. In addition, the seating plan for the event ruffled feathers, dividing the generations.
One of the biggest celebrities invited to the event was Addison Rae, a TikTok star with a large following online. She also partnered with fast-fashion company Shein to promote their new summer collection. Although it has been a successful partnership, Addison is facing backlash for her past actions.
Among the most talked about events that Addison Rae has attended is the Met Gala. This year, she donned a Gucci dress that was designed by 2003 Tom Ford. The dress resembled a Christmas dress that Kourtney Kardashian wore last year, though the color was a little different. It featured 11,000 mirrors in seven shades that were individually embroidered.
Addison’s gown was a big hit on social media. However, some people complained that she appeared to be stealing Kourtney’s look. At first, many thought that Addison’s dress was actually a borrowed dress.
After Addison’s dress was compared to her ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ (KUWTK) co-star Kourtney’s old Christmas dress, fans started to call out Addison. Many of them said that Addison was wearing the same dress that Kourtney wore to her family’s Christmas party, but she changed the color to red.
In addition, some people also criticized her for not crediting Black content creators. Addison did not mention any of the Black women who were involved in the production of her Instagram posts. Also, she did not include any photos of her black friends. These comments were not welcome on Twitter, but they were still a few months after the event.
Addison Rae is one of the biggest social media stars, with over 45 million followers on her TikTok account. Her followers are mostly young women. As a result, she was a natural fit for a partnership with Shein. Shein is a popular fast-fashion company that focuses on trendy, inexpensive clothes. They often partner with influencers to promote their products. Since Addison is a young girl, they thought she would be perfect for their audience.
When Addison Rae and Mason Disick met, they became friends. While they haven’t stepped on the red carpet together yet, Mason loves watching Addison’s TikTok videos. He even did a virtual workout with her.
As a result of her new partnership with Shein, Addison’s influencer status has gone up. She will be able to measure how many people are inspired to shop the Shein website after seeing her bio link. By doing this, Shein can learn how well its brand is being received.
Though Addison’s influence has been well-received at the Met Gala, she’s faced backlash for her appearance. Some people compared her to a Met waitstaff, while others were disappointed that she didn’t credit Black content creators.
