Kaia Gerber Takes a Sheer Spin in Alaïa Illusion Gown at Academy Museum Gala 2022

Kaia Gerber brought sheer style to the 2022 Academy Museum Gala in Los Angeles.

Arriving to the occasion at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures on Saturday night, the model posed in a sheer-textured Alaïa outfit. Hailing from the label’s Spring 2023 collection, her Pieter Miulier-designed ensemble featured a black top with a turtleneck silhouette, as well as sleeves that draped across her hands. Paired with this was a dark mauve skirt in a similarly sheer texture, featuring central ruching with a tiered hemline to create a romantic silhouette. Together, the two pieces appeared synonymous, mimicking the silhouette of a long-sleeved bodycon gown.

When it came to footwear, Gerbe’s shoes weren’t visible beneath her gown’s long hemline. However, peeking beneath were what appeared to be a set of square-toed sandals crafted from black leather. Though the rest of the glossy pair could not be seen, it likely featured a heeled silhouette totaling 3-4 inches in height, similarly to other open-toed sandals and mules seen throughout the evening.
