You can buy Halsey, Katie Holmes and Nicki Minaj’s 2019 Met Gala looks

The Met Gala is fashion’s biggest night of the year, with designers working for months to create jaw-dropping gowns for celebrities to wear for just a few hours on the museum’s steps.

But anyone with deep enough pockets can own the dresses worn by Katie Holmes, Camila Mendes, Nicki Minaj and more to Monday’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion”-themed ball.

While the aforementioned celebs’ Prabal Gurung and Zac Posen looks were custom-designed with 2019’s flamboyant theme in mind, the designers are working with fashion retailer Moda Operandi to produce them en masse — but they don’t come cheap.

Holmes’ purple Posen gown, for example, retails for $12,990 and features 300 yards of multi-layered, hand-sewn tulle; its Zac Posen x GE Additive x Protolabs collar, shaped like palm leaves, takes more than 56 hours to 3D-print.

Minaj, meanwhile, wore a pink Gurung gown inspired by King Louis XIV that is now available for $49,995. The double-faced satin strapless dress includes hand-embroidered chandelier crystals and a silk taffeta tiered bouillon train and sleeves.

The most expensive look, however, was worn by Indian actress Deepika Padukone. Maxing out at $75,000, the pink jacquard strapless ballgown was custom-made with 408 Zac Posen x GE Additive x Protolabs plastic embroidery pieces, which took over 160 hours to make.

Also available from Zac Posen are “Ozark” actress Julia Garner’s ombré lamé gown ($20,000) and director Gia Coppola’s chartreuse satin dress ($8,990). Gurung’s other offerings include “Riverdale” actress Camila Mendes’ yellow feather gown ($25,995) and outfits worn by Halsey ($19,995) and Instagram’s Eva Chen ($18,995), as well as by Victoria’s Secret models Candice Swanepoel ($33,995) and Joan Smalls ($22,795).

And, for just a fraction of the price, Lady Gaga fans can tote their “Joanne”-style fedoras in the Brandon Maxwell acrylic hat box ($2,495) the star posed with during her dramatic four-outfit entrance.
