Emily Ratajkowski dipped into the Versace archives for her daring 2022 Met Gala look.

The model and My Body author arrived at the red carpet with an interpretation of Gilded Glamour that leaned heavily on color, cutouts, and throwback edge. The look came courtesy of Versace, circa 1992. Key details included a skin-baring, beaded bodice folded into a high-low skirt. She accentuated the revealing dress with a high bun—the better to show off the neckline.

Ratajkowski’s dress was last worn by model Yasmeen Ghauri on a 1992 Versace runway—making its Met Gala reappearance a moment around three decades in the making. “I feel very lucky to be wearing this look,” Ratajkowski said on the carpet.

This year, Ratajkowski’s look carried another layer of significance: The Met Gala fell on designer Donatella Versace‘s birthday. Ratajkowski teased her look for the evening in a birthday tribute to the designer on Instagram Stories. “Happy birthday to the queen,” she captioned a photo of Donatella. “I am honored to know you.”

Ratajkowski has shown an affinity for dramatic trains and cutout details on the Met Gala carpet, no matter the theme or dress code. For the 2021 event feting the first half of the “In America” exhibition, subtitled “A Lexicon of Fashion,” she wore a skintight Vera Wang gown with red lace and a long train, inspired by Wang’s bridal collection. At the 2019 Met Gala, for “Notes on Camp,” Ratajkowski opted for a Dundas dress with an exposed midriff and battle armor headpiece.

Even with all those Met Gala experiences, Ratajkowski admitted to Vogue livestream host Vanessa Hudgens that she still felt a bit nervous for the evening’s event. But she’s worked on altering her mindset to embrace all the evening has to offer, vintage gowns and all. “I used to think ‘I need to prep,'” she said, “but now I go and enjoy myself.”
