CEO and chief engineer/designer of SpaceX, co-founder, CEO, and product architect of Tesla Elon Musk’s baby mama and singer Grimes has explained the inspiration of her mask that she wore to the Met Gala.
Grimes revealed that the mask she wore at the Met Gala was inspired by the 2021 movie Dune, starring Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya. The artist told Vogue that she wore it to follow this year’s “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” theme.
“It’s kind of inspired by the movie Dune, which is an American film,” she explained. “Americans worked on it so it sort of fits the theme.”
“It’s not a prop sword, I tried to pick it up and this is not really a one-handed situation. It’s based on a western European sword from the end of the Middle Ages around 1400.”
“It’s from these people who are getting people’s [guns] who don’t want to have their automatic rifles anymore, and are melting them down and making them perfect replicas of medieval swords, which I think is just so cool — I think it’s a beautiful thing.”
