Shortly after stepping out at the event, the woman, who has now been identified as business woman Mona Patel – sparked a frenzy of intrigue on social media, where users waxed lyrical about her stunning nude-colored Iris Van Herpen gown.

Having worked with Zendaya’s longtime stylist Law Roach for the occasion, Patel, who was born in Vadodara, Gujarat, perfectly encapsulated the dress code for the evening: The Garden of Time.

The beauty moved to the United States in 2003 – and has since founded several companies, such as HauteX Ventures and radXai, a health tech startup.

Patel – who was a Forbes Next 1000 honoree back in 2021 – stunned in a figure-hugging dress that contained a butterfly, corset bodice as well as sheer, lace details on the side.

The hem of the ensemble flowed down into a scalloped train and had gold-embroidered details on the material.

Gold butterfly embellishments were placed on her arms and reached up past her elbows. For a one-of-a-kind touch, the wings of the butterflies mechanically moved on their own – sending social media users into a frenzy.

Mona slipped into a pair of open-toed, gold heels that had sparkling, rhinestone embellishments on top.

Her makeup was glammed up for her Met Gala debut, and comprised of a layer of mascara to her lashes as well as a shimmering, bronze shadow around her eyes.

A warm blush and contour was added to her cheekbones, while a satin, nude-colored tint was worn on her lips for a finishing touch.

To accessorize the breathtaking ensemble, Patel added a pair of teardrop earrings that glittered underneath the bright lights.

The CEO was notably styled by Roach – who is known for also working with actress Zendaya.

Mona is also no stranger to the entertainment industry and has mingled with A-list Hollywood stars.

Back in 2021, she attended a Vogue100 event in collaboration with Kendall Jenner’s 818 Tequila brand.

During the event, Mona had the chance to take a quick snap with the TV personality and the pair flashed cheerful smiles for the camera.

In December 2022, she graced the cover for Glamour Bulgaria while adorned with diamond necklaces and bracelets.

The businesswoman currently boasts nearly 30,000 followers on her main Instagram page.

She also married Chintan DeSai nearly 17 years earlier, and will occasionally share sweet snaps of the pair on her Instagram page.
