The college woman who went viral for her stunning beauty during Howard’s 2017 homecoming has reemerged on our timelines and is still turning heads.
Anok Yai graced the red carpet at the Met Gala on Monday in an Oscar de la Renta dress and Giuseppe Zanotti heels, according to Pop Sugar. The model was also adorned in beautiful jewelry and a complimenting feathered cape with a train. But this wasn’t her first gala rodeo. She also attended the 2019 ceremony in an equally stunning feathery fit.

The model, then 21 years old, captured the attention of modeling agencies after a photo of her circulated online two years ago, as Blavity previously reported. Yai was a biochemistry student at Plymouth State University in New York at the time.
