Lily-Rose Depp Channels Her Inner Sailor Pluto at Met Gala

It’s that time of year again where the world will see some of Hollywood’s most biggest stars decked out in high-end fashion, the Met Gala, with this year’s theme being ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’. Among Lady Gaga, Zendaya, JLo, and others is actress and model Lily-Rose Depp who made an appearance at this year’s Met Gala in a vintage black Chanel haute couture dress embellished in gold chains, just like the one that Setsuna Meioh, aka Sailor Pluto, worn!

Even Sailor Moon fans were shocked by the resemblance!:

The creator of Sailor Moon, Naoko Takeuchi, is known for her love of couture fashion. She looked to fashion magazine ads and runways for inspiration for the Sailor Moon manga. The dress that Sailor Pluto wears in the Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Gengashuu III art book was inspired by the dress in the Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer line worn by Naomi Campbell in 1992 (so, technically the Chanel got to the dress first!).

So, it seems more so that Depp was not inspired by the anime, but by Chanel. Though, Depp has yet to state where she got her inspiration from.
