Kylie Jenner's 20-Month-Old Daughter Stormi Recreates Her Custom Met Gala Look
"My baby!! I can't handle this!!" the Kylie Cosmetics mogul said
Stormi is her mom Kylie Jenner‘s mini-me!
“My baby!! I cant handle this!!” the Kylie Cosmetics mogul captioned three photos of her child on Instagram, along with multiple purple heart emojis.
“Omg I can’t deal,” Sofia Richie wrote in the comments section, adding a heart eyes emoji.
Jenner came up with the idea for the costume and turned to Alejandro Collection to recreate her iconic Met Gala look. “Kylie and her stylist Jill thought it would be adorably Iconic to have her baby as a mini version of herself in such an epic look that garnered so much attention at the Met Ball,” the label’s designer Alejandro Peraza tells PEOPLE exclusively.
The confection was custom-designed to fit on Stormi’s tiny body, which required hours of work from the Alejandro Collection team.
“It took 16 hours straight to do the beading on the super-small baby size and three full 14-hour days to apply the feathers by hand,” Peraza says. “And a whole day to design and add crystals to the baby clutch. Some of the feathers were shipped to me, others we hand-dyed as well to make a perfect feathered confection.”

Ultimately, Peraza created a costume that looked just as “close to the original” once it was complete. “I really enjoyed making the closest possible replica from the application of the feathers to the beading work,” the designer says. “This was a great opportunity to create couture for a baby.”
In May, Jenner looked stunning in custom Versace, wearing head-to-toe lilac with a see-through, mermaid-esque dress, fur stole and perfectly purple wig.
Her look was a nod to the 2019 gala’s theme “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, “Notes on Camp,” which describes camp as “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.”
The mom of one attended the event with sisters Kendall Jenner, who coordinated in Versace, and Kim Kardashian West, who wore custom Mugler. Momager Kris Jenner and Kardashian West’s husband Kanye West also accompanied the family.
In addition, Travis Scott joined Jenner for the stylish event. Months later, in October, he and Jenner decided to take “some time apart” from their two-year romance. ”They’re still figuring things out but are spending time together,” a source recently told PEOPLE of their current relationship status.
The 2019 Met Gala was one year after Jenner made her return to the red carpet and public eye three months following Stormi’s birth.
