With this year's Met Gala celebrating American fashion, it was only fitting for the attendees to reference some of the country's biggest fashion icons. Audrey Hepburn was obviously on the list, being the inspiration behind Kendall Jenner's dazzling frock by Givenchy.

Kendall's sheer, silver-embellished frock was an homage to one of the many memorable looks from the 1964 film, My Fair Lady. It was patterned after the gown Eliza Doolittle (played by Audrey) wore at the prestigious Embassy Ball, which was the peak of the character's transformation.

Givenchy gave justice to the Cecile Beaton-designed gown by staying true to the piece's original silhouette. But because their muse is Kendall Jenner, they opted for sheer fabric, lowered the neckline, and gave the gown a slimmer fit to accentuate the model's figure. They also attached bedazzled sleeves to the dress in lieu of gloves. Genius!

Before the event, Kendall gave a shoutout to Audrey by posting snippets from the film on her Instagram stories. And she definitely didn't disappoint on the red carpet, because her version of the iconic gown was simply stunning.
