In the world of fashion, there are few nights as big as the Met Gala for celebrities. The annual event asks Hollywood’s elite to come dressed to the nines for an evening of decadence, and Lily Rose Depp followed those instructions closely last night.
Oh, and it just so happens she channeled her inner Sailor Scout do so.
Last night, the Meta Gala took over social media in force as celebrities hit the pink carpet. The event was themed around Camp, giving guests the chance to channel their most absurd and over-the-top outfits. It was there Depp showed up, and fans were quick to connect her dress to Sailor Moon.

As you can see above, the dress which Depp work very closely resembles a dress Sailor Pluto was drawn in years ago. Manga artist Naoko Takeuchi had the heroine wear the ritzy gown in an artbook, and fans were stunned to see how close the dresses looked.
The gowns are both decked out with chains and gold embellishments. The draped jewelry is even positioned the same for the most part, and both black gowns feature an ample neckline and jewel-encrusted pendant.
Of course, fans hit up social media curious about the overlap, but Sailor Moon stans found out soon enough the homage was less about anime and more about Chanel. The creator of Sailor Moon is a noted fan of couture fashion, and she often put outfits she liked into her manga. Back in 1992, Chanel made a dress just like the one worn by Sailor Pluto, so it seems most likely that Depp is playing off the vintage runaway look.

Sailor Moon was originally created by Naoko Takeuchi for Nakayoshi magazine in 1991. More than 20 years later, Sailor Moon stands as one of the most influential shojo series ever created; popularizing the magical girl sub-genre with fans all over the world. It would be the perfect series from which to pull possible Jeopardy questions from. Surely Borer would have the edge in such a case if she continues on her winning streak on the show.
