From Blake Lively's NYC-inspired gown transforming on the steps to the array of avant-garde men's fashion looks, there was no shortage of memorable moments at the 2022 Met Gala. However, not all of the winning ensembles belonged to actors, musicians, and models. One of the internet's favorite looks belonged to TV reporter Génesis Suero.

The 30-year-old correspondent for Telemundo dazzled the crowd in a floor-length, gold and white ball gown adorned with ornate beaded embroidery on the bodice, sleeves, and skirt. Made by NYC-based designer Lucía Rodríguez, this fairytale-like look has been praised for its theme-appropriate style. Not only that, but its romantic aesthetic has drawn the comparison between the princess Cinderella and Suero—who became a secret star in a room full of celebrities.

Originally of Dominican origin, Suero immigrated to the United States when she was 13 years old. After working a variety of jobs to support herself and her family, she made a breakthrough by winning the Miss New York pageant in 2018. Now, she is breaking new ground in her occupation as a reporter. “When my producers at Telemundo told me I was going to attend the gala as the first Afro Latina reporter, I was blown away, full of joy, and ready to get the job done,” Suero says.

Attending the Met Gala had always been a dream, but this job gave her the opportunity to make a bigger impact. “I wanted to do an impeccable job for my producers and portray the spirit of the event by dressing up as best I could for the theme,” she explains. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would get the attention I received. My most proud moment is that besides the recognition for the dress, now people know my work as a reporter.”
