A stunned reporter in a floor-length gold dress at the Met Gala last night went viral on social media with many claiming that she looked ‘better’ than the celebrities in attendance.
Celebrities were tasked with interpreting Gilded Glamor’s theme at a fundraising event on behalf of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, with the likes of Kim Kardashian and Blake Lively among the attendees.
Beauty pageant titleholder Genesis Camila Soero took to the red carpet in New York to report on “the biggest night in fashion” for Spanish-language broadcaster Telemundo.
After Genesis wore a glamorous gold dress by fashion designer Lucia Rodriguez, Genesis left fans impressed with several social media users arguing that she was the ‘best looking person’ at the event.

I remember watching TV in the Dominican Republic in 2002, and I saw one of the contestants in the Miss Universe contest, and I said, This is what I want to do. This is what I want to be. “This is going to be my career,” Genesis told the New York Post.
Genesis previously revealed that she was inspired to compete in the beauty pageants after seeing the Miss Universe contestant on TV.
Genesis, a finalist on a reality show last year, revealed that she runs marathons and organizes gym camps to stay fit.
