Lady Dimitrescu Gets a Met Gala Dress In Resident Evil Village Fan Art

Lady Dimitrescu from Resident Evil Village received VIP treatment in fan art depicting her in a stunning Met Gala dress. As an annual fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, The Met Gala attracts celebrities donning breathtaking costumes and even a few odd looks. This year’s benefit took place Monday, September 13th, and attendees wore costumes that showed their take on this year’s theme of “American Independence.”

As the most recent installment in the Resident Evil franchise, Capcom’s Resident Evil Village has players control Ethan Winters as he tries to find his missing daughter. Along the way, he encounters mutant creatures living in a village, one of the main antagonists being Lady Alcina Dimitrescu. Portrayed as a tall, full-figured vampire-like aristocratic woman, Lady Dimitrescu has been the subject of fan art and cosplays since her first appearance in previews and demos for the game in late 2020.

Resident Evil Village fan BossLogic took to Twitter to post his fan art of Lady Dimitrescu wearing a very revealing modern-day dress. BossLogic captioned his art as “Jenny from the Village,” a play on what is arguably Jennifer Lopez’s most famous song “Jenny from the Block.” As evidenced by JLo’s 2021 Met Gala look, BossLogic made this reference because he modeled Lady Dimitrescu’s dress after what Lopez wore that night. BossLogic’s Lady Dimitrescu is wearing the same dress, leather choker, and silver necklace and earrings as Lopez wore during the Met Gala. Though JLo wears a brown hat similar to the one worn by the character in Resident Evil Village, BossLogic’s Lady Dimitrescu’s wears her own signature large, tilted brown hat and sports her long, sharp claws.

The aristocratic air given off by the Ralph Lauren designed 2021 Met Gala outfit and its matching brown hat was what probably inspired BossLogic to base his creation on Jennifer Lopez’s outfit. The artist tagged Lopez in his fan art on Twitter, but the star has yet to respond. This isn’t the only Met Gala-inspired fan art to come out of this year’s fundraising event. In fact, BossLogic was also inspired by Lupita Nyong’o’s Met Gala costume to create his own version of the Marvel mutant Storm.

With the conclusion of this year’s Met Gala, fans are having a field day with their artistic creations. As players of Resident Evil Village await updates on the recently-announced DLC, they can enjoy the fan art. Perhaps JLo will even give her seal of approval.
