The Met Gala, which is held annually at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, is a fundraising event for the museum’s Costume Institute. Each year, the event has a different theme, which sets the tone for the dress code and the overall vibe of the night. The theme for the 2023 Met Gala was particularly fitting, as Karl Lagerfeld has played a significant role in shaping the industry for decades.
The 2023 Met Gala was a sight to behold, with some of the biggest names in fashion and entertainment stepping out in their most show-stopping looks. The co-chairs for the event were Penélope Cruz, Michaela Coel, Roger Federer, and Dua Lipa who all looked stunning in their respective ensembles. Penélope Cruz wore a sheer mint green dress from the Chanel Couture’s spring/summer 1988 collection, Michaela Coel wore a gold, semi-sheer gown by Schiaparelli, Roger Federer wore a black Dior tuxedo, and Dua Lipa wore a vintage Chanel white ball gown.
Most of the attendees dressed to honor the legacy of Karl Lagerfeld by choosing pieces from brands he had transformed such as Chloe, Dior, Fendi, Chanel, and more. Some notable attendees included Doja Cat, Lil Nas X, and Jared Leto, whose outfits were inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s cat. Kendall Jenner who worked very closely with Karl Lagerfeld also dressed to honor the late designer. She wore a black sequence bodysuit by Marc Jacobs to resemble Lagerfeld’s swimwear line from the 90s.
