Fashion's biggest night did not disappoint! On May 1, 2023, style-savvy stars showed up for the 2023 Met Gala, held at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here's a look at the celebrity ensembles that are sure to have everyone talking!
The theme this year is Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty and celebrates the full work and life of the late designer. The exhibition -- which opens to the public on May 5 and closes July 16 -- features 150 of Lagerfeld's designs from Chanel, Balmain, Patou, Fendi, Chloe as well as his own personal line. They will be accompanied by his sketches. The Chanel creative director died in February 2019. He was 85. After the theme was announced in September, it sparked backlash due to Lagerfeld's alleged past problematic comments, including in 2009 when he said that "no one wants to see round women." In 2018, he also said he was "fed up" with the #MeToo movement. The dress code remains "in honor of Karl." The co-chairs for the spring fashion event are Michaela Coel, Penélope Cruz, Dua Lipa, tennis pro Roger Federer, and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. The annual gala is a fundraiser for New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art.
