Once again, the Met Gala brings together the most prominent fashion figures at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for its annual celebration of the opening of its new costume institute exhibition.
The theme for Met Gala 2023 is "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty," in remembrance of the life and career of the late fashion designer. Along with creating clothing for his own label, Lagerfeld worked on projects for fashion labels including Chanel, Fendi, Balmain, and Chloe throughout his career.
Here are some of the best Met Gala 2023 outfits we've curated from the red carpet:
Penelope Cruz, who was dressed in vintage Chanel bridal, revealed to Vogue that she first met Lagerfeld in 1999 and that they grew close after he made her a company ambassador. She said, "I loved him so much."
Doja Cat went all out for her first Met Gala, showing up in a stunning Oscar de la Renta gown and complete cat prosthetics.
Jenna Ortega wore a corset dress, small tulle pannier, cropped tweed jacket, and long coat in her deconstructed high-low Thom Browne ensemble.
Bad Bunny is sporting a rose-patterned stole and a backless cream suit.
Cardi B rocked two iconic couture outfits, including this one with a corset, gloves, and tie a la Lagerfeld.
Gigi Hadid arrived at the red carpet wearing a sensual Givenchy gown that was corseted, sheer, and fitted.
Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner
Kim Kardashian is wearing Schiaparelli, Kendall Jenner is wearing Marc Jacobs, and Kylie Jenner is wearing Haider Ackermann.
In keeping with the Chanel brides who concluded Lagerfeld's couture presentations, Rihanna's white Valentino gown, which she paired with a white floral hooded coat, looked great on her.
A Balmain Cape with the visage of Lagerfeld was actor Jeremy Pope's obvious and imposing tribute to the fashion designer.
This year, Alia Bhatt attended her first Met Gala. The actress, who will soon make her Hollywood debut in Gal Gadot's Heart of Stone, was dressed in Prabal Gurung clothing for the momentous occasion. She was stunning in a floor-length white gown.
