Celebrities Arrive At The 2023 Met Gala In Their Best Looks

The gala celebrates the opening of the exhibition ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’ while raising funds for The Met’s Costume Institute.

It’s the first Monday in May and the 2023 Met Gala is kicking off with celebrities walking down the red carpet in their best looks.

This year’s theme is in honor of the late Karl Lagerfeld who helmed fashion houses such as Chanel, Fendi, and his own eponymous line.

Gisele Bündchen

The Brazilian supermodel opted for a white silk tulle Chanel dress. She previously wore the piece for a Harper’s Bazaar Korea photoshoot back in 2007.

Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa, another Met Gala co-chair, arrived in a 1992 Chanel gown originally worn by Claudia Schiffer. The pop star completed the look with a 100-carat diamond from Tiffany & Co.

She’s now the first star to ever wear the new Legendary diamond set on the brand’s Lucida Star necklace. The piece is reportedly worth over $10 million.

Michelle Yeoh

The Oscar-winning actress attended her second Met Gala in a black and white gown with voluminous long sleeves. The look pays homage to Lagerfeld’s signature style, feminizing classical menswear details.

Olivia Wilde

The Don’t Worry Darling director stunned the crowd in a sleek white gown from Chloé. The dress features side cutouts which bare her midriff while the bodice and high collar are embroidered with gold beads.

Florence Pugh

Florence Pugh made her Met Gala debut with a shaved head and a black and white Valentino gown. The dress features a long train and a white bodice with a plunging neckline. The actress topped off the look with a black feathered headpiece.

Jennie Kim

Another highly anticipated Met Gala debut was, of course, Blackpink’s Jennie. The K-pop star was in full Chanel, wearing a vintage white mini dress. As one of Lagerfeld’s last handpicked muses for the fashion house, this was the perfect theme for her to honor.

Doja Cat

True to her stage name, the musician chose to honor Lagerfeld’s white Burmese cat, Choupette. Doja Cat wore a hooded gown by Oscar de la Renta featuring cat ears and a mermaid silhouette. She also styled her nose and mouth to look like a cat, completing the whole look.
