Met Gala 2023: Best dressed stars on the red carpet, from Kim Kardashian to Anne Hathaway
The 2023 Met Gala is in full swing and various celebrities are making their way to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s iconic red steps.
Tonight’s fashion extravaganza is dedicated to “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” which will “examine the life” of the late designer’s legacy. This theme also coincides with the dress code: “In honour of Karl”.
The annual fundraiser for the Met’s Costume Institute will call on its guests to channel the many “wondrous ways” to “salute one of fashion’s greats”, according to Vogue. For example, they can opt for outfits designed by brands like Patou, Chloé, Fendi, Chanel -- all of which Lagerfeld worked with in his lifetime.
Per usual, Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour will be running the event. This year, she’ll be doing so alongside four co-chairs: Penélope Cruz, Michaela Coel, Roger Federer, and Dua Lipa. The magazine will also be broadcasting a livestream of the red carpet hosted by LaLa Anthony, Derek Blasberg, and Chloe Fineman.
