For fashion and beauty lovers, the first Monday of May may be the single most exciting day of the year. It’s the night of the 2023 Met Gala, and we’re champing at the bit to see who will be walking the red carpet and what they’ll be wearing.
This year’s Met Gala theme, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” celebrates the life and work of legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, who designed for a slew of brands throughout his career, including Chanel, Chloé, and Fendi before passing away in 2019. In light of the theme, the evening’s official dress code is naturally “in honor of Karl.”
The Met Gala red carpet has never been the time to play it safe with fashion or beauty, so we’re preparing ourselves for a night of rich inspiration and jaw-dropping (we mean that literally, not figuratively) appearances from our favorite celebrity invitees.
