A sea of black and white designer wear adorned the bodies of the rich and famous, with occasional splashes of colour, as they strutted and swirled at the Met Gala 2023, the premier costume gala of New York City. This year’s theme ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’, paid homage to the legendary designer who led the house of Chanel.
The annual gala, organised by Vogue magazine and informally called the Met Gala, or Met Ball, is formally named the Costume Institute Gala or the Costume Institute Benefit. Essentially, the most prestigious celebrity fashion walk in the world, this event is a fundraiser for the Costume Institute, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City. Here are some shining moments from the 2023 event, held on May 1.
PS: Karl Lagerfeld loved cats, so some of the stars came as... cats.
