Best Looks From the 2023 Met Gala


Katerina Archipov

The first Monday of May starts off with the Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. This year’s gala is dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld, a designer who transformed fashion’s most famous houses and the creative director of Chanel, who sadly passed away in 2019. The attendees and celebrities paid their respects by styling some of his best designs or making his style their own. A classic black and white palette was the theme for the night.

Many classic Chanel pieces made reappearances, like Margot Robbie styling a 1993 dress originally worn by Cindy Crawford and Nicole Kidman wearing the pink feathered gown from her Chanel commercial in 2004. In honor of Lagerfeld’s cat, Choupette, Doja Cat, Jared Leto and Lil Nas X all showed up in cat costumes. Arriving fashionably late, A$AP Rocky and Rihanna stole the show. Rihanna wore a bridal Valentino gown with a hooded coat while Rocky wore a simple white button-up, a tie, a plaid skirt and bedazzled jeans, which was a look heavily inspired by Lagerfeld. 

There were many memorable looks from the event. The night was filled with remembrance and appreciation for the impact that Karl Lagerfeld made on fashion.
