The Best Fashion Moments at the 2023 Met Gala

Fashion’s biggest night out returned with the annual Met Gala, where celebrities and designers come together to showcase their most daring looks in support of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute upcoming exhibition Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. The 2023 Met Gala did not disappoint, as guests walked the red carpet in stunning outfits that left us in awe. In keeping with this year’s theme, attendees paid tribute to the late designer’s iconic career in fashion by wearing designs “In honour of Karl.” The red carpet was filled with archival CHANEL gowns, black and white ensembles, dramatic floral details, and nods to Lagerfeld’s beloved cat Choupette. From Nicole Kidman’s custom CHANEL dress worn in her 2004 CHANEL N°5 advertising campaign to Rihanna’s giant camellia Valentino cape, this year’s looks truly delivered on the sartorial splendour.
