The annual Met Gala, whose this year’s subject was Karl Lagerfeld, has drawn the whole fashion world to New York City. Pearls, starched collars, and black and white were worn at the event, which is renowned for its star-studded guest list and opulent attire. Karl Lagerfeld was honored.
About 400 people attended the invitation-only fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.

The dress code for the event was “in honor of Karl” and the topic was “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.” Britney Griner and her spouse attended, and co-chairs Roger Federer, Dua Lipa, Penélope Cruz, and Michaela Coel were also invited. Serena Williams and Karlie Kloss took advantage of the occasion to announce their pregnancy.
Last year, 275,000 pink roses were placed throughout the Metropolitan Museum’s Great Hall, but the attire that famous people wore to the event was insignificant in comparison to the decorations.

Kim Kardashian attended the luxurious Met Gala 2023 wearing a dress with rhinestones that Marilyn Monroe previously wore that cost $4.8 million (£3.84 million). This year, Kardashian donned a Schiaparelli gown covered in pearls that were created during a trip to the Paris office of Karl Lagerfeld.
Along with Rita Ora and her husband Taika Waititi, actors Priyanka Chopra, Elle Fanning, Brooklyn, and Nicola Peltz-Beckham attended. Rapper Lil Nas X appeared decked up in pearls and painted silver, looking like some sort of mystical creature.
Since he was facing assault charges related to an incident that happened in March, Jonathan Majors, who was supposed to attend as a guest of Valentino, “mutually agreed” not to.
Another noteworthy invitee, Choupette, was not there this year, even though both pop diva Doja Cat and actor Jared Leto dressed as the feline.
