It's the first Monday in May, or, in other words, it's Met Gala day. This year's theme is "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty," which The Met described simply as a night held "in honor of Karl." For fashion history buffs, the concept brings to mind the many iconic Chanel runway moments from the prolific designer's tenure at the fashion house (remember the itty-bitty double-C logo bikini?). Others, however, may recall Lagerfeld's personal uniform: a black suit, starched white button-down, leather gloves, dark sunglasses, and his beloved cat, Choupette, in tow. With such a vast pool of inspiration, tonight's attendees explored a gamut of directions on the Met Gala 2023 red carpet, with some celebrities donning genuine pieces from Lagerfeld's archive and others opting for custom, contemporary interpretations.
