2023 Met Gala

The Met Gala is the fashion event of the year. Where celebs and fashion icons come to walk the carpet in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The theme this year was honoring Karl Lagerfeld, he was a German fashion designer, who people say was very responsible for making Chanel into what it is today.

The Met Gala is an annual fundraising gala for the museum. Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, has been the chair of the Met since 1995. She is responsible for hand-picking the guest list. This is the most exclusive event in the world. What actually happens when someone is invited, is fashion and designer brands buy tables inside the Met, and then Anna gives them the list of invited guests and the brands will choose who they want to dress, not many celebs actually pay for their invite. For example, Stella McCartney decided to dress Madelyn Cline and Aubrey Plaza so they walked the carpet with her and were essentially her guest. That’s only most guests though.

There was one celeb that everyone was sad to see not attend this year Blake Lively who I personally think nails her look every year, she stated in an interview that she would not be attending due to her family commitments. There were also a couple of looks that left everyone shocked no matter how on brand for the theme it was, Jared Leto came in a full-body cat costume honoring Karl Lagerfeld’s cat Choupette who he loved very much so much that he left 1.5 million dollars to his cat, Doja Cat plus Lil Nas X also came dresses up as cats. The Met was truly a site to see this year.
