‘Tis another year of glitz and glamour on the red carpet of the Met Gala. Fashion fanatics from all around the world were glued to their screens and social media, excited to catch the pomp and pageantry from their favorite designers, and fashion icons.
This year’s event which fell on the traditional date the first Monday in May and was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was themed “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” and the dress code was themed “In honor of Karl“.
This was to honor the legendary designer who sadly passed away at age 85. He was one of the most prolific and celebrated fashion designers of all time and has headed up some of the biggest fashion houses in the world, including Fendi, Chanel, and his namesake label, all three of which he acted as creative director until his death.
The night saw more than 150 original looks from his storied career on display in the exhibition, many of which were accompanied by Lagerfeld’s sketches.
This year’s Gala was co-hosted by actor Michaela Coel and Penélope Cruz, tennis giant Roger Federer, singer Dua Lipa and, as always, Vogue’s editorial director Anna Wintour.
Check out some red carpet looks from Met Gala this year. Let’s see who was in tune with the gala’s theme or ignored it.
