The Most Jaw-Dropping Red Carpet Looks From the 2023 Met Gala

The first Monday in May has arrived, and with it comes one of the most talked-about nights in fashion: the Met Gala. This star-studded fundraising benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City features an exhibition theme that pays homage to the late fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld. The 2023 Met Gala's theme, Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, requires attendees to dress "in honor of Karl." Though we'll be keeping a close eye on the arrivals, we already know that Penélope Cruz, Michaela Coel, Roger Federer, Dua Lipa, and Vogue's Anna Wintour will co-host the event and attend as well.

The ensembles you're about to explore draw inspiration from Lagerfeld's iconic designs across various fashion houses, including Balmain, Patou, Chloé, Fendi, Chanel, and his eponymous brand. While some attendees have deviated from the theme, breaking the rules and creating buzz, we have included them in this collection. Scroll down to view the best looks from the 2023 Met Gala red carpet, and be sure to check back throughout the night as we continue to update this gallery in real time.
