"For a girl from the Bronx, to meet someone like Karl [Lagerfeld] was an honour,” Jennifer Lopez said to Lala Anthony, the host of this year's Met Gala livestream, on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where fashion's biggest names have gathered on this, the first Monday in May, to celebrate the late designer. "If you think of five people in fashion, he’s one of them." As such a big fan of Lagerfeld's work, Lopez had no choice but to show up to tonight's Met Gala in a top-tier look. And that, she certainly did.

For her umpteenth Met Gala since her debut in 2004, the singer-actress worked with legendary American designer Ralph Lauren to craft an ode to Lagerfeld in dress form. The result? A black-and-pink gown made of both velvet and silk that featured a 3D flower motif made of feathers and a large ab-baring cutout. On the accessories front, she added a black fascinator, a matching baby-pink clutch, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and her signature sky-high platform heels (this particular pair is from Piferi), which every so often could be spotted on the carpet peaking out from under her floor-sweeping hem. To see her interpretation of this year's theme, "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty" in all of its glory, start scrolling.
