After 12 long months, it’s finally time again for the Met Gala, which, in addition to supporting one of New York City’s most iconic landmarks, just so happens to be fashion’s biggest night. After two years spent focusing on all things American fashion, 2023’s theme shifted to something more specific: Karl Lagerfeld. The late designer was best known for this work as the longtime Creative Director of Chanel, though his pieces can likewise be found in the archives at Fendi, Chloé, Balmain, and more iconic fashion brands. And for one night—the first Monday in May—they can all be honoured in one place. 

Whilst some attendees went the more classic route, Kendall Jenner did anything but, arriving on the ivory carpet wearing not trousers nor a gown, but a collared, sequin bodysuit worn with nothing but diamond earrings and sky-high platform boots (casual). The supermodel's custom Marc Jacobs look alludes to Lagerfeld's signature high-collared shirts, which he famously wore with fingerless, leather gloves, and black sunglasses. Scroll down to see how Jenner brought the no-pants trend to the Met Gala in 2023.
