Though all dazzling celebrities looked spectacular, only a handful have what it takes to make it onto our best-dressed list.
It’s that time of the year again. The first Monday in May is the perfect time for the fashion’s biggest and most anticipated night out, the 2023 Met Gala. The event, which is held as the annual fundraiser for New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, has been organised and presided over by Anna Wintour since 1995. It is timed to coincide with the unveiling of the museum’s annual fashion exhibition, and this year’s is focused on Karl Lagerfeld. Titled “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” the collection honours the life and legendary career of the late designer who died on Feb. 19, 2019, and features more than 150 pieces, including sketches.
The looks spotted on the carpet were extravagant, cosy, and eye-catching as ever, reflecting and paying tribute to the life and style of the later designer, artist, and creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, who harnessed many muses for Chanel, Fendi, Balmain, Patou, and more. The likes of Dua Lipa, Anne Hathaway, Emily Ratajkowski, Jennifer Lopez, Roger Federer, Naomi, Bad Bunny, and Paris Hilton truly stole the show in their incredible outfits, bringing style and glamour to the carpet.
From Anne Hathaway, Dua Lipa to Roger Federer and Kendall Jenner, these are the best-dressed celebrities at the Met Gala 2023.
Supermodel Kendall Jenner went pantsless in cheeky sequins for the Met Gala. The supermodel’s black bum-baring leotard, complete with a matching cape, was designed by Marc Jacobs. She accessorised the sparkly ensemble with Wolford tights and black platform boots, styling her hair in a sleek ponytail.
Anne Hathaway looked stunning at the Met Gala 2023. For the occasion, she opted for a custom-designed look from Atelier Versace-inspired by Chanel in tweed fabric, pearl detail, and camellia rose chest and a DNA-bearing story of Legacy Versace.
Dua Lipa looked completely gorgeous at the Met Gala 2023 gala event, exuding royalty, and timeless glamour. For the occasion, she wore a vintage figure-hugging corset bodice designed by Chanel.
