Whether you love his looks or hate them, you gotta admit: Karl Lagerfeld has stood the test of time by creating some timeless looks.
In case you missed it, Vogue Magazine posted on Jan 18 that they will be hosting the 2023 Met Gala on May 1 with the theme titled “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” to honor the late designer.
They uploaded all the details to their Instagram, saying, “This year, the #MetGala—which benefits the @metmuseum’s @metcostumeinstitute—falls on May 1 and will honor one of fashion’s greatest talents: Karl Lagerfeld. The accompanying exhibition, titled ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,’ pays tribute to the prolific designer who helmed major fashion houses, including Chanel, Fendi, and Chloé. Michaela Coel, @penelopecruzoficial, @RogerFederer, @DuaLipa, and Anna Wintour will serve as the evening’s official co-chairs. And paying tribute to Mr. Lagerfeld is not solely a task for the museum’s curators: the 2023 dress code is In honor of Karl.”
So obviously, we’re so excited to see some of Lagerfeld’s previous pieces hit the red carpet. In honor of the 2023 Met Gala, let’s take a look back at the best creations Lagerfeld ever made that hit the Met Gala red carpet. Since Lagerfeld helped create legendary fashion houses like Chanel, Fendi, and Chloé. While Fendi and Chloé weren’t a part of the red carpet until after Lagerfeld’s death, let’s see our favorite Met Gala looks from Chanel.
