Here’s Why So Many Celebrities Dressed Up Like a Cat for the Met Gala

As expected, the 2023 Met Gala was stacked with show-stopping style and a handful of standout trends, from Barbiecore to black-and-white aesthetics. What wasn’t so expected of said trends, however, was for one of them to be dressing like a cat. From Jered Leto’s kitty couture take on Masked Singer to Doja Cat’s transformation into a literal cat, it seemed like feline was on the mind when coming up for a look for the 2023 Met Gala.

But it turns out so many celebrities were feeling feline furr a reason. The 2023 Met Gala theme was Karl Lagerfeld: A Line Of Beauty, an ode to the major creative force behind Chanel, Chloé, Balmain, and Patou, to name a few. The controversial designer, who passed away in 2019, was not only known for his daring looks, but also his beloved white Birman cat, Choupette. Here’s everything we know about the Choupette-inspired cat looks at the 2023 Met Gala and Lagerfeld’s cat Choupette, who is very much an icon in her own right.
