The 2023 Met Gala co-chairs and theme are *chef’s kiss*
Start the countdown because we cannot wait.
On Wednesday, the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced the official co-chairs for the most anticipated fashion event of the year - aka the prestigious and strictly invite-only Met Gala.
The well-rounded group of celebs consists of Oscar-winning actress and longtime Chanel collaborator Penélope Cruz, pop icon and fashion It-girl Dua Lipa, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star Michaela Coel, world-leading tennis player Roger Federer and the fashion queen herself, Ms. Anna Wintour.
Taking place on May 1, the 2023 Met Gala theme will be “In Honor of Karl” - paying tribute to the late prolific designer Karl Lagerfield, who passed away in 2019 at age 85, and his long-spanning fashion career.
The accompanying exhibition titled “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” will also be on display at the Met for the public from May 5 with almost 150 display items showcasing Lagerfield’s prosperous career from the 50s to 2019, working with Chanel, Fendi, Chloé, Balmain, Patou and his eponymous label.
With every theme bringing us notable moments and a supreme fashion fix, we can’t wait for what this year has to offer.
