Met gala 2023 – 1st of may
The Met Gala 2023, the most eagerly awaited fashion event of the year, took place early this morning. Its red carpet promises to be a tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, like the exhibition, with Penélope Cruz as one of its main protagonists.
The Met Gala 2023, the most anticipated fashion event of the year, has just taken place. The gala that precedes every first Monday in May the fashion exhibition organised by the MET Museum in New York is an event in style that is never missed by the most representative figures in the sector. This is what we know so far about the edition that took place a few hours ago and that had Karl Lagerfeld, the unforgettable creative director of Chanel, as the absolute star of the show.
What is the theme of the Met Gala 2023?
The theme of the most important fashion event of the year moves between two options: focusing on a particular field, such as the influence of Catholicism on fashion, the punk of 2013 or the camp of 2018, or focusing on a particular figure. Karl Lagerfeld will be the absolute theme of the MET Gala 2023: as we mentioned a few months ago, this is a bit of a paradox in itself. The former creative director of Chanel, who passed away about three years ago, was not at all devoted to exhibitions, let alone retrospectives. “I’m calling it an essay,” said Andrew Bolton, chief curator of the Costume Institute, adding that Lagerfeld’s contributions to fashion have been “unparalleled”. Like his predecessor, Gabrielle Chanel, Karl was a tireless worker who, when he landed at Chanel in 1983, succeeded in bringing the brand back into the industry spotlight. From stale and stale, shunned by the press, he moved on to a rejuvenated spirit of totemic codes.
