The 2023 Met Gala Has Announced Its Co-Chairs

Karl Lagerfeld was a sophisticated man, which makes “honoring” his designs all of the more difficult for this yr’s crop of Met Gala guests. Because the celebrities line up for 2023′[s fashion festivities, they’ll have a narrow window by which to steal red carpet attention for the profit—figuratively and literally—of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s upcoming Costume Institute exhibit, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.”

Unlike last yr’s famously open-ended “Gilded Glamour” theme, a dress code oriented around Lagerfeld’s works should provide more direction as celebs and their stylists prepare to stun. But homages can just as quickly go terribly unsuitable. Either way, the world shall be watching—and judging. Here’s what we find out about this yr’s Met Gala to this point.

When is the 2023 Met Gala?

The 2023 annual Costume Institute Profit—higher generally known as the Met Gala, after all—will happen on May 1, 2023, on the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Recent York City. Live coverage of the red carpet often starts around 6 p.m. EST, though celebrities are notorious for showing up (fashionably) late.

Who’re this yr’s co-chairs?

On January 18, the Met announced that the night’s co-chairs will include actress and screenwriter Michaela Coel; actress Penélope Cruz; tennis star Roger Federer; pop sensation Dua Lipa; and—as at all times—Vogue editor-in-chief and Condé Nast Global CCO Anna Wintour. One notable commentary: There aren’t any designers included on this yr’s co-chair slate. What that ultimately means for the party stays to be seen.

What’s the 2023 Met Gala theme, and what does it mean?

Every yr, the Met Gala theme—or, more precisely, the dress code—is tied to the Costume Institute’s spring exhibition. This yr’s show is “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” honoring the late German designer’s devotion to each easy, “serpentine” and “satirical” lines in his collections for Chanel, Fendi, Chlóe, Balmain, Patou, and his eponymous brand from the Nineteen Fifties to 2019. As such, the Met Gala’s dress code is solely “in honor of Karl,” leaving interpretation wide open to guests.

Provided that the Met has also announced each the exhibition and the Gala are supported by Chanel, Fendi, and Karl Lagerfeld itself, you’ll likely see quite a few celebrities outfitted in those brands. But let’s hope we see some more creative takes on “honoring” Lagerfeld than simply wearing his old designs.

Who’s invited to the 2023 Met Gala, and who’s going?

Along with the co-chairs, you possibly can expect the stalwarts, after all: The Kardashian-Jenner clan are all but guaranteed to be in attendance, and invites are sure to exit to stars including Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, Zendaya, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Blake Vigorous and Ryan Reynolds, the Hadid sisters, the Biebers, Zoë Kravitz, Billie Eilish, and—if we’re lucky—Lady Gaga and Beyoncé. But there’s no word just yet on who’s confirmed to attend.

Can I am going to the Met Gala?

A greater query may be, how wealthy and famous are you? Even for those who’ve earned enough notoriety to attain considered one of the elusive invites, you’ll must cough up several digits to secure a ticket. (Last yr, tickets cost $35,000 each, and tables ran between $200,000 and $300,000, per the Recent York Times.) That said, it’s easy enough to benefit from the Met Gala from afar: The event proceedings are at all times streamed online, and photos will litter the web inside moments of their upload. Check in on for the most recent because the evening goes on; we promise to get you as near the motion as possible.
