Dua Lipa arrived at the 2023 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) as this year’s co-chair, and completed the theme in one of fashion history’s most beloved garments.
This year’s theme is Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, and the “Levatating” pop star honored the late German fashion designer by wearing one of his Chanel Haute Couture bridal gowns, which famously closed out every catwalk. Lipa’s knitted corset gown was originally modeled by Lagerfeld’s longtime muse, Claudia Schiffer, during the Chanel couture fall/winter 1992 show.
Lipa accessorized her Chanel bride look with her hair in long, loose waves and a stunning, bejeweled necklace.
The Grammy-winning superstar is co-chairing this year’s prestigious event alongside Penélope Cruz, Michaela Coel and Roger Federer, a lineup that spans “every realm of popular culture,” according to Vogue.
“Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” will showcase more than 150 original looks designed by Lagerfeld, who died at 85 years old in 2019, delving into the former Chanel creative director’s expansive seven-decade career. Many of his original sketches are also set to appear alongside the objects on display.
