    Karl Lagerfeld theme blamed for ‘boring’ best dressed list – live updates

    Met Gala: Stars walk the red carpet

    The 2023 Met Gala has come to a close.

    This year’s theme was “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty”, which aimed to “examine the life” of the late designer’s fashion legacy.

    But while many celebrities showed off their best Lagerfeld-inspired looks, viewers have branded fashion’s biggest night as “boring” due to the black-and-white ensembles that ruled the evening.

    However, an unexpected guest went viral for its red carpet appearance. A cockroach was spotted on the red carpet and photographed before being “stepped on”, leading to viewers mourning its death.

    The decision to feature the German designer so prominently has also attracted criticism given his history of controversial remarks.

    Models protested ahead of the event, with Jameela Jamil among those who condemned the choice. Concerns were also raised about his past fatphobic and body-shaming comments.

    In line with the theme, guests were informed that the “most authentic approach” for the Met Gala 2023 dress code would be “to wear an archival look from one of the labels Lagerfeld led”.

    Kim Kardashian, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Campbell, and Jennifer Lopez all walked the red carpet in line with the theme, while some stars took more creative liberties in their Met Gala looks. Doja Cat and Jared Leto, for example, arrived dressed as Lagerfeld’s beloved cat, Choupette.

    Olivia Wilde and Margaret Zhang wear same dress to Met Gala

    With the majority of the attendees wearing tributes to Karl Lagerfeld for the event centred around the late designer, it is understandable that there was some fashion overlap, with most of the star-studded guest list choosing white or black outfits adorned with pearls.

    However, for Wilde and Zhang, this meant wearing the exact same dress in different colours.

    Met Gala afterparty saw some celebrities dress more casually

    Following the glitz and glamour of the Met Gala red carpet, the star-studded guest list underwent a fashion transformation, with celebrities arriving at the afterparties in everything from sheer dresses to sweatpants in Irina Shayk’s case.

    The model arrived at the Met Gala afterparty in a white tank top and grey sweatpants, which may have been a subtle dig at Lagerfeld, who infamously alleged “sweatpants are a sign of defeat”.

    “Tedium was the least of the Gala’s problems,” writes Katie Edwards. “The main issue lay in the choice of theme for the event: Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, which honoured the ‘full work and life’ of Lagerfeld. Attendees were invited to dress ‘in honour of Karl.’”
