Who was best-dressed at the Met Gala 2023? Let’s take a look as we’ve ranked all of the best red carpet looks from the May 1, 2023 extravaganza.
We’ve listed both the best celebrity outfits and this year’s worst-dressed from the Met Gala’s red carpet, informed by the Met Gala 2023 theme of “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.”
Attendees were tasked with dressing to “honor” Karl Lagerfeld, which on paper means Chanel, Fendi, Chloé, and perhaps even the high-street Karl Lagerfeld brand. However, as always, not everyone follows the rules to a tee on the the first Monday in May, so plenty of surprises were in store.
We witnessed appearances from A-listers like Rihanna and Kim Kardashian, who was most certainly invited, thank you very much.
There was no need to sneak into the Metropolitan Museum’s ultra-exclusive event. If you stuck with us, we picked out all the best (and worst) looks that the Met Gala 2023 had to offer. Maybe we’ll finally have reason to update our historic list of best-dressed Met Gala moments.
