Hollywood royalty gathered to pay homage to Karl Lagerfeld’s life and legacy at this year’s Met Gala, and they certainly understood the assignment. The fashion’s biggest night was all about black and white outfits, high collars, and pearls, and we’re bringing you some of the best looks.
It’s no secret that black and white was Lagerfeld’s go-to color scheme, and everyone was wearing this combo on Monday night. Lily Collins, Olivia Rodrigo, and Michelle Yeoh put this trend on the map, while Jessica Chastain and Cardi B went one step further and matched their platinum lock with their black gowns.
Pearly dresses were also front and center, and Kim Kardashian made us fall in love with this fashion craze with her pearl-dripping gown. Some celebrities embraced this trend in a more subtle way, such as Anne Hathaway and Jenna Ortega, who wore pearls without making them the centerpiece of their look.
Many celebrities at the Met Gala looked like they were about to walk down the aisle in an attempt to embrace the “Chanel bride” trend. Dua Lipa and Gisele Bündchen even wore vintage Chanel looks, while Rihanna, Florence Pugh, and Ava Max opted for modern designs. White collars were also one of Lagerfeld’s signatures, and Julia Garner and Kendall Jenner put their own twist on this trend.
We’re bringing you ten red carpet looks that blew our minds at the Met Gala this year, and we’ll leave it up to you to pick your favorite.
