Coming up at the Met Gala 2023

What can you expect at the 2023 edition of one of the biggest nights in the world of fashion? Read on...

Remember Blake Lively's dramatic transformation from shimmering rose gold to bright blue on the red carpet at last year's Met Gala? It seems like it was just yesterday when the bow on her gown was untied to reveal a cascading train in a whole other colour, instantly breaking the internet. And in the blink of an eye, the 2023 edition of the acclaimed event is already upon us!

On Monday, May 1, 2023, the biggest names in Hollywood and the who's who of the fashion industry will come together at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City for the highly-anticipated annual Met Gala. A grand celebration of fashion, the event is held as a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, raising up to eight figures every year, and is timed with the opening of the institute's yearly exhibition.

The annual event has been organised and presided over by Anna Wintour since 1995, with a changing roster of official co-chairs, which, this year, includes screenwriter and actress Michaela Coel, Oscar-winning actress Penélope Cruz, tennis legend Roger Federer and global music sensation Dua Lipa. Each has been chosen for their contributions to popular culture and they come from different segments of the industry.

While what truly goes on at the event remains a secret – given the strict no cameras and mobile phones policy – it's the red carpet that takes the spotlight. Over the years, the event has served up some of the most memorable moments in fashion, cue Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé and Rihanna, all in keeping with the year's dress code.

For 2023, the costume exhibition titled 'Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty' will celebrate the life and work of the legendary German fashion designer, through a showcase of more than 150 pieces, including his sketches. Fittingly, the dress code is 'in honour of Karl'. Given his illustrious career which has seen contributions to prominent fashion houses like Fendi, Chanel, Chloé, Balmain and more – in addition to his eponymous label – there is no shortage of inspiration for this year's attendees.

Watch this space for our showcase of the best dressed from the 2023 Met Gala Red Carpet.

In the meanwhile, revisit the best looks from the last few editions of the event.
