The supermodel arrived to the 2023 Met Gala on May 1 in an edgy Givenchy ensemble alongside creative director Matthew Williams. Her dress included a black corset top with a sheer train and plenty of pearls, honoring Lagerfeld with her black-and-white color palette and the gemstone associated with Chanel.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art previously announced that the theme explores "the artistic methodology and stylistic vocabulary of Karl Lagerfeld's designs through recurring themes across more than 65 years, from the 1950s to his final collection in 2019."
Some of the 150 designs featured in the exhibit, which will be open to the public until to July, are from his time as creative director of labels such as Chanel, Chloé and Fendi, among others.
"I'm so heartbroken I almost don't have words," Hadid, who appeared in a number of runway shows for Lagerfeld, wrote on Instagram at the time of his passing. "There will never be another Karl Lagerfeld. Every second with you was an honor, joy, and inspiration."
"I wish I could give you one last hug," she added. "I love you Karl. Thank you for everything. Rest In Peace."
