When arriving at the Metropolitan Museum of Art May 1, Rita stunned in a black draping Prabal Gurung gown with sheer panels. The look included a flowing cape on the dress and long chain accessories on her nails to add even more flair.
As for Taika, he looked handsome in a long dusty blue jacket worn over cream trousers with a black floral brooch and white beaded details. (See even more star sightings on the red carpet here.)
Titled "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty," the theme of this year's Met Gala hopes to honor the late fashion designer, who died in 2019 at the age of 85. According to Vogue, guests were asked to dress "in honor of Karl" to celebrate the many labels he worked for, including his eponymous brand, Fendi, Chanel and Balmain.
Rita herself has been a longtime fan of Karl. In fact, she once revealed her most prized possession in her closet was a custom dress from the designer.
But if there's one thing to know about the 32-year-old, it's the simple fact that she isn't afraid to take a red carpet risk.
"My style is different every day, but always recognizable," she told Vogue in November 2019. "I like glitz and I like bold signature pieces that liven up my look."
As for who we can thank for Rita's love for fashion? It may just come from Madonna.
"She is such a badass," the singer told Fashion Week Daily in September 2021. "When I was younger, I was into making my own outfits and I would go digging in flea markets to find the perfect pieces. That's probably my earliest fashion memory."
