Thought the 2023 awards season was impressive? Well, the fashion community would like you to hold their clutch.
The first Monday in May, which, for the uninformed, means the most stylish stars from around the world flocked to New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art for the 2023 Met Gala. In other words, prepare yourself for the chicest, most glamorous—and let's be honest, most exclusive—party of the year.
As for what inspired the Costume Institute's annual benefit? This year's theme was "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty," honoring the Chanel designer who died in February 2019 from complications of pancreatic cancer at age 85.
"Karl was so much more than our greatest and most prolific designer," Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour previously shared. "His creative genius was breathtaking and to be his friend was an exceptional gift."
And, on May 1, we were gifted with unforgettable looks from the event's hosts Michaela Coel, Penélope Cruz, Roger Federer and Dua Lipa plus guests like Gisele Bündchen and Rita Ora.
You know you missed her, but if you also caught all the action from the comfort of your home, allow E! to be your one and only source on all the can't-miss moments, starting with every star's must-see arrival below...
From now until July, see 150 of Lagerfeld's most iconic designs on display at Metropolitan Museum of Art.
