Hosted on the first Monday in May, the Met Gala this year saw professionals from fashion, film, music, theatre and sports grace its carpet to honour designer Karl Lagerfeld and raise funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.The price of attending the gala saw a significant rise as it cost $300,000 for a table and $50,000 for a ticket this year.
The party coincides with the costume institute’s spring exhibition: “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty”. During his lifetime, the designer worked for Chanel, Fendi, Chloé, Jean Patou, Balmain, his own brand and more.
Singer Doja Cat with her prosthetics and actor Jared Leto in his cat costume paid an ode to Lagerfeld’s beloved cat Choupette while influencer Emma Chamberlain and comedian James Corden donned their dresses in Choupette blue, a light blue shade created by Lagerfeld.
This year’s five hosts include Anna Wintour, as usual, and also Michaela Coel, longtime Chanel ambassador Penélope Cruz, and recently retired tennis superstar Roger Federer.
