One of the most influential icons of the fashion industry, Karl Lagerfeld would be the inspiration for the Met Gala 2023 happening in May next year.
The theme was announced by Anna Wintour, the editor of Us Vogue at a press conference in Paris, as ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’. The theme was scheduled for the 2021 Met Gala but was dropped due to the pandemic.
He began working with various fashion houses before he associated with big names like Fendi, French brand Chloe and finally Chanel. The fashion icon established his own label in 1984.
The fashion genius was also the creative director for the 2005 Met Gala, with the theme “The House of Chanel”. Lagerfeld was a more futuristic designer who never wanted fashion to be shunned inside the walls of a museum.
It would be no wonder to see most stars clad in dresses from Fendi and Chanel. While others would probably pull off the designer’s signature look with black sunglasses, high collars, and his hair into a ponytail.
