Met Gala 2023: Highlights, Fun Moments, and Fashion Hits of a Rather Boring Carpet

This year's Met Gala's theme was a homage to the career of the late designer, Karl Lagerfeld. But the theme made it a quite boring gala with very few surprises.

The Met Gala has just ended and with it one of the least memorable editions of this iconic fashion event that makes us stick to our screens every first Monday of May. The theme for this year’s Met Gala was a homage to Karl Lagerfeld, a quite iconic yet questionable designer that more than once spread hateful comments.

Although he had an impeccable style, and the attendees to this Gala were mostly on the theme, there wasn’t that much variety or fashion bets making it a rather boring or predictable red carpet with very few shocking moments. Tons of black and white outfits, lots of feathers and sparks, pearls, flowers, suits, and fingerless gloves, were some of the most seen elements.

Here are a few highlights, cringey moments, and rare fashion hits of this year’s Met Gala:
