Met Gala 2023 co-host Dua Lipa was one of the first celebrity arrivals to Met Gala 2023 on Monday, one of the biggest nights in the fashion calendar.
Marking the unveiling of the Metropolitan Museum’s exhibition Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty in New York, the event brings together A-listers across fashion, film and music.
German-born Lagerfeld, who died in 2019, was an influential fashion designer who served as creative director for Chanel, Fendi and his eponymous label.
Celebrities are asked to don outfits reflecting the exhibition’s theme, and singer Lipa, 27, was one of the first people to wear an archival Lagerfeld design.
The white dress – in Chanel’s signature tweed fabric – had a corseted bodice, black trim and fringing at the hem.
German supermodel Claudia Schiffer originally wore the design in the early 90s.
Lipa accessorised the look with a statement Tiffany diamond necklace she said had never been seen before in public.
Ora wore a dramatic black dress with sheer panels, floral detailing and a long train, and Waititi donned a floor-length grey jacket, white trousers and a black flower on his lapel – reflecting his wife’s outfit.
It is the same outfit she wore in the 2004 advertisement for the fragrance Chanel No5, directed by Baz Luhrmann.
To complement the dramatic dress, Kidman kept her hair loose and her make-up simple.
