The most anticipated fashion event of the year has arrived.
This year’s theme, Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, pays homage to the late Karl Lagerfeld, whose fashion career has defined an entire industry in many ways. The dress code simply called for “In honour of Karl” which means it’s open to the guest’s interpretation.
But what does it mean for the men? It is worth noting that Karl Lagerfeld has creatively helmed many prominent luxury fashion houses including Chanel, Fendi, Balmain, and Chloé to name a few, leaving male A-listers and their team of experts with plenty of outfit inspirations for this exclusive annual night out.
Who were the boldest and bravest? Keep scrolling below to see the men who wore it well at the 2023 Met Gala.
