We know it’s only January, but here’s some news to hold you over until the first Monday in May. The co-chairs for the 2023 Met Gala have been announced. The lineup includes longtime Chanel collaborator Penélope Cruz, Michaela Coel, Dua Lipa, and Roger Federer (that last one must have been known tennis aficionado Anna Wintour’s call.) The stars who are regulars on the Met Gala red carpet will be following stars like Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Regina King, and Lin-Manuel Miranda who co-chaired in 2022. Naomi Osaka and Billie Eilish were among some of the stars who co-chaired in 2021.
This year’s Met Gala is in honor of Karl Lagerfeld and will be accompanied by an exhibition, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” following the late designer’s work. Lagerfeld helmed Chanel and Fendi until his death in 2019. With a career spanning decades, we’re sure the designer’s legacy will inspire many stunning red-carpet moments, and we expect the co-chairs to be the most on-theme guests at the event. Like you, we also have one question: Will Rihanna be there this year?
Last year’s theme, “Gilded Glamour,” brought us notable moments like Kim Kardashian’s Marilyn Monroe–dress controversy, more than one person who looked like Jared Leto, and many on-theme fashion and beauty moments. This is, after all, our Super Bowl.
