Here Are The Best Music Looks Of The 2023 Met Gala

The 2023 Met Gala red carpet is underway, and as usual, the annual event’s guestlist boasts a who’s-who of the music world. Recording artists who’ve attended in the past include Billie Eilish, who joked last year that her favorite part of attending is “judging” everyone’s looks, Cardi B, who often steals the show, even when she isn’t even trying to, Phoebe Bridger, whose 2022 look dropped jaws, even if it wasn’t what fans thought, Nicki Minaj, and Lizzo, who played a one-of-a-kind, $55,000 flute on the red carpet.

This year’s theme is intended to honor the late Karl Lagerfeld, who died in 2019 at the age of 85. Lagerfeld was a vaunted — and controversial — figure in the fashion world, known for guiding the creative directions of fashion houses like Chanel and Fendi and for wearing the kind of collars that would make Joe Pesci’s character in Goodfellas jealous. With fans already looking forward to seeing how their favorite stars choose to interpret the theme and reflecting back on prior looks running the gamut of everything from camp to religious irreverence, excitement on social media is high.
