The 2023 Met Gala Dress Code Has Been Announced

In case you missed it, this year’s Met Gala is dedicated to the legacy of fashion’s most hyperactive and prolific mastermind, Karl Lagerfeld, a designer who put even the most adroit multitaskers to shame and whose uniform (staunchly starched collars, ponytail) became the stuff of legend. 

With “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” Andrew Bolton, the Costume Institute’s Wendy Yu curator in charge, and longtime Lagerfeld collaborator Amanda Harlech, the exhibition’s creative consultant, have the tall order of synthesizing the designer’s career into about 150 looks. But thankfully, at this year’s Met Gala, paying tribute to Mr. Lagerfeld is not a task solely for the curators, as the 2023 dress code is “in honor of Karl.”
