Met Gala 2023 date, dress code revealed: Dua Lupa, Michaela Coel to co-chair Karl Lagerfeld-themed event

New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is ready to get the full glam treatment in just a few months.

The Met Gala, the annual benefit for the museum’s Costume Institute that gathers fashion and pop culture’s most famous and powerful people, will take place May 1 — following its usual calendar placement on the first Monday in May. The theme, which corresponds with the changing fashion exhibit, will honor late designer Karl Lagerfeld.

Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour announced the 2023 theme during Paris Fashion Week in September. Vogue announced the date, the famous names who will co-chair the annual fundraiser alongside Wintour and the official dress code on Instagram Wednesday.

“Paying tribute to Mr. Lagerfeld is not solely a task for the museum’s curators: the 2023 dress code is ‘In honor of Karl,’” the publication wrote.

Here’s everything to know about the Oscars of fashion.

When is the Met Gala?

The 2023 Met Gala will take place May 1.

Last year’s Met Gala, themed “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” marked a return to the event’s annual schedule for the first Monday in May after the pandemic caused the 2020 gala to be canceled and the 2021 gala to be postponed to September.

What is the 2023 Met Gala theme?

Stars, influencers and fashion figures attending the Met Gala this year will be honoring late designer Karl Lagerfeld. 

The German-born couturier worked for decades simultaneously as creative director of many fashion houses including Chanel, Fendi and Chloé in addition to helming his eponymous international fashion label. He died in 2019 at 85.

The Met’s costume institute exhibit will transform to reflect  “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” and will see some 150 of his creations assembled together to see his “stylistic language,” a Met press release says. Lagerfeld’s original sketches will also be on display.

Who will co-chair the Met Gala with Anna Wintour?

The exclusive invite list for the Met Gala is mostly under lock and key until the stars arrive on the red carpet for cameras to see. However, a handful of stars are announced as co-chairs ahead of time.

This year Michaela Coel, Dua LipaPenelope Cruz and Roger Federer will host the extravagant event alongside Wintour.
