Met Gala 2023: Karl Lagerfeld theme, When & Where to Watch

The Met Gala, also known as the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute benefit, is an annual black-tie event conducted to generate funds for the Costume Institute, the museum’s collection of fashion artifacts. It is held on the first Monday of May. Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, is the organizer of the event. Met Gala is based on different themes every year. The Met Gala 2023 theme is ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,’ which is ‘in honor of Karl,’ in memory of the iconic designer, who died in 2019 at the age of 85.
