The 2023 Met Gala Theme Will Pay Tribute to Late Designer Karl Lagerfeld

Check out the official theme title and all the must-know details here.

The 2023 Met Gala may be several months away, but its theme has officially been revealed. The star-studded fundraiser will celebrate late fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, who died in 2019 at age 85.

“‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’” will be the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Spring 2023 costume institute exhibition,” the official Met Gala Instagram account shared.

Additionally, Andrew Bolton, Head Curator of the Met Costume Institute, shared why honoring the late German icon is the right choice. “He would sketch everything,” Bolton told Vogue. “He would always say that he could draw before he could talk or walk. In many ways it was his primary form of communication, whether he was delivering them by fax machine or iPhone. So at its heart the exhibition will look at the evolution of Karl’s two dimensional drawings into three dimensional garments. And what’s fascinating to have discovered: I always thought that his drawings were very spontaneous and almost impressionistic. But they were in truth extremely precise, almost mathematical. We couldn’t see it because we are not trained, but his premiers knew down to the millimeter what each line meant. It was almost a secret code, a language shared between him and those premiers, that only they could fully decipher.”

The Met Gala, as always, will take place on the first Monday of May. Next year, it falls on May 1, and “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” will be on display at the museum from May 5 to July 16.
