From Gossip Girl to Swarm, numerous shows have attempted to recreate the chaotic magic of the Met Gala, but nothing beats the real thing.
Some of the biggest names in TV, movies, music and beyond descended upon New York’s The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday for the 2023 gala (aka celebrity prom).
This year’s theme is Karl Lagerfeld, pegged to the museum’s new exhibit Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, describe as a celebration of “the designer’s stylistic vocabulary as expressed in aesthetic themes that appear time and again in his fashions from the 1950s to his final collection in 2019.”
And this year’s hosts (did you know there were hosts?) represent nearly every facet of the entertainment industry: Michaela Coel, Penélope Cruz, Roger Federer, Dua Lipa and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
Other big names spotted on this year’s Met Gala carpet include: Gabrielle Union, Nicole Kidman, Olivia Wilde, Quinta Brunson, Ariana DeBose, Phoebe Bridgers and Rita Ora.
Unfortunately, just as the Met Gala giveth, the Met Gala also taketh away. Blake Lively, a staple of the event, announced last week that she will not be attending. (First Vanessa Hudgens skips Coachella, and now this? Hollywood is really losing the plot here.)

Gossip Girl (2021)’s Met Gala was so much better than the real thing.
Most everybody looked good.
Some completely missed the mark.
So I don’t find it as interesting as in the past, BUT I do still enjoy seeing all the looks. Anne Hathaway and Cardi B. were my favorites. I liked Jenna Ortega’s look as well.
Wouldn’t it be nice if instead of celebrities who could care less it’s just another show off they would spend the money from the clothes for children or homeless or vets. Not one of those attending care about anything but themselves or how their body is showing.
Hands down … Viola Davis, Jennifer Lopez, Ann Hathaway and Nicole Kidman… The guy in the clitter mask and speedo’s was an absolute disgrace and should have been ask to leave.
What about Janelle Monae in her bikini? Lady Gaga a few years ago in her underwear? A good portion of women have see-through dresses each year. But men should just stick to suits and tuxedos, right?
