Rita Ora and her husband Taika Waititi made a stunning appearance at the 2023 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The British singer wore a black sheer gown with floral lace appliqué and chiffon, accentuated with $90K worth of Buccellati jewellery. Meanwhile, Taika looked suave in a long gun metal blazer worn shirtless with smart white trousers and a black floral corsage. The event, which is a fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, had a theme of Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, honoring the late German designer who passed away in 2019. The show featured 14 galleries showcasing Lagerfeld’s prolific career and his creative tentacles that spread far beyond fashion into culture.
The exhibit, titled ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,’ is large in scope but intricately detailed, and clear in its message: Lagerfeld´s creative tentacles spread far beyond fashion into culture, and constantly adapted with the times. The show’s very walls have been constructed to embody the essential contradiction, or duality, in Lagerfeld´s style and persona – a series of curved and straight lines. The exhibit centers first and foremost on the dichotomy of the curved ‘S’ line (think romantic, decorative) and the straight line (modern, minimalist), with one curved wall and one straight wall in each gallery, and designs that express each aesthetic. The show argues that Lagerfeld’s longevity was due to his ability to change with the times, making him a chameleon in the fashion industry.
The Met Gala is known for its glitzy and over-the-top red carpet, with details of what occurs inside often remaining mysterious. The event is a highly exclusive party where no selfies are allowed, and every guest has to be invited, with a waiting list for the coveted golden ticket. The price of admission has been raised from $30,000 to $50,000, and status matters, meaning the hottest stars are a shoo-in for an invite. The event was co-hosted by Penelope Cruz, Dua Lipa, Michaela Coel, and Roger Federer, with Paris Hilton attending for the first time. The event raised a grand total of $17.4 million in 2022, reported Billboard.
