The annual Met Gala came around once again this year with a new theme memorializing Karl Lagerfeld, a popular fashion designer that recently passed who worked for many high-end fashion companies such as Chanel, Balmain, Patou, and more. This theme is slightly different than the Met’s past themes such as “Camp,” “Heavenly Bodies,” “Punk,” and others. 

Many celebrities succeeded in their Met Gala looks as expected, others were disappointed, and some others unexpectedly hit the bullseye. 

Starting with the Kardashians, there are mixed emotions about both Kendall and Kylie Jenner for their ideas. With Kylie’s look, it was much different than most people there had on. She wore a vibrant red and a baby blue, in a nice fitting odd-shaped dress. Some were very impressed with it, and others were the exact opposite. A lot also believed she was right on the theme, and others believed she completely missed it. As for Kendall, most people are in agreement that her look was an interesting choice. Many like the sleeves that seem to drupe down and trail behind, but she has some odd aspects to her dress, like a collar or her shoes, which most just don’t like. 

Jenna Ortega, Met Gala, 2023

Jenna Ortega, attending her first Met, introduced what most people would call a “Monster High” look. Jenna Ortega is quickly growing fame with all the movies she has done over the course of  2 years, such as “X,” “Scream 6,” “Scream 7,” and her Netflix series “Wednesday.” She will likely be seen for several more Met Galas to come. 

Billie Eilish also attended. Many people weren’t totally wowed by her look but you gotta admit, she does look great.

This was Paris Hilton’s first-ever Met Gala, which might stun most people, knowing the fashion icon she is. What she came wearing was the total opposite of her style, dressing in all black as opposed to a bedazzled pink, but it was perfectly on theme.

Blake Lively at the 2018 ‘Heavenly Bodies” Met Gala

The usual attendee of the Met Gala, Blake Lively, failed to show, leaving many fans disappointed because she is the one that always hits the bullseye on Met Gala looks and steals the show.

 With much controversy to many outfits, and controversy to the theme, lots of looks did great at the Met Gala, and others can always try again next year.
