It’s been almost a year since the last gala at the New York Metropolitan Museum where we saw spectacular outfits like Blake Lively’s and controversial moments like the Marilyn Monroe dress worn by Kim Kardashian.
In just months, the event returns and we already have a better idea of what we will see on the carpet.
The gala will accompany an exhibition honoring Karl Lagerfeld, the iconic designer who passed away in 2019 after a successful career creating dreamy garments at the design houses of Chanel, Fendi and Chloé.
Vogue announced that Penelope Cruz, Roger Federer, Dua Lipa, Michaela Coel and Anna Wintour will serve as the official co-chairs of the evening.
Cruz, who recently earned his fourth Oscar nomination, was one of Karl Lagerfeld’s muses. At movie premieres and at awards shows, the Spanish actress always wore her designs and epitomized the brand’s classic glamour.
Along with her, the legendary tennis player Federer, the young singer Lipa, the English actress Coel and, as every year, the editor of Vogue Wintour, honor Lagerfeld’s memory and designs.
The gala will take place on May 1, at the facilities of the Metropolitan Museum of New York.
Days later, the exhibition opens to the public, so all fashionistas living in New York or visiting the city can see “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” with more than 150 original looks from the designer, exploring his creative output from the 1950s to his final collections in 2019.
