The Met Gala is among the most important events of the year in fashion and celebrity culture, and this year’s lineup was one to remember. What were the best looks of the year? Read on below for some of the celebrities that hit the theme perfectly.

What was this year’s theme?

The theme for this year’s Met Gala was “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” which paid tribute to the late designer’s body of work and explored his artistic methodology and stylistic vocabulary through his sketches and designs from his six-decade career.

Karl Lagerfeld was a prolific designer who passed away at the age of 85 but left behind an impressive legacy. He started his career in fashion as Pierre Balmain’s assistant in 1955 and went on to work for many brands including Charles Jourdan, Chloé, Krizia, Valentino, and Fendi.

Cardi B

Cardi B attended the Met Gala wearing a black corset gown to channel Karl Lagerfeld. The floral ball gown was embroidered with massive black roses and she wore a white collared shirt and matching black necktie underneath. Cardi even wore a silver wig to keep the monochromatic look and match Lagerfeld’s silver hair.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas

Dressed in Valentino to pay tribute to Lagerfeld’s time working for the company, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas stunned in matching black and white getups. Priyanka wore a classy black strapless gown with a large bow at the waist and some black Valentino platform pumps. Nick wore a sleek black suit with a leather jacket, white shirt, and black studded tie. The couple both also sported Bulgari jewelry.

Salma Hayek

Going against the monochromatic grain most people wore to the event, actress Salma Hayek instead wore a stunning bright crimson ruffled Gucci ball gown and matching red platform pumps. To perfectly accent the look, Hayek wore her hair in a ponytail held by three red rosettes.

Pedro Pascal

Hayek wasn’t the only one wearing red to the event though, as actor Pedro Pascal came in an eye-catching cherry red outfit. The Last of Us star wore black shorts and a black tie paired with a red shirt and long red coat. To top off the look, Pascal wore a pair of shiny black combat boots with long black socks. The entire outfit was created by Valentino.

Dua Lipa

As one of the hosts of the Met Gala this year, singer Dua Lipa was under some pressure to dress well for the event, and she certainly delivered. She wore an off-white tweed Chanel ball gown perfectly reminiscent of Lagerfeld’s design flair. Just as impressive was the 200-karat Tiffany & Co. necklace the singer wore to the event.

Jenna Ortega

Jenna Ortega, who is one of the most popular celebrities of the year thanks to her performances in Wednesday and Scream VI, wore an unusual gothic black dress that feels perfectly fitting of Wednesday Addams. The black Thom Browne corset dress featured pearls and gold chains, and was complemented by Ortega’s retro black and white platform shoes.
