Anna Winter Appears
Winter arrived at the Met Gala accompanied by actor Bill Nighy.
Karl Lagerfeld was “a very kind person,” Vogue editor-in-chief, gala organizer and mastermind Anna Wintour was asked what people misunderstood about the late designer.
She also said, “I hope he understands that many people love and respect him.”
theme of the year
Every Met Gala has a theme, and this year it pays tribute to the late Karl Lagerfeld, the prolific designer for Chanel and other brands.
The Met Gala has always favored the bold as well as the beautiful, but with the theme tied to Lagerfeld this year, expect some restraint.
Alex Badia, WWD’s style director, said, “This is basically how the Met goes back a little bit to what it used to be, and it’s about fashion, it’s about celebrating heritage and history.
Gala raises money for the Met’s Costume Institute and spotlights a new exhibition at the museum.
The late Lagerfeld was celebrated in “A Line of Beauty”, and festival organizer Anna Wintour wrote that the event was a tribute to life itself, a celebration in its purest form.
Attendance at the event is by her invitation only, and ticket costs are much higher this year.
“Yeah, $50,000 for one ticket, $300,000 for a table…not pennies,” Badia said.
Badia said he expected the guilt list to lean toward tradition.
who will attend?
“They also center around old school celebrities,” he said.
“Nicole Kidman, you have Penelope Cruz and old school names in attendance.”
But that doesn’t mean there’s no room for reality stars. Last year, Kim Kardashian wore the dress Marilyn Monroe famously sang “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy.
This year, she visited Paris to pay with Lagerfeld’s pet cat, Choupette.
“Choupette has become synonymous with Karl Lagerfeld,” Badia said. “They were together everywhere.”
A great excuse for the stars to really shine.
