How We Would Style The 2023 Met Gala

It’s almost here: fashion’s biggest night. Often dubbed the “Oscars of fashion” the Met Gala is a charity fundraiser held every year on the first Monday in May to benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute and to celebrate the newest fashion-related exhibition. 

It’s also the fashion world’s hottest social event, where a secret list of invited celebrities will gather on the red carpet in a pageant of themed bespoke and couture designs. Since 1995, the guest list has been carefully presided over by Vogue editor Anna Wintour with only around 600 people making the cut each year. And who these lucky invitees are will be revealed to the public as they make their way up the legendary museum steps and into the event.

In years past, the Met Gala’s themes have been as wide-ranging as Gilded Glamour; In America: A Lexicon of Fashion; and Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, prompting guests and their team of designers and stylists to interpret the meaning in the most over-the-top displays imaginable. But this year’s theme is more straightforward and emotional with a tribute to the late Karl Lagerfeld.

With a career spanning more than 70 years, Lagerfeld's impact on the world of fashion cannot be overstated. As a German fashion designer, artist, and photographer, Lagerfeld began his career in fashion in the 1950s, working as an assistant for Pierre Balmain. He later worked for other fashion houses such as Jean Patou and Chloé before taking on the role of creative director at Fendi in 1965. In 1974 he launched his own eponymous fashion label, and in 1983 he was appointed as creative director of Chanel, where he helped revitalize the brand and turn it into a global fashion powerhouse. And In 2004, Lagerfeld received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. He passed in 2019 in Paris at the age of 85.

No doubt the evening’s looks will pay homage to Lagerfeld’s iconic designs. But there’s sure to be some avant-garde mixing based on each attendee’s personal style. And while we can only assume who these guests will be, we created a list of those we’d love to style and the Holly Yashi accessories that will set them apart in a sea of ostentatious glamour.

Dua Lipa

This colorful songstress is adored for her disco-meets-1990s-throwback vibe with a dash of neon pop thrown in for fun. In her world, the brighter, the better. So of course something levitating, like niobium’s mega-watt radiance, is the way to go.

Gigi Hadid

Open a fashion magazine, any fashion magazine, and you’re sure to see Gigi’s heart-stopping blue eyes and blonde tresses gracing multiple ad campaigns. At just 28 years old, she’s already an icon. Much like those quintessential pearl necklaces Lagerfeld made famous for Chanel.

Kristen Stewart

A little bit rocker, a little bit chic, the Chanel ambassador is adored by film directors and fashion designers alike. But more recently, movie-goers were smitten with her Oscar-nominated performance of Princess Diana. No question, our Diana necklace and cuff bracelet are a must.

Blake Lively

Fashion fans hailed Blake as the winner of last year’s “it” dress when she arrived in a crystal and metallic leather art deco gown that paid homage to the Statue Of Liberty. Tiara? Check. Opera gloves? Check. World’s biggest bow that unfolds into a train? Check. She understood the assignment and there’s talk that her sartorial choice this year will be just as dramatic. We think our Delia Earrings and Evelina Necklace in plum will help her make an equally extravagant entrance.

Her talent is undeniable. Her style is… indescribable. Which means awaiting Tilda’s Met Gala arrival is the ultimate spectator sport. Whether lavished in lace elegance or poised in punk couture, Tilda commands attention with flawless confidence. Our jewelry choice plays both sides of the style coin with pieces that are equally romantic and the slightest bit arresting.

Penelope Cruz

As one of this year’s co-chairs, Penelope is responsible for curating the guest list, working with chefs to create the thematic menu, and helping define the atmosphere by assisting interior designers with decor choices. In other words, all eyes will be on her. It makes sense that her accessories should be exceptionally colorful and eye-catching.
