Met Gala 2023 theme

But first, a little background on this year’s theme. “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” pays homage to the late German fashion designer who had stints as a creative director at Chanel, Fendi, Chloé, and, of course, his namesake brand. However, some people are wondering why he was chosen to be the inspiration for this year’s theme when he was controversial for his fatphobic, racist, and misogynistic remarks.

But with his character aside, his work has been well-loved in the fashion industry. So with that, here are the Asian celebs who took inspiration from his work and shone with their stellar outfits at the Met Gala.
