The Met Gala, which took place on May 1 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City saw celebrities step out dressed to the nines.

The theme was Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, in tribute to the legendary designer who died in 2019.

This year, monochromatic looks dominated the red carpet, especially white, black and blush. Pearls also featured heavily on the stars ensembles.

"On top, she was completely covered in large white flowers, encircling her bodice and head. White, fingerless-gloved hands poked out from the amorphous shape, while her custom, camellia-topped Gianvito Rossi heels emerged from under her skirt as she walked. White sunglasses with large faux lashed protruding off the frames then finished off the ensemble," W Magazine reports.


The Kardashian-Jenner sisters, Kim Kardashian, Kendall and Kylie Jenner graced the carpet dressed to the nines in their own unique tributes to Lagerfeld.
