Met Gala 2023: The most sustainable on-theme looks this year

Ellen Fitzpatrick

And that’s a wrap for another year.

Another year, another Met Gala and this year appeared to be one of the most sustainable balls of them all.

With the theme of Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, many guests arrived wearing vintage pieces or gowns the designer had created for them years previous.

The theme reflected the Metropolitan Museum’s latest collection which showcased Lagerfeld’s vast career, displaying the work he did for Fendi, Balmain, Chloe and of course, Chanel.

Many guests arrived in looks that were vintage, with a lot of celebrities showing up in gowns they had worn before.

This year’s gala was expected to be the most sustainable yet due to the theme, and it did not fail – but who did it the best?
