4 Event Lessons from the Met Gala 2023

After the Met Gala brought us striking scenes and outrageous fashion, here are the lessons we learnt for a show stopping event.


1. You don’t have to be controversial to make a statement

With this year’s theme paying tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, many celebrities took on controversial looks, such as Jared Leto’s human sized cat costume that uncannily characterised Lagerfeld’s beloved feline, Choupette (of whom was not in attendance). 

However, those celebrities voted the ‘best dressed’ took on the tagline of the late designer’s fashion house, “fashion changes but style endures”; i.e. timelessness and reservedness will forever be favoured at any event.

Lily Aldridge, Margot Robbie and Dua Lipa in modest gowns were some of the most tweeted and chronicled stars at the event. Therefore, some of the best events needn’t be grandiose or ostentatious, but rather execute simplicity well to ensure timeless and raving reviews.
