The Met Gala® celebrated the show’s opening, with co-chairs Michaela Coel, Penélope Cruz, Roger Federer, Dua Lipa, and Anna Wintour
The Metropolitan Museum of Art presented The Costume Institute’s spring exhibition, Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. The show spotlights Lagerfeld’s unique working methodology, focusing on the late designer’s stylistic vocabulary as it was expressed in through lines – aesthetic and conceptual themes that appear time and again – in his fashions from the 1950s to his final collection in 2019. More than 150 garments will be on display, and Lagerfeld’s sketches will accompany most of the pieces, underscoring his complex creative process and collaborative relationships with his premières d’atelier.
Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty is now on view from May 5 through July 16, 2023.
The Costume Institute Benefit (also known as The Met Gala®) took place with Michaela Coel, Penélope Cruz, Roger Federer, Dua Lipa, and Anna Wintour serving as co-chairs for the event, which provides The Costume Institute with its primary source of annual funding for exhibitions, publications, acquisitions, operations, and capital improvements.
