Met Gala 2023: Best Afterparty Looks

Met Gala 2023: Best Afterparty Looks

The 2023 Met Gala, an homage to the late Karl Lagerfeld, was a walk down memory lane. Current and former Chanel muses were abundant on the carpet and so were campy tributes to Lagerfeld himself. Take Jared Leto, who came as a cat to honor Lagerfeld’s beloved Choupette. Though looks from the carpet are the most anticipated, judged and debated, sometimes the afterparty is where the fun is. 

After a night of mingling and admiring the Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty exhibition, celebrities then drove off to various afterparties. For many, it was also a chance to loosen up and dress without the pressure of being on theme. And dare we say it, some looks were better than the ones on the Met Gala carpet. 

Here are some of the best looks from the afterparty: 

Margot Robbie

Robbie, the last muse Lagerfeld hand-picked, opted to wear a black and white minidress from Chanel F/W 2016. Paired with a black and white handbag, was an overall fun complement to the sleeker Chanel Spring 1993 Couture dress worn on the carpet.

Emily Ratajowski

Next, a custom look by Turkish-British designer Dilara Findikoglu was Emily Ratajowksi’s choice of afterparty wear. The sheer dress with vertical panels was accented with silver chains and pearls – another reference to Lagerfeld’s Chanel aesthetic.

Kendall Jenner

Supermodel Kendall Jenner, a Chanel bride and one of Lagerfeld’s favorites, wore a Chanel S/S 1994 inspired look by Nensi Dojaka. Inspired by nineties street style and pop culture, the look is a perfect example of the zest and playfulness of Chanel in the 90s.

Doja Cat

Keeping in theme with her feline-inspired Met carpet look, the musician channeled a sphinx in custom Oscar de la Renta. The ombre two-piece consisted of an embroidered fringe top and draped skirt.

Rita Ora

Lastly, always a sucker for classics, singer Rita Ora referenced the famous look worn by Linda Evangelista in Chanel’s 1992 Hip Hop campaign collection. The black two-piece was also decorated with an abundance of pearls and gold jewelry, capped off with a brown fur coat.
