Cardi B served two looks at the 2023 Met Gala, and both were absolutely stunning! She kicked off the evening while leaving NYC’s The Mark Hotel in a gorgeous pink chiffon gown. The gown also had florals on the back which bloomed out like wings behind her.
However, when she reached the red carpet, she was wearing a sleek tuxedo gown with massive black roses and a Karl Lagerfeld-inspired grey hairdo. Fashion enthusiasts noticed that her looks were likely in reference to Chanel’s Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2017 show where Lily-Rose Depp walked in a frilly, powder pink gown and Lagerfeld later joined her on the runway in a sleek, shiny tux.
“This skirt is giving Chanel Boy bag, and the flowers — when you get a Chanel purse, you always get white flowers but this one is black. Up top, it’s giving Karl,” Cardi said on the red carpet. “I’m representing the House of Chanel and Karl at the same time.”
Her outfits compliment this year’s theme, ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’, which is meant to honour the iconic fashion designer, Lagerfeld and the legacy of his seven-decade career.
