This year's gala will take place May 1.

Organizers previously announced that the theme for the 2023 gala and spring exhibition will honor late fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, the former creative director of Chanel and Fendi.

The "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty" exhibit will examine the work of Lagerfeld, who died at age 85 in February 2019.

Vogue said Wednesday that this year's Met Gala dress code will be "In honor of Karl." Attendees might wear an archival look from a label where Lagerfeld designed, a modern-day design from one of the labels, or emulate Lagerfeld's personal style of dressing.
