The event was dedicated to honoring Lagerfeld’s remarkable legacy, and as a close friend and muse of the late designer, Delevingne made a stunning appearance on the red carpet.
Cara Delevingne arrived at the 2023 Met Gala dressed in an ensemble that paid homage to her days as Karl Lagerfeld’s muse at the 2023 Costume Institute Benefit celebrating “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 1, 2023, in New York City (Credit: Abaca Press / INSTARimages)
The 30-year-old model and actress looked sensational in a reimagined white button-up shirt by Karl Lagerfeld Couture, complete with striking sleeves and a plunging neckline, one of Lagerfeld’s signature looks.
To complement the shirt dress, Delevingne paired it with thigh-high black leather leg warmers, black strappy Stuart Weitzman Nudist sandals that you can buy on Nordstrom, fingerless black leather gloves, and jewelry courtesy of Chrome Hearts.
Delevingne’s outfit was not only a stylish tribute to Lagerfeld, but it also showcased her own fashion sense and creativity.

Her hairstylist Danielle Priano revealed they planned to create a “show-stopping wig and style to pay homage to Karl, his creativity, and bond with Cara.”
Priano added that they drew inspiration from their previous campaigns and decided to “modernize these references by creating and styling a cool, shag-style wig to celebrate their history and bring the past to life.”
The Only Murders in the Building star’s fashion-forward ensemble stood out on the Met Gala red carpet. It demonstrated her deep admiration for the late designer’s enduring influence on the fashion industry.
We all know Cara Delevingne is talented when it comes to modeling, but as it turns out — she’s got a few more party tricks up her sleeve as well.

In July 2016, the model-turned-actress performed a fantastic water bottle trick during her guest appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
And what makes Cara’s stunt even more impressive? She did it in a little black dress and high heels.
