Gigi Hadid has done it again!
As one of the most highly anticipated attendees, Gigi did not disappoint in her edgy yet feminine outfit, showcasing her impeccable fashion sense.
Gigi Hadid led the naked dress trend at the 2023 Met Gala in an edgy and completely sheer all-black dress custom-made by Givenchy 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 28-year-old model took on the evening’s theme, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” with the utmost respect and elegance.
Gigi’s Givenchy gown, designed by creative director Matthew Williams, was made of delicate black tulle with a stunning floral motif that gave a nod to Lagerfeld’s love for the flower.
The corseted neckline was bejeweled, and the silver metallic floral applique on the dress flowed into circular cutouts on her hips, highlighting her curves in a subtle yet sultry way.

A strip of tulle fabric was spread out behind Gigi, cascading over her shoulder and down her back in a dramatic train, amplifying the beauty of the floor-sweeping skirt with its exquisite drapery.
Zayn Malik’s ex-girlfriend added sheer tulle gloves and black Calzedonia tights to complete the eye-catching look, giving the outfit an even more sophisticated touch.
The pearls, one of the night’s biggest trends, were styled uniquely by Mimi Cuttrell, which featured the double-string choker, matching cuff bracelet, diamond rings, and pearl stud earrings from Smiling Rocks and Lagos jewelry, adding an extra hint of elegance.

Gigi opted for sultry makeup, with pearl adornments placed beneath her eyelids, perfectly complementing her pulled-back updo and mermaid waves in her platinum blonde hair.
The model sashayed into the red carpet confidently, her long legs elongated by black heels, striking pointed toes, and high-shine crystalized embellishments adorning each toe.
As one of Karl Lagerfeld’s muses and the one to close his final Fendi runway show in 2019 just two days after he passed away, it was only fitting for the Next in Fashion star to be present at the event celebrating the late designer’s life and legacy.
She graced the cover of American Vogue’s May 2023 issue, paying homage to her dear friend and mentor.

Gigi took to Instagram to share about it last month, writing, “Being a small part in Karl’s grand legacy, and experiencing his genius, humor, and warmth, is an honor of my life. We miss him so much. Excited to celebrate his creative world at the Met Gala next month 🤍🕊️.”
As a familiar face on the Met Gala red carpet, Gigi Hadid has become one of the event’s most fashion-forward guests. True to her reputation, Gigi again met expectations with her impeccable style choices at this year’s gala.
From her eye-catching red DVF gown in 2015 to her Old Hollywood-inspired Prada dress paired with black leather opera gloves and crystal-beaded heels in 2021, she consistently brings her distinctive sense of style to the renowned red carpet.

But her edgy superhero-inspired look from the previous year is one for the books. Gigi deviated from the expected formal attire and opted for dark red patent latex trousers paired with a matching corset and pointed-toe boots.
She topped off the ensemble with a floor-length bubble puffer coat by Atelier Versace, featuring oversized sleeves and complemented with a ruby choker.
Gigi’s magnificent golden locks were styled in an updo with architectural features, giving her a modern-day goddess vibe.
