Last night was the highly anticipated Met Gala, and it did not disappoint. The theme of the night was “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” paying tribute to the legendary fashion designer who passed away in 2019.

The Met Gala is always a highly anticipated event, and this year was no exception. With a theme like Karl Lagerfeld, everyone was expecting to see some amazing fashion moments. And boy, did the celebrities deliver.

From the classic Chanel suits to the bold prints and colors, the guests were dressed to impress. Some standout looks included Doja Cat’s white Oscar de la Renta dress, Jenna Ortega’s black and white deconstructed high-low Thom Browne look, and Bad Bunny’s backless creme suit by Jacquemus.

The Gala may have been all about Karl Lagerfeld and his iconic style, but there was one uninvited guest who managed to steal the spotlight for a brief moment. Yes, you heard it right, a cockroach crashed the Met Gala red carpet, leaving guests in shock and horror. The little critter scurried across the red carpet and almost made its way into the crowd before being swiftly removed by security. Some guests were terrified, while others found it hilarious, jokingly calling it the “Met Gala cockroach”. Despite the unexpected visitor, the show went on, and the Met Gala continued to amaze us with its stunning fashion and unforgettable moments. Who knows, maybe next year the cockroach will make a reappearance, dressed to impress in its own tiny designer outfit.

Last night had its fair share of memorable moments, but one that stands out is when A$AP Rocky jumped over a fan on the red carpet. The rapper, who is known for his energetic performances and daring fashion choices, was trying to get inside his hotel. Not wanting to make a scene the rapper pushed to the front of the crowd and jumped over a fan, using her face as leverage. The moment was caught on camera and quickly went viral on social media. It’s safe to say that A$AP Rocky jumping over a fan will go down in Met Gala history as one of the most unforgettable moments of the night.

The real showstopper of the night was Rihanna, who showed up at the last minute and stole the spotlight. The singer arrived in a gorgeous white floral gown with intricate detailing and a train that trailed behind her. The dress was a true work of art and paid tribute to Lagerfeld’s love of iconic bridal looks.

Many fans were left feeling disappointed when they realized some of their favorite stars were not in attendance. The absence of Blake Lively, Lady Gaga, Lily Rose Depp, Zendaya, Tom Holland, Timothy Chalamet, and Harry Styles left many fans wondering what could have been. These stars have been known for their fashion-forward outfits and bold fashion choices, and it’s safe to say that the Met Gala would have been the perfect place for them to showcase their unique sense of style. But fear not, fashion lovers, there were still plenty of show-stopping outfits that left us speechless. Maybe next year, we’ll get to see these stars grace the Met Gala red carpet and steal the show with their iconic fashion choices.

Overall, the 2023 Met Gala was a night to remember. The tribute to Karl Lagerfeld was fitting, and the guests did not disappoint with their fashion choices. But it was Rihanna’s last-minute appearance that truly stole the show. With her stunning dress and undeniable star power, she reminded us all why she is a true fashion icon.
