Dua Lipa and Penelope Cruz are the co-hosts of the “Met Gala”

Dua Lipa and Penelope Cruz are the co-hosts of the “Met Gala”. The Met Gala is the most popular, extravagant and high-profile event in the fashion industry, which has been held annually since 1937 on the first Monday in May, with the help of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.

The Met Gala is a widely anticipated event for fashion aficionados, whether they’re the celebrities and designers gracing the famous staircase or viewers ecstatically watching from their sofas at home as they arrive. It is notably recognized as the fashionable scene’s counterpart to the Academy Awards.

The private event serves as a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, officially known as The Anna Wintour Costume Center after the editor-in-chief of Vogue, who has served on the gala’s planning committee since 1995.

Along with the event, the invited guests have a so-called “dress code”, a pre-selected theme, according to which their glamorous red carpet outfits are created months in advance. The theme of the Met Gala in 2023 is Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. Co-organizers of this year’s event will be: Dua Lipa and Penelope Cruz, Michael Corley and Roger Federer. They are the ones who will help Anna Wintour at this year’s “Met Gala“.
