Countless designs from the 90s catwalk were recreated at the Met Gala 2023 fashion stage, varying with the theme of “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” but still retaining the spirit of the designer and personality. of each person.
From the ’90s runway to the 2023 met gala red carpet
Met Gala has not cooled down yet with countless outstanding faces. However, the public’s attention is turning to the performances on the red carpet filled with impressive designs from famous fashion houses. The co-host of this year’s event, who is accompanied by “queen” Anna Wintour, are famous names: Dua Lipa, Michaela Coel, Roger Federer, and Penelope Cruz. With the important position of the top names, it is not too difficult to understand that the catwalk fashion of the past and the expectation of the return of the countless designs that make Karl Lagerfeld’s name are more interesting. on the red carpet.
In general, the designs appearing in the 2023 Met Gala revolve around Karl Lagerfeld’s contributions to the fashion career. Chanel, Fendi, and his personal brand name all contain his worldview, which not only revolves around the classic image, but the beauty of Karl’s catwalk clothes and also emphasizes convenience and practicality.
Besides, Karl strongly believes in the power of technology and innovation to create change and drive creativity. Therefore, innovation and novelty are always found in his designs.
This year’s theme focuses on the life and career of Karl Lagerfeld, the powerful designer, and the man who changed the fates of many luxury brands. The appearance of a series of costumes in his design treasure is also something that everyone can predict. Margot Robbie scored when she brought the design that former supermodel Cindy Crawford wore in 1993 back to the public. This design from Chanel’s Paris Fashion Week collection features a PVC waist cut-out detail and the brand’s classic gold chain.
In general, the two outfits do not have much difference, while keeping the asymmetrical skirt line, a long silk band, and an eye-catching piercing waist. However, if Cindy Crawford creates a classic feel with a bit of Renaissance aesthetics, Margot Robbie has a modern and sharp beauty.
Dua Lipa captured the hearts of fans with her sophisticated beauty when wearing a classic tweed dress, reminiscent of Karl Lagerfeld’s legacy when accompanying Chanel. To go with this simple design, the singer teamed up with a Tiffany & Co necklace. had a silver pendant and let her dark hair loose. This appearance caused Dua Lipa to be associated with the image of the Cinderella princess in the fairy party by the media.
Compared with the same design from 1992 Fashion Week, the appearance of Dua Lipa gives a feeling of luxury and royalty. In particular, instead of combining with the classic hat style like how German supermodel Claudia Schiffer used to appear in the form of a bride. The skillful use of accessories to enhance the dress shows a sophisticated style and harmonizes with the spirit of the event.
In tribute to Linda Evangelista in her glamorous 1991 pearl design, Lizzo brought to the Met Gala a sleek black Chanel dress accented with pearl lapel. The female vocalist of “About Dam Time” is highly appreciated for her choice of costumes that match the theme.
Not talking too much about the influence of Karl in these two outfits, but, compared to Linda Evangelista’s appearance, Lizzo brings a new and more punk-oriented image. Considering Karl’s disruptive and daring DNA, this outfit of the female singer really deserves attention when skillfully bringing the classic image together with the modern music style.
“IT-Girl” Kendall Jenner is inherently not too strange with sexy dresses that are … offensive. However, her recent appearance at the after-party Met Gala 2023 surprised her with unexpected beauty. The dress chosen by Kendall Jenner this time has a transparent back of the skirt, mixed with black lingerie and pearl straps. It is known that this design was worn by female supermodel Nadja Auermann with a liberal and hot overall on the catwalk in 1993.
Not as rebellious and sexy as Nadja Auermann, Kendall Jenner brings a slightly futuristic image when using a simple hairstyle and half-tied head. However, her classic makeup style balances the overall look and creates a new image.
Since wearing a Halloween-themed outfit on the cover of her 2020 album “Punisher”, Phoebe Bridgers has been able to transform her “skeleton” image into her brand symbol in performances, music videos, and events. even red-carpet appearances. This appearance of Phoebe Bridgers again makes the creepy image extremely elegant in a design designed by Tory Burch. More seductive, and more unexpected, the sophistication in each form and the sophistication of using pearls to recreate the skeleton not only preserves the personality of the vocalist “Scott Street” but also honors Karl’s legacy through how he used pearls in fashion.
When compared to Naomi Campbell in 1996, Phoebe Bridgers’ beauty tends to be more elegant and feminine. In the 1990s, Naomi’s style would focus on mixing haute couture and basic clothing, so the female model feels both familiar and personal in this appearance.
“Living Chanel” Jennie Kim, the last muse chosen by Karl Lagerfeld herself, comes to the Met Gala for the first time to honor the late artist’s legacy. The female singer had a successful debut at a fashion party with a design reminiscent of the design from the autumn 1990 collection.
Part of the Autumn-Winter 1990 collection was stored in Chanel’s warehouse. The dress was designed by Karl Lagerfeld with pleated strap details and a signature camellia flower, combined with black tights and heels. Her outfit clearly shows Karl’s thinking about fashion during the reign of Chanel and how the brand convinces the public with its timeless beauty in its simplest form.
The highlight of Jennie’s appearance at the Met Gala must be the Korean Joseon-inspired braided hairstyle. While Chanel conveys the image of an elegant French lady, Jennie’s charm lies in the way of embedding Asian traditional culture in front of friends from all over the world.
