The stars are shining right now, so get ready to watch 2023 Met Gala online. The exclusive, glamorous event is an annual fundraiser for the benefit of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
The Met Gala typically invites high-profile celebrities from across movies, television, music and sports. This year, the event is honoring the late designer Karl Lagerfeld, in advance of the museum's new spring exhibition, "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty."
The host of the Met Gala, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, is joined by celebrity co-chairs Dua Lipa, Michaela Coel, Penelope Cruz, and Roger Federer.
While the invite list is kept top-secret, Kim Kardashian and other members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan are likely to attend. However, Met Gala mainstay Blake Likely has confirmed she will not walk the red carpet this year. Fans are speculating about the appearance of big names like Taylor Swift, Zendaya and Rihanna.
