This year’s Met Gala honored Karl Lagerfeld’s life and legacy, and many celebrities in attendance paid him homage by wearing positively bridal dresses. Here are five red carpet looks that were inspired by the “Chanel bride” trend that always closed out Lagerfeld’s runway shows.
Met Gala co-chair Dua Lipa fully embraced the “Chanel bride” trend in Chanel’s vintage 1995 gown originally worn by Claudia Schiffer. She finished the look with a 100-carat Tiffany & Co. diamond necklace.
Pearls were one of Karl Lagerfeld’s signatures, and Kim Kardashian’s dress would certainly make him proud. Her Schiaparelli gown featured a silky corset bodice, while the rest of it was entirely made of pearls.
Hathaway did a great job merging the DNK of Channel and Versace into a single dress. Her white gown looked straight out of the 90s and featured everything from pearls to safety pins.
Rihanna’s Met Gala outfits never disappoint, and she gave us two looks in one this time around. She brought some drama to the red carpet with a floral Valentino hoodie, and later took it off to reveal an equally stunning white dress.
Bündchen attended the Met Gala on her own for the first time since 2006 and looked better than ever in the vintage 2007 Chanel couture gown. She made the look even more dramatic by wearing a feathered cape.
