Black celebrities attended the Met Gala 2023 in droves, marking the arrival of fashion's biggest night. Fundraising for the Metropolitan Museum of Art will be done at the charitable event.

The outfits, as usual were stunning and audaciously artistic with a dash of bizarre. Stars from all walks of life attended, but Black musicians, actors and sports grabbed attention when they showed up for the breathtaking occasion.

The Theme

Karl Lagerfeld was honoured as this year's Met Gala theme. He is known for his role as Creative Director of Chanel. The brands well-known Ambassador, Pharrel Williams unveiled the theme in September and Monday fashion fans were treated to  the interpretations of the celebrity of the concept of the night.

Many attendees donned monochromatic black and white looks, several with a retro flair that exuded the Chanel aesthetic. However, it would not be the Met Gala without some unique twists along the way.
