Gisele Bündchen Brings the Drama in an Extremely Long Feathered Cape at the 2023 Met Gala
Gisele Bündchen has returned in full force to the Met Gala.
The supermodel wowed on the carpeted steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she wore a white Chanel gown with sparkling sequins arranged in vertical white striped panels. The centerpiece of the outfit, however, was the extremely long feathered cape that trailed behind her.
Bündchen had previously worn the Chanel creation for a 2007 Harper's BAZAAR Korea photoshoot.
Bündchen last attended the Met Gala in 2019. Accompanied by then husband, Tom Brady, the model wore a metallic dusty pink pleated gown by Dior's Maria Grazia Chiuri. The iridescent dress, which was made sustainably, featured a plunging neckline, a belted waist, cape sleeves, and a dramatic skirt.
This year's Gala's theme, "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty," pays homage to the life and legacy of the late Chanel creative director.
The Costume Institute describes the spring 2023 exhibition as an exploration of "the work of Karl Lagerfeld. Focusing on the designer’s stylistic vocabulary as expressed in aesthetic themes that appear time and again in his fashions from the 1950s to his final collection in 2019, the show will spotlight the German-born designer’s unique working methodology."
The exhibition will additionally showcase about 150 of Lagerfeld's designs, as well as some of his sketches, both of which "underscore his complex creative process and the collaborative relationships with his premières, or head seamstresses. Lagerfeld’s fluid lines united his designs for Balmain, Patou, Chloé, Fendi, Chanel, and his eponymous label, Karl Lagerfeld, creating a diverse and prolific body of work unparalleled in the history of fashion."
