I’m Convinced This Met Gala 2023 Trend Is Actually A Fuck You To The Karl Lagerfeld Theme

Everyone’s eyes are glued to the rolling coverage of the looks on the Met Gala 2023 red carpet, searching for iconic moments and viral memes — but there’s something else I’ve been on the lookout for. Specifically, shade aimed at Karl Lagerfeld
known bigot who passed away in 2019 “no one wants to see curvy women” which has a mortality rate of 20 per cent “there’ll always be a place for you in the covent” He was also racist once said Precious Lee Quinta Brunson Quannah Chasinghorse Ashley Green

Harvey Guillén showed up in a suit in the same pink hue, and Cardi B slayed in a dress the same colour (though she had an outfit change, and wore a black and white ‘fit on the red carpet in true Lagerfeld fashion).

. And yes, there certainly were plenty of fuck-yous to the . “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” is the controversial theme for this year’s Met Gala, designed to honour the long-time creative director of Chanel . This might have been fine (though extremely boring) had it not been for the fact that Lagerfeld was quite a nasty bigot. Some notable blights on his legacy include his insistence that on runways, his determination to maintain only women who were a size 0 in his brand, and his assertions that anorexia — — is actually not as bad for society as fat people. As if it couldn’t get worse, he also said he was “fed up” with models coming forward with sexual assault allegations, famously telling any model that doesn’t want to be groped that 2018. . Gross. Basically, he’s not the kind of guy most decent people would want to honour — and the lack of celebrity pushback has been concerning to say the least. We get it, you don’t want to lose your invites, but have a fkn stance, will you? Not everyone has stayed completely silent though, with what appears to be a quiet little rebellion against Lagerfeld’s legacy taking place on the red carpet. Karl Lagerfeld “See life in pink, but do not wear it!” and I can’t help but think some celebrities used pink as a “fuck you” to him. , a prominent plus-sized Black model who’s worked with the likes of Versace and Fendi, had a hot pink cape attached to her dress which I just know Lagerfeld would have hated. An absolute slay. also appeared in a pale pink gown, as did Native American activist . Plus-sized model also wore a pink gown that pays homage to an existing Chanel gown, and while she didn’t seem to have a stance on Lagerfeld’s fatphobic comments, it’s still satisfying to see her slay in an adaptation of a gown he would have never allowed a curvy women to wear if he was still alive. Were all these celebrities purposefully shading Karl Lagerfeld with their pink dresses and unapologetically curvy bodies? We can’t say for sure. But there’s something beautiful in knowing such a nasty man’s style is being appropriated by people he would disdain.
