By now, you’re probably getting tired of all the Met Gala news circulating online, and while we loved seeing the best and worst dressed of the night, we’re definitely ready to take a break from the glitz and glam.
And it seems Chris Pratt feels exactly the same, as he revealed his disturbing “Met Gala look” on Instagram, despite not going to the event.
And the photo is so grotesque that fans are begging him to delete the post.
The largest night of the year in the fashion industry was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday. Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty was the topic, honouring one of the most illustrious careers in modern fashion. During the event, there were many examples of Lagerfeld’s legacy.
The exclusive list of attendees paid homage to Lagerfeld using his huge design archive as inspiration.
Sadly, the eminent designer passed away in 2019 at the age of 85. He was one of the most celebrated and well-known fashion designers of all time, and he served as creative director for three of the biggest fashion businesses in the world—Fendi, Chanel, and his own name-brand label—until his passing.
On the red carpet at the event, hundreds of his closest friends and coworkers wore outfits that were inspired by some of his most famous designs to honour his life’s work.
Andrew Bolton, the Met’s curator told WWD before the event: “At its heart the exhibition will look at the evolution of Karl’s two-dimensional drawings into three-dimensional garments.
“We could not do a traditional retrospective. For one thing, I think Karl would have hated that.”
He added: “Even though one of his facets was that he was a historicist, and he would revisit themes in his work, he was always looking to the future in his own work — he hated looking back at the past. It was something he had a very conflicted relationship with.”
The event, which is frequently referred to as the “Oscars of fashion,” attracts the largest A-list stars, who will dress in accordance with a predetermined theme, typically donning custom designs by the most influential fashion designers in the world.
In previous years, attendees have dressed in keeping with themes like “punk,” “camp,” and “heavenly bodies,” and there have even been occasions dedicated to honouring certain designers like Alexander McQueen and Rei Kawakubo.
Through the sale of tickets, which are purchased by designers and brands, the ball frequently generates millions of dollars for the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which hosts an annual accompanying exhibition. Each ticket is about $35,000, and if you want a table, then you’ll have to be prepared to dish out a whopping $200,000 to $300,000 for the privilege.
Although some Met Gala themes can be challenging to interpret, and can see both subtle and daring takes on the idea, this event was all about celebrating Karl Lagerfeld, so there were only two obvious ways to do this: wear one of his designs, or have something made that reflects the artist’s life.
Several guests made the decision to honour the designer by digging through the archives and donning one of his own designs. Gisele Bundchen, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Campbell, Dua Lipa, and others wore vintage Chanel, while Vanessa Kirby wore a vintage Chloé gown.
However, there were also a few very clear nods to Choupette, Lagerfeld’s cherished cat.
The actor and musician, Jared Leto took the theme to the next level. The 51-year-old walked the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art dressed as the late designer’s cat.
The Instagram account for Choupette shared: “A million thanks to all of you my fans, animal lovers & Daddy’s admirers. You have all shown the kindest enthusiasm and unconditional support, I say MERCI ! Many people invited me to walk the red carpet of the #METGALA2023 in tribute to Daddy, but we preferred to stay peacefully & cosy at home. We pay tribute to my Daddy every day since his parting and we are very moved to see one more day dedicated to him.”
Now, you might think someone dressed in a giant cat costume might be the most talked about ensemble of the night, but you’d be wrong.
It was actually Chris Pratt’s “Met Gala Look” that turned heads, for all the wrong reasons.
Now, the actor didn’t actually attend the event, but that didn’t stop him from taking part, and sharing a disturbing photo on social media of his look of the night.
One fan wrote in response: “It’s not too late to delete this.”
While another said: “You need the guardians of Podiatry.”
“Why does it look like it tells horror stories in the dark with a flash light,” a third commented.
The actor took to Instagram to share a photo of, what appeared to be his little toe, and it did not look healthy.
He captioned the post: “Met Gala Look”
What do you make of his contribution to fashion’s elite?
