Olivia Wilde made a dynamic statement on the red carpet at the 2023 Met Gala. She arrived on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for the occasion on Monday night, wearing a Chloé dress.
The “Don’t Worry Darling” director’s attire, designed by Gabriela Hearst, featured a long white base with a high neckline, short sleeves and a column skirt. The piece gained a sleekly artistic edge from a shimmering gold oval mesh panel in its center, with added flair from two sharp cutouts on either side.
Wilde’s outfit was finished with swinging diamond drop earrings, as well as two wide gold mesh arm cuffs for an armored effect.
When it came to footwear, Wilde’s shoes could not be seen. However, it’s likely the “In Time” actress’ pair featured an open-toed sandal silhouette with block or stiletto heels, given her penchant for wearing each on the red carpet over the years.
The Met Gala raises funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and celebrates the Costume Institute’s annual exhibits. This year’s theme, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” celebrates the life and career of designer Karl Lagerfeld. The 2023 event is notably co-chaired by Dua Lipa, Roger Federer, Michaela Coel, Penelope Cruz and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
