Teyana Taylor gave sharp suiting a sparkly upgrade for the 2023 Met Gala in New York tonight. The multi-hyphenate superstar was among the many A-list stars to make an appearance at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Taylor paid tribute to the late Karl Lagerfeld by wearing a silver sequin outfit by Thom Browne. The “A Thousand and One” actress put her own spin on sophisticated style by swapping trousers for a sleek low-rise skirt. She complemented the slit skirt with a form-fitting double-breasted blazer that gave the illusion of a bodysuit due to its V-line hem and long gloves.
Taylor layered her overcoat with a white button-down shirt and a black tie. Adding a dose of edge to the look, the “Bare Wit Me” singer covered her short dark pixie with a mesh veil and continued to accessorized with dark aviator shades and a black rose handbag.
Taylor’s footwear choice was not visible underneath her pants. However, it is likely that she tied her outfit together with a platform silhouette, strappy sandals or trendy sneakers. The entertainer tends to gravitate towards sky-high styles and statement-making heels for appearances and events.
When it comes to fashion, Taylor is known for her versatility. She has a personal fashion aesthetic that combines streetwear swag with high-fashion glamorous looks. She has made a name for herself within the fashion industry by collaborating with UK-based online retailers, PrettyLittleThing and Reebok.
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.
