Dua Lipa will co-chair Met Gala 2023 - entertainment news

Dua Lipa has been given the honor of co-chairing this year’s Met Gala.

The 27-year-old pop star is among the famous faces helping to host the glitzy event in New York City in May, joining actresses Penélope Cruz and Michaela Coel and tennis player Roger Federer on the panel along with the famous Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

Dua announced the news in a post on her Instagram page that read: “Excited to announce that I am one of the Co-Chairs of #MetGala 2023 alongside Michaela Coel, Penélope Cruz, Roger Federer and Anna Wintour. See you on the first Monday of May #CostumeInstitute Benefit.”

The 2023 event will honor fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld, who died in 2019, and support the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. It will take place on May 1 and will feature an exhibition titled ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’ that honors the late designer’s work.

Dua’s post added: “The 2023 Met Gala celebrates the opening of ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’ and provides The Costume Institute with its primary source of annual funding for exhibitions, publications, acquisitions, operations and capital improvements. # ALineOfBeauty opens to the public on May 5.”

The exhibition will trace Lagerfeld’s fashion career through the decades, featuring many of his design pieces including his sketches.

Last year’s Met Gala was given the theme ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion’ and was co-chaired by Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Lin-Manuel Miranda while the 2021 event was titled ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’ and boasted actor Timothee Chalamet and pop star Billie Eilish among those on the panel.
