The Met Gala 2023 was held at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on 1 May to celebrate the museum's annual fashion exhibition. This year, Indian actor Alia Bhatt made her debut appearance on the iconic red carpet. Priyanka Chopra, Isha Ambani, and Natasha Poonawalla were other Indians who marked their presence at the event.
Although the Met Gala follows a strict no phone, no social media policy, some attendees gave us a glimpse of what was offered to the guests for the sit-down dinner at the event.
The theme for this year's Met Gala was 'Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.' Reportedly, the menu was also inspired by the late designer's love for dinner parties and was planned by Olivier Cheng.
According to Vogue, the menu was picked from Lagerfeld's dinner that he put together for designer Paloma Picasso and Rafael Lopez-Sanchez after their wedding in 1978. It included some of Lagerfeld's favourite dishes.
For starters, the guests were served a chilled spring pea soup with baby vegetables, lemon creme fraiche, and truffle snow. For the main course, the menu had Lagerfeld's favourite Ora King Salmon with a vegetable nage (broth), asparagus, pickled strawberries, and radish. The drinks included wine and Diet Coke, reported Vogue.
Here, take a look at the menu:
The iconic Met Gala has been organized and presided over by Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue Magazine, since 1995.
