Every May 1, it's time for the star-studded Met Gala! Every year, this ultra-exclusive event is themed to match a new Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute exhibition opening. Careful planning by top fashion designers is overseen by Anna Wintour from Vogue magazine editor-in-chief Anna Wintour - past themes have included Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination and Punk Chaos to Couture respectively - however 2023 theme honoring Karl Lagerfeld has created quite an uproar as his controversies resurface as gala approaches.

Are You Wondering If Lana Del Rey Is Attending the Met Gala 2023? This year's Met Gala, themed "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty," honors the life and legacy of legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld while also commemorating its new exhibit featuring his sketches and outfits from Chanel, Fendi, Chloe, Balmain among other notable fashion houses such as Chloe & Balmain - attended by celebrities dressed to impress in haute couture designs from Chanel Fendi Chloe & Balmain designs from his time spent working at Chanel Fendi Chloe & Balmain among others - was streamed live to millions globally while live memes regarding singer Jason Derulo falling down stairs have surfaced during its run (which never occurred!). It has even produced viral memes over its history like one debunking one that claimed singer Jason Derulo fell down stairs (he didn't).

No doubt that this year's Met Gala will make headlines, yet not everyone receives an invite despite all of the buzz and controversy. Some A-listers are even skipping this year's event entirely!

Lana Del Rey made headlines by not attending this year's Met Gala, in light of her controversial relationship with Karl Lagerfeld - who once called her "a little too fat." Nonetheless, later clarified by saying he meant she has a stunning face and divine voice.

Unfortunately, their differences became too great and Lana decided not to attend this year's event despite reports she intended on doing so. Her absence is especially disappointing considering there had been speculation that she planned on being present at some point during this year.

Though Lana won't be attending, some of our other favorite A-listers will. Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, model-turned-actress Blake Lively and model Michaela Coel as well as Roger Federer will be present, along with Penelope Cruz Michaela Coel Roger Federer and Dua Lipa (this year's co-chairs).

Hosted at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art and streamed live on YouTube, social media, and the website from 6:30 p.m. ET until 10:30 p.m. ET (check website for times), guests are expected to arrive.
