Met Gala 2023: All the Stars in Thom Browne’s Class Photo (Exclusive)


Ahead of the Met Gala on Monday evening, May 1, nine of designer Thom Browne’s A-list table guests gathered at the Pierre Hotel for a class photo, shared exclusively with The Hollywood Reporter.

The star group – who look bold and elegant in high-contrast, black and white looks designed by Browne and inspired by the Met Gala 2023 dress code, “In Honor of Karl (Lagerfeld)” – included Wednesday star Jenna Ortega, singer Olivia Rodrigo, singer and actor Janelle Monáe, Succession star Alexander Skarsgård, rapper Pusha T, model Sora Choi, race car driver Daniel Ricciardo, multi-hyphenated star Teyana Taylor and NBA player Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

Browne, in a statement to THRdescribed the group of individuals as “some talents” wearing looks that honored “A Karl, a pioneer of design for two centuries” and in designs that were “married together in tailoring … deconstructed and reconstructed.”

Ortega added a preppy twist to her signature goth aesthetic, wearing Thom Browne’s black chiffon tweed cropped jacket and a matching jacket draped as a skirt (both embroidered with gold and pearl chains), over a crisp white organza shirt.

Rodrigo (who wore Versace and Saint Laurent at previous Met Galas) tonight wore Thom Browne’s black and white silk and tweed dress, a design that appeared to be made of rope, save for the camellia flowers (a favorite of both Karl Lagerfeld and Coco Chanel). ) at the top.

And Monáe, pictured center, caused quite a stir on the Met Gala red carpet in a bold oversized half-black, half-white Chanel-inspired tweed suit worn over a crinoline. She later took off the exaggerated jacket to reveal a black bikini underneath.

“Oh my god this is so Thom Browne. I’ve been working with Thom Browne since the beginning of my music career,” said Monáe THR on the red carpet and described the look as “if Thom Browne, Karl Lagerfeld (and) Janelle Monáe had a threesome.”
