The theme of this year’s Met Gala was Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty – a tribute to the work of the late German fashion designer.

While many chose to wear his pieces or pay homage to his style, Doja Cat and Jared Leto decided to dress up as his cat, Choupette.

Kylie Jenner wowed at the event in a red one-shoulder dress.

The Kardashians star got to meet sisters Kendall and Kim Kardashian on the carpet.

The trip stopped to chat with Vogue as they walked inside.

The 27-year-old wore a black bodysuit with a glittery white collar in a nod to Karl Lagerfeld.

She was not accompanied by her alleged boyfriend, Bad Bunny – born Benito Antonio Martinez Ocasio – who is attending the event.
