The late fashion designer’s choice of subject is not without controversy, with some criticizing her unflatteringly critical comments on a variety of topics, including xenophobic and fatphobic comments. AP Entertainment Writer Leanne Itelli, who will be anchoring our coverage tonight, breaks down the designer’s multifaceted legacy.
What to expect from this year’s Met Gala
This year’s theme centers around the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new exhibition “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty”. Given that Lagerfeld was, of course, a fashion designer, you can expect a lot of eye-catching looks.
