On Friday, the organizers for fashion's most celebrated event revealed that the 2023 theme will honor the creative director of Chanel.

Per the official press release,"Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty," will "explore the artistic methodology and stylistic vocabulary of Karl Lagerfeld's designs through recurring themes across more than 65 years, from the 1950s to his final collection in 2019."

The overseer of Fendi, who was best known for his white hair, sunglasses, and fingerless gloves, died in January 2019 from complications of pancreatic cancer.

Lagerfeld often collaborated with several celebrities for the yearly event, including Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, and Sarah Jessica Parker.

The 2023 Met will take place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 1 with the exhibition that will feature the late German designer's 150 creations will be open to the public until July of next year.

This year's event, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, honored the tenets of American style and the unsung heroes of US design.

Many may recall that it was also the night when Kim Kardashian controversially wore two of Marilyn Monroe's iconic gowns, one of which was the famous "Happy Birthday" dress.
