Twice as many goals! The Met Gala 2023 gave top-of-the-line couples the opportunity to showcase their best fashion and coordinate their styles.
Rita Ora And Taika Waititi were one of the first couples to arrive on Monday, May 1, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The couple paid tribute to former Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, who died in February 2019, with the theme “Karl Lagerfeld: A Beauty Line”.
The 32-year-old Praising You artist was the epitome of glamor in a black Prabal Gurung gown that flowed behind her in two long strips of fabric. Sheer tulle hugged her silhouette, and floral details adorned the bottom of the train.
47-year-old Waititi perfectly complemented his wife in a chic gray coat and white trousers.
The pair were first linked in early 2021 after having crossed paths three years earlier. They officially announced their romance on Instagram in February 2022 and soon the duo sparked wedding rumors. Ora confirmed in a radio interview earlier this year that she and the director had gotten married.
“I chose to keep it more private and keep it to myself, but with my new video, I’m playing on what could have been,” she said in January, referring to her “You Only Love Me” music video.
