Cindy Crawford is the OG bombshell in Margot Robbie’s dress

We’re only just beginning to recover from Met Gala mayhem. From catsuits (as in – quite literally cat-suits) to silver spray paint, the annual bash served up an eclectic glitterbomb of looks.

Also, there was no shortage of vintage clothing on display. Margot Robbie leaned into the theme of the night which was “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” by hitting the white carpet in a flowing black one-shoulder gown that was sourced from Chanel’s Spring 1993 haute couture collection helmed by Karl Lagerfeld himself.

Featuring a sweetheart neckline, a see-through corset, Chanel’s signature gold chain-strap detailing, lightweight draping and black boning, the number made for a subtle yet elegant Met Gala aesthetic.  Barbie added a minimalistic touch to the gown by adding two rings, a pair gold square drop earrings and a sweetheart neckline. 

Her beachy blonde curls were styled with an old-school Hollywood blowout.

Supermodel Cindy Crawford had the honour of debuting the garment during the 1993 show under Lagerfeld’s direction. She publicly showcased support for Margot’s choice of dress for the 2023 Met Gala, writing via social media: “Ode to Karl. Love seeing this look come back to life #MargotRobbie in @chanelofficial.”

Fashion fans loved the reference to nostalgia and shared their thoughts on social media. “You both look amazing and great to see an artist’s vision standing the test if time,” one wrote, while another said: “You, my dear, are a hard act to follow, but Robbie was lovely.” A third added: “Two super beauties” and a fourth noted: “Both beautiful.”
