Pierce Brosnan and his wife of 22 years, Keely Shaye Smith, seemed as in love as ever on Monday evening as they attended the 2023 Met Gala in New York City.
The James Bond star, 69, and the journalist and novelist, 59, looked dapper as they posed for shots on The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s famed staircase.
Pierce looked dashing as usual with a black patterned suit, a fresh white shirt, and a bow tie.
The award-winning star wore gleaming shoes and red-tinted Oliver Peoples eyewear.
Meanwhile, Keely flaunted her stunning curves in a black sequin gown with a transparent diamonte cape that cascaded to the floor.
She merely wore a pair of pearl drop earrings and wore her long dark hair in a voluminous do.
Fashion’s greatest night is back, with a plethora of celebrities prepared to climb the legendary staircase in just a few hours.
The 2023 Met Gala will return to New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday evening, with everybody from Kim Kardashian to Paris Hilton expected to attend the annual fundraising event.
Since 1948, celebrities have climbed the magnificent staircase into a highly private gathering where selfies are not permitted.
The event will take place on the first Monday of May, as is customary. It is set to commence on May 1, 2023 at 6:30 p.m. EST.
Fans may watch the event develop in real time on Vogue’s livestream.
The ball’s theme this year is Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. Chanel’s longtime creative director was the late German designer. He died in 2019 at the age of 85.
Choupette, his favorite cat, has even been invited to the celebrations.
The choice to honour Karl has aroused debate due to the many inappropriate statements he has made over the years, ranging from criticising the #MeToo movement to opposing same-sex marriage.
He is opposed for one simple reason: in the 1960s, everyone thought they had the choice to choose. And now, all of a sudden, they want a bourgeois life, he said of same-sex marriage. It’s tough to see one dad working and the other staying home with the infant. What would it be like for the baby? He is not sure. He sees more lesbians married with children than he does males married with children. And he believes in the mother-child bond more than the father-child relationship.
While he eventually supported same-sex marriage at his spring 2013 Chanel haute couture show, he was still ‘less keen’ on same-sex couples adopting children, according to the Associated Press.
Along with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, who oversees and hosts the annual event, Penelope Cruz, Dua Lipa, Michaela Coel, and Roger Federer will co-host the MET Gala in 2023.
While the show is recognized for its glitzy and extravagant red carpet, with specifics of what happens inside often remaining a mystery, at its heart, it is a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
The 2022 MET Gala alone collected $17.4 million last year.
The admission fee has been hiked from $30,000 to $50,000 this year.
Even if you have the money, you won’t be admitted to the party. Every visitor must be invited, and there is a waiting list for the coveted golden ticket.
Status counts, so the hottest stars are a foregone conclusion.
Paris Hilton is among the celebrities who will attend her first Met Gala.
Meanwhile, Blake Lively, a regular attendee, has announced that she will not be attending the party. She said that she would be watching.
Other celebrities attending include Elle Fanning, Kim Kardashian, and La La Anthony.
In terms of Wintour’s involvement in the party, the editor-in-chief of Vogue organizes the event and monitors the guest list and even the meal.
She has been the chairperson of the Met Gala since 1994 and continues to serve on every occasion.
