The Met Gala once again took over NYC - and our social feeds. This year’s theme, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty”, paid homage to one of fashion’s greatest designers on one of fashion’s biggest nights.
It’s no surprise that the focus of top-performing content was the fashion looks from the event. There were several fun moments that caught social users’ attention as well, like Doja Cat’s interview with Emma Chamberlain.
