Julia Garner was a vision of beauty and style at the 2023 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday night.
The 29-year-old actress looked elegant as she walked the red carpet in a custom Gucci ice silk dress with a halter neckline and pearl-lined collar.
The Emmy Award-winning actress paired the dress with a black velvet headpiece at the chronicle of fashion’s biggest night.
The New York-born Riverdale star, who previously worked with the high-fashion label, appeared with her top open, revealing a sparkly, sinister interior.
Garner, who plays Ruth Langmore on the Netflix series Ozark, wore her wavy blonde locks to the side while sporting gold cornucopia earrings.
Elizabeth Saltzman styled the Inventing Anna star for the big night in the Big Apple.
Garner stood alongside fellow actresses Halle Bailey and Daisy Edgar Jones, who were dressed in Gucci at the ceremony.
Garner has a pair of thrillers slated for release, including Hotel Royal; and apartment 7a.
Garner was among a number of stars who attended the annual fundraiser, with everyone from Kim Kardashian to Paris Hilton set to attend.
Since 1948, stars have climbed the majestic ladder to a very exclusive party where no selfies are allowed.
In keeping with tradition, the event will take place on the first Monday in May. It is scheduled to start at 6:30 PM EST on May 1, 2023.
The theme for this year’s ball is Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. The late German designer was Chanel’s longtime creative director.
He passed away at the age of 85 in 2019, and his beloved cat, Choupette, was invited to the festivities.

The decision to honor Carl has generated controversy due to the many offensive statements he has made over the years, from criticizing the #MeToo movement to opposing same-sex marriage.
I’m against it for a very simple reason: In the ’60s, they all said we had the right to be different. And now, all of a sudden, they want a bourgeois life,” he told an MP on same-sex marriage.
It’s hard to imagine one dad at work and the other at home with the baby. How is that for a child? I don’t know. I see more lesbians married with children than I see boys married with children. I also believe in the relationship between mother and child more than I believe in the relationship between father and child.
While he finally showed his support for same-sex marriage at Chanel’s Spring 2013 Haute Couture show, he said he was still “less keen” on same-sex couples who adopt children, according to the Associated Press.
Along with Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, who directs and hosts the annual event, Penelope Cruz, Dua Lipa, Michaela Cowell, and Roger Federer will also host the 2023 MET Gala.
While the show may be known for its glamorous, glamorous red carpet looks — with details of what happens inside often kept a mystery — it’s also a fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
Last year, the 2022 MET Gala alone raked in a grand total of $17.4 million, according to a Billboard report.
This year, the admission price was raised from $30,000 to $50,000, according to Page Six.
