The Met Gala 2023 was an event to remember, with many celebrities paying tribute to the late fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. But one celebrity in particular, Jeremy Pope, quite possibly won the night with his incredible custom Balmain 30 foot cape. The cape featured an enormous image of Karl Lagerfeld in his signature white collar, ponytail and dark glasses.
The cape was a fitting tribute to the late designer, and Jeremy Pope was clearly moved by the gesture. He took to Instagram to share a photo of himself in the cape, writing, “Tonight I wore a 30 foot cape with an image of Karl Lagerfeld. I was so honored to be able to pay tribute to him in this way.”
The cape was a true showstopper, and it was the talk of the night. It was designed by Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing, who said he was “honored to be able to pay tribute to Karl in this way.” He also shared a photo of Jeremy Pope in the cape on Instagram, writing, “A tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, the king of fashion.”
The cape was a true work of art, and it was clear that Jeremy Pope was the star of the night. His tribute to Karl Lagerfeld was a fitting way to honor the late designer, and it was a moment that will be remembered for years to come.
