The Best Bags of the Met Gala Madness 2023

Fittings, parties, the main event and more brought out some great bag eye-candy!

In case you missed it, the main event in fashion, The 2023 Met Gala, went down on Monday, and with it came an influx of celebs to NYC. While in the days (and the day of) leading up to the event, uptown is abuzz with celebs coming and going, when the Gala comes to a close, downtown too is the place to be for post-gala partying. This year, there were well over a handful of after-parties to attend, from one hosted by Dua Lipa to another put on by Emily Ratajkowski, plus big soirees held by brands like Chanel and Cartier.

As to be expected, as celebs attended fittings, the main event, and partied until the sun came up, they did so with their favorite designer bags in tow. Take a look below!

Crystal carries from Judith Lieber, New Bottega, Chanel, and more!

Chloe Fineman attended the 2023 Met Gala wearing a custom gown by Wiederhoeft with a Judith Leiber crystal cat bag, an ode to Karl Lagerfeld’s beloved pet cat Choupette.

If you’re looking to spot a celeb during Met Gala week, the place to be is the Upper East Side, specifically The Mark Hotel, where many of the Gala’s attendees will stay. After the big event was over, Met Gala co-chair Dua Lipa was spotted leaving the Mark Hotel with the latest from Bottega Veneta.

Clerking twins works. They are a mess regardless. If I wasn’t invited to main event I would just stay home.

Auto correct changed Clermont to Clerking — LOL! I forgot to look them up so shout out to Mel for the information. Now I have to look up Bad Girls Club. BTW, I think they were at an after party. I would have remembered seeing them in one the many Met Gala roundups.

I just don’t get it! If this is supposed to be a tribute to KL why on earth would anyone carry ANY bag other than Chanel ? Duh !
Shaking my head.
