The model has been attending the Met Ball since 2015 — long before she was Mrs. Bieber — and brings her fashion A-game every single time. She has opted mostly for classic glamour (read: her simple LBD and sunglasses from 2021’s gala), but has also taken some big risks — like that time she walked the Met steps in a sequin gown that had a crystal-encrusted thong built in. It was a moment andalso helped propel the visible thong look back into the fashion zeitgeist.
There’s no way to know exactly what Bieber will bring to the table this year. With the Met Gala’s 2023 theme being “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” the dress code is wide open to interpretation — and can draw from the late designer’s decades worth of contributions to fashion. So you can expect attendees — this style icon in particular — to go all out in their most extravagant “white tie” tributes.
Ahead of the big night (Monday, May 1), let’s take a haute minute to look back at what Bieber has worn in years past — from tulle tiers to powder pink hair to all-over sequins and more.
