The "Blink and You'll Miss It" Trend That Took Over the Met Gala Carpet Lily Collins Getty Images We never associated a sheer train bearing the name "KARL" in glittering capital letters with high fashion until we saw Lily Collins in this custom Vera Wang look. Jeremy Pope Getty Images Jeremey Pope's custom Balmain cape saw Lily Collin's train and said, "respectfully, hold my beer." Not only did Pope's train extend down the entire tricolor Met Gala staircase, but it also featured a full sketch of Lagerfeld's distinct profile. Naomi Campbell Getty Images Naomi Campbell worked closely with Lagerfeld throughout her career, and chose to honor the designer by wearing an archival Chanel look from the Spring/Summer 2010 Couture collection. Dua Lipa Getty Images Going back even further into the Chanel archives, Met Gala co-chair Dua Lipa also wore Chanel. Her full-skirted black and white ballgown is from Chanel's Fall/Winter 1992 Couture collection, and was originally worn by one of Lagerfeld's favorite models and muses, Claudia Schiffer. Olivia Wilde Getty Images Olivia Wilde's Met Gala look hails from a different fashion house. Her custom Chloé gown was inspired by Lagerfeld's famous Chloé violin dress. While the original dress, designed by Lagerfeld in 1983, was shorter and black, the reference is unmistakable. Stephanie Hsu Getty Images In another nod to the man himself, Stephanie Hsu's Valentino gown featured Lagerfeld's beloved black and white color palette as well as his signature tie.
