Some of the trends at the 2023 Met Gala were definitely on our Karl Lagerfeld theme bingo card. Black and white? Definitely. Pink? Without a doubt. Slightly less expected, however, were the rosettes that took over the Met Gala carpet. While some celebs turned out dripping in crystals and hair bows, many were also spotted sporting rosettes decorating their couture gowns, including these celebs.

Rihanna in Valentino

Rihanna arrived fashionable late, and covered entirely in rosettes. Her Valentino coat – can we call it a coat? We're calling it a coat — was definitely one of the biggest statements of the night (no small feat when you recall that Jared Leto dressed up like a literal cat).

Olivia Rodrigo in Custom Thom Browne

Olivia Rodrigo's custom Thom Browne gown managed to adhere to the theme of the night while still serving up a healthy portion of the singer's whimsically edgy pop punk vibe.

Irina Shayk in Yohji Yamamoto

The gorgeous rosettes on Irina Shayk's archival Yohji Yamamoto were undeniably gorgeous, but forgive us for being a bit more obsessed with the fact that the model and mother chose to wear flats for fashion's big night out.

Vanessa Hudgens in Custom Michael Kors

Combining cut-outs and rosettes in a single custom gown designed by Michael Kors? That's what we call a slay.

Chloe Fineman's custom Wiederhoeft midi dress was decorated across the bust and off-the-shoulder neckline with dozens of blooming rosettes. The black and pale pink shimmering florals added a dazzling effect to Fineman's fingerless opera gloves and deliciously on-theme cat bag, a nod to Lagerfeld's beloved Choupette.

Rita Ora in Prabal Gurung

Rita Ora's Prabal Gurung gown wasn't only sheer and stunning with visible corset boning throughout, it also features a gothically romantic scattering of rosettes across the length of the gown *and* its long train.

Unlike other celebs who opted for looks that featured rosettes above the waist or scattered throughout their looks, Liu Wen's Tory Burch gown featured a garden of white rosettes across its tulle underskirt.

Daisy Edgar-Jones in Gucci

Another fresh take on the rosette trend? Daisy Edgar-Jones's two-piece Gucci ensemble. Her look's decadent crop top flowed into a ribbon necklace which featured a single, sequined rosette.
