Jeremy Pope slayed in a 33 foot train featuring Karl Lagerfeld’s face at the Met Gala

Jeremy Pope is just 30, he’s a Tony-nominated Broadway star and actor (Pose, Hollywood) and has been on the covers of Variety and THR. I mention this because I wasn’t that familiar with him until he came to the Met Gala in this amazing Balmain look featuring an enormous train with Karl Lagerfeld’s face. Balmain describes this as a silk chiffon embroidered cape with “a hand drawn illustration of Karl Lagerfeld.” Over 70 seamstresses worked on this. This is phenomenal, it’s such a great tribute to Karl and I definitely know who Jeremy Pope is now. He was there with French fashion designer Olivier Rousteing of Balmain.

Ice Spice was also in Balmain and I feel like I’m hearing about her so much lately. She was in a “custom Swarovski crystal-covered gown, complete with flowing train and peek-a-boo cutouts and embroidered by the legendary Ecole Lesage.” (Credit: Balmain’s Instagram) This is classic and amazing, I love the thin line cutouts. Ice was featured in the eBay ads that ran during the Vogue livestream. We’ll be seeing more of her. Love her cute camera purse! She carried it like a camera too.

Singer Conan Gray was in a hand embroidered pearl Balmain look. I love the twist on Karl’s classic suit and definitely noticed him on the carpet.

    I have no idea who these people are, but Jeremy Pope’s and Conan gray’s faces are chef’s kiss

    • Christine says:

      Seriously, my GAWD. All the handsome men are in this thread, I want to lick Jeremy Pope’s perfect face.

  2. SAS says:

    I dont really get Ice Spice but the boys are KILLING it here! Also love Olivier’s sassy tote.

    • Concern Fae says:

      I get that she wanted to switch up her normal look, but that dress would be improved enormously by being paired with a bright red Afro. Have to wonder if that was the dress designers plan and then the hair people switched it up without realizing.

  3. [insert_catchy_name] says:

    I don’t know who Jeremy Pope is, but he is hot AF, and looked AMAZING in that outfit.

  4. JM says:

    I love seeing all these men in exciting fashion instead of boring tuxes!

    Re: Pope’s train, at first I didn’t like the idea of having a black man “carrying” the face of a notoriously racist man down the carpet, but I saw people on Reddit reframing it as a black man dragging Lagerfield’s across the carpet and now I love that imagery!

    • Rackel says:

      I do believe that’s why so many minorities of all, was invited. Karl didn’t do bubblegum pink and yet so many people showed up in it. Did they talk this over with Anna or did they just do their own thing.

  5. HeyKay says:

    All the very, very long trains and fabric that has to be correctly placed before the photo = tiresome.

    This one makes sense to me but 30′, must have weighed a ton.

  6. Grant says:

    Jeremy Pope is so beautiful he could stop traffic. I love, love, LOVE his look! One of my faves of the night up there with Jessica Chastain.

    This is insane and I love it.

  8. Carmen says:

    Love Rousteing’s tote bag!

  9. one of the marys says:

    I’d like to see Angelina Jolie in Ice’s dress

    Jeremy Pope! Never seen him before, but he’s easily the face of 2023 and beyond. Such a sculptural, gorgeous face! And I loved the Karl Who? bag of the hot guy accompanying Conan. Yes, it’s the guys who brought it this time.
