Superstar Nigerian singers, Burna Boy and Tems made their debut at the 2023 edition of the prestigious Met Gala event which took place on Monday night, May 1.
The 2023 theme was ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’ to honor the late Karl Lagerfeld, who was a regular attendee at The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute.
The Met Gala is arguably the biggest posh fundraising event in the world. It is held annually at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
The average entrance ticket for regulars at the Gala is a staggering $30,000, while VIP and VVIP cost a lot more.
The self-acclaimed African Giant, known for his scintillating performances and his daring yet impressive sense of style, did not disappoint and neither did Tems.
Burna Boy turned up in a matching black and blue slightly checkered outfit and a generous cape-like extension of the same material flowing behind him.
Interestingly, the singer had a twin fashion moment when Irish actor Barry Keoghan turned up in a similar ensemble.
While fans are still yet to recover from the beautiful fashion moment Tems had at the 2023 Oscars, the singer returned to the red carpet with yet another head-turning look.
She was a beauty to behold in a black-and-white ensemble. The dress, one of Robert Wun’s latest signature designs, featured a black corset-like top, a flowing regal white finish at the bottom, and elbow-length gloves.
Nigerians have taken to Twitter to analyze the outfits of both musicians. While some applauded them, others teased. See more photos and reactions:
