This year, the gala is being held on April 1, EDT. The theme, Karl Lagerfeld: A Line Of Beauty, honors the life and work of the late fashion designer and the emblematic leader of Chanel.
Many media outlets predicted this year’s star-studded guest list to include some of the biggest names in K-Pop, including BLACKPINK‘s Jennie and Rosé, GOT7‘s Jackson, and BTS‘s Jimin. So far, Jennie and Jackson have both made their appearances on the carpet, looking like a million bucks.

But while ARMYs were waiting for Jimin to turn up, an unexpected sighting took them aback.
With a pair of denim pants, a matching denim jacket, and a black-and-white graphic t-shirt underneath, it seemed almost as if Jungkook had walked straight out of his Calvin Klein photoshoot on the streets of New York.
But there was something off…this version of Jungkook looked way too small, and why was Kylie Jenner standing right there? Well, because it wasn’t actually Jungkook at the MET, it was Kylie’s daughter, Stormi!
While walking out of the prestigious Carlyle Hotel, Kylie got photographed with Stormi, and there is no denying that her look might remind one of Jungkook, specifically of his one particular airport look from last month. But she brought her own oomph to the look, taking it to the next level with her cute space buns and adorable face.
