Don’t worry, it’s just a dress.
Olivia Wilde took it as a compliment that Vogue China editor-in-chief Margaret Zhang showed up to the 2023 Met Gala wearing the exact same dress as her – but in black.
“Great minds 😎,” Olivia captioned a side-by-side image of the ladies on her Instagram Story on Tuesday. “If you’re going to pair up with someone do it @margaretzhangn 😍.”
Zhang reposted Wilde’s post on his own page, adding, “CUE THE STRINGS 💪💪💪🎻🎻🎻”
Both women were inspired by a vintage 1983 Chloé dress designed by none other than Karl Lagerfeld, who was the winner of the evening.
Lagerfeld designed for Chloé from 1963 to 1983, and again from 1992 to 1997, when he created the elegant cutout dress with a gold violin motif on the front.
Wilde teamed up with Chloé to revamp Karl’s original design by lengthening the hem, turning the cap sleeves into a cape and emphasizing the violin shape with gold beads.
She accessorized the look with gold bracelets and a gold clutch, similar to how it was presented on the runway 40 years ago.

“Artistic Director @GabrielaHearst lovingly reimagined the Chloé Spring/Summer 1983 ‘Angkor’ dress designed by Karl Lagerfeld as a floor-sweeping dress in deadstock ivory silk cady, with cutout back and short cape, embroidered cuff with hand-embroidered and embellished with gold rhinestones and tubular beads forming a trompe-l’oeil image of a violin,” the brand wrote on its Instagram on Monday.
Meanwhile, Zhang made her own changes to the dress, adding a long train from the neckline and gold sequin detailing along the hemline.
The Vogue editor kept her accessories minimal, simply donning a pair of black sunglasses and a thin gold bracelet.
Wilde first attended the Met Ball in 2013 and then again in 2015 with then-boyfriend Jason Sudeikis. The last time she was there was in 2016 when she wore a black studded Michael Kors halter dress on the “Manus x Machina” red carpet.
Although this appears to be Zhang’s first time attending the star-studded party, she is sure to become a future staple at the prom.
Zhang was appointed editor-in-chief of Vogue China in February 2021 at just 27 years old.
