Grammy-winning artist Dua Lipa stunned the crowd as she walked out onto the red carpet in a 1992 archive Chanel bridal ball gown, which was perfect for the night's festivities.

To celebrate this year's Met Gala theme, "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty," the pop star chose to wear the gown worn by supermodel and Lagerfeld muse Claudia Schiffer. Claudia wore the bridal gown when she closed a Chanel fall runway show in 1992.

Penélope Cruz, an Oscar-winning actor, practically floated on the red carpet wearing an enchanting, fairytale-like bridal gown that honored the theme.

The Parallel Mothers star decided on an icy blue Chanel ball gown that was inspired by a design that previously debuted in Chanel's Haute Couture Spring/Summer 1988 collection.

The beautiful gown was adorned with gemstones that delicately cascaded down a flowing layered skirt. The frock also boasted details like sequins and pearls on the bodice. A translucent organza hood lined with silver sequins completed the look. Penélope draped the hood over her sleek, slicked-back bun. She accessorized with drop earrings and cinched her waist with a matching belt.

Penélope Cruz helped Dua Lipa fix her hair on the red carpet at the Met Gala.

In a sweet, nurturing moment caught on camera, Penélope was seen brushing Dua Lipa's hair. Carding her hair delicately with her fingers, it felt like the world was stepping in on a moment between an older and younger sister helping each other look their best.

Both co-chairs looked absolutely gorgeous and stunning in their different takes on Karl Lagerfeld's iconic bridal couture.

It's so heartwarming to see two queens look out for each other.
