The 2022 Met Gala was a return to Fashion’s Biggest Night on the first Monday of May. From celebrity faves to first-time attendees there was a lot to see and so many looks to love, hate, and obsess over. We’ve covered some of the best looks of the night as well as some of the awesome ways that people interpreted the “Gilded Glamour” theme (or didn’t).
Check out the articles below for our deep dives into this year’s Met Gala fashion.
The first Monday in May is always on the calendar as a style celebration. One of the most remarkable nights in fashion, the first Monday is a day when designers, celebs, and fashion lovers make history and raise money for the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Musem of Art.
Since 1995, the Met Gala has been run by Vogue‘s Anna Wintour. A major part of the Gala, Anna Wintour and this year’s co-chairs for the event, Regina King, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ryan Reynolds, and Blake Lively brought “gilded glamour” to those massive steps…
The annual Met Gala returned to its usual date on the first Monday of May this year to celebrate the opening of its second In America exhibit In American: An Anthology of Fashion. The theme for this year’s event was white-tie and “gilded glamour” to match the exhibit which covers the fashion of the 1800s into the early 1900s.
As always deciding whether the glamorous looks were on-theme or a complete miss is something fans and fashionistas love to debate. We’re not so sure the looks below are what Anna Wintour and her co-chairs imagined for a very formal (white tie literally means that guests should wear white bow ties and black tailcoats) event inspired by fashion history…
The 2022 Met Gala red carpet lasted for two and a half hours! That’s a lot of time and a lot of looks. Over the course of the night, celebrities walked up in designer looks, and we’ve been obsessing over the hits (and misses) ever since.
The theme for this year’s Met Gala was a white-tie “Gilded Glamour” look inspired by the In America: An Anthology of Fashion exhibit the gala celebrated. The exhibit is a look into scenes from American fashion from the 1800s and early 1900s when volume and excess were the peek of luxury and glamor. Not everyone followed the rules, but these celebs did it right…
We’ve been wondering what the 2022 Met Gala attendees would create based on the event’s “Gilded Glamour” theme since it was announced in mid-April. Big dresses, puff sleeves, slinky silent film gowns, and long gloves were all expected, but the fashion of the night wasn’t just about the silhouette. A white-tie event, this year’s Met Gala was all about the formal looks and, of course, color. Check out the celebs that were focused on how best to embody the golden in Golden Age Monday night.
We love to see people on-theme at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Met Gala, but we also love to see people play with the theme. Since each gala is tied to a fashion exhibit in the museum, there are always going to be designers and celebs who go above and beyond to match the history and silhouettes of the time period being explored. But what would the Met Gala be without the reimaginers? The people that push the limits of the theme while still matching Anna Wintour’s vision?
These looks are modernized, bold, and maybe just a few decades outside of this year’s “Gilded Glamour” theme which covered the 1800s through the early 1900s, but we’d be lying if we were saying we wished we hadn’t seen them on the carpet.
