The Met Gala returned to New York Monday night in its usual first Monday in May slot, after 2021’s event was held in September due to the pandemic. The event is frequently referred to as fashion’s Oscars, meaning its the ultimate night for major fashion moments. So who was best dressed of the bunch? Click the gallery above to see a breakdown.
The two-party theme centered around American fashion saw its second part on the first Monday in May of 2022, themed “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.”
The evening was co-chaired by Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Regina King and Lin-Manuel Miranda, with Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, Council of Fashion Designers of America chairman Tom Ford and head of Instagram Adam Mosseri continuing their roles as the Met Gala’s honorary co-chairs. The dress code this year asked attendees to go for white-tie ‘gilded glamour’ looks inspired by the Gilded Age in New York, which spanned 1870-1890. In Vogue’s own words, “Dust off Edith Wharton’s ‘Age of Innocence’ and ‘The House of Mirth.’ The 2022 Met Gala will ask its attendees to embody the grandeur — and perhaps the dichotomy — of Gilded Age New York.”
The exhibition that the gala supports, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” will open on May 7 to the public.
