The Met Gala is here once again. This year, the event is returning to its full magnitude, after a scaled-back version last year. This year’s theme “Gilded Age,” refers to the period at the turn of the century, between the American Civil War and World War One, a time when the American population and economy grew significantly.
The 2022 Met Gala is the second instalment of a two-part exhibition titled ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion.’ Part one was entitled ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’ and celebrated the Costume Institute’s 75th anniversary, exploring a modern vocabulary of American fashion.
Expect dramatic and over-the-top fashion and see what hosts Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Lin-Manuel Miranda bring to the red carpet.
Ahead, all the stunning Met Gala looks.
