 MET GALA 2022

The Met Gala 2022 is a bang! This is the glorious time of year when A-list celebrities ascend to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and give all the spectacle on the red carpet. It's an exciting moment for fashion aficionados everywhere, whether waiting in line outside the museum or wondering what occurs inside the Met Gala and who was on the guest list, all in the world are eagle-eyed at the fashionable moments presented by the stars.

From Met Gala 2021’s theme America: The Lexicon of Fashion, this year, the Met Gala 2022 will carry on the 'In America' theme from the previous year. The dress code for this second installation, titled 'In America: An Anthology of Fashion,' is gilded glamour and white tie. The name is inspired by Mark Twain's novel The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today, and it depicts the current social and political atmosphere.

The dress code appears to be a more sensible approach to America's huge fashion spectrum. It's a reminiscence of the Gilded Age, which lasted roughly from the 1870s to the 1900s. Indeed, the official exhibits for the year will be on display in the Metropolitan Museum's period rooms.

From head to toe to the tip of the lashes, here are the details of some of the star’s gilded fashion and lash glamour on the Met Gala 2022 red carpet!
