The 2022 Met Gala is officially here and back in its usual time slot, the first weekend of May, after being pushed back due to Covid-19.
The annual fashion extravaganza took place on 13 September last year and was cancelled the year before due to the pandemic. Tonight, nearly 400 celebrities will attend the event in New York City and walk the red carpet on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
This year’s theme is “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” with the dress code listed on the invites as “Gilded Glamour,” and is part two of an exhibit from the museum’s Costume Institute. The first part of the exhibit, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” was the theme of the 2021 Met Gala.
Per usual, Vogue’s Anna Wintour will be running the gala, just like she has since 1995, and has organised the celebrity guest list for the night. Along with Blake Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds, the event will be hosted by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Regina King.
