Met Gala 2022: the best red carpet fashion

Check out all the best looks as the stars arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on Monday night.

The Met Gala is fashion’s big night – and celebrities are known to save their most striking outfits for its often theatrical red carpet.
The pandemic-related postponement means it’s less than eight months since stars last descended on the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the (normally) annual fundraiser, giving creators less time to think about code event attire: “Gilded Glamor and White Tie.” The theme is set to continue exploring American style in 2021, in line with the Costume Institute’s two-part exhibit, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.”

At the exhibition’s pre-gala press event, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden delivered a keynote address at the Met, highlighting the “rich and deep” history of American design.

“It’s a story of innovation and ingenuity, rebellion and renewal,” she said. “It has often been written by those in the shadows, not recognized for their influence and artistry, but here at the Met their stories are told. Their voices rise and their work can shine.”

Ahead of Monday night’s red carpet, one of America’s quintessential designers, Tommy Hilfiger, whose work features in the show, told CNN the event offered designers a chance to “showcase their unique takes on fashion. and pop culture”.

“I always look forward to seeing how designers interpret the theme with their own creativity, identity and flair, and I’m sure this year will be no exception,” Hilfiger said via email. “The Met Gala is about having an open mind and thinking outside the box.”

For former Yeezy designer Maisie Schloss, who now runs her own Los Angeles-based label, Maisie Wilen said the combination of high fashion and fundraising mainstream appeal made it red carpet ” unique”.

“Events embraced by industry insiders and the masses allow for maximum creativity,” she said over email, adding, “I hope guests bring out their most decadent yet playful looks. “

This story and photos will be updated throughout the night. Scroll down to see some of the best outfits from the event.
