2022 Met Gala Red Carpet: Best Dressed (Live Updates)

It’s early May, which means it’s time for our favorite stars to don their most extravagant outfits while posing on the grand steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This year, the theme of the Met Gala, Vogue’s annual A-list event, is “Gilded Glamour,” and funds raised from the celebratory night will benefit the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Celebrity guests lucky enough to receive an invitation to fashion’s biggest night are expected to adhere to a strict dress code.

Based on the subject and the time it dates to, which is between 1870 and 1890, contestants will likely wear exaggerated dresses with lots of ruffles and bows. It could also be some elbow length white gloves, tulle dresses and top hats.

While tuxedos were popular during this era, we hope none of the guests play it safe and don a classic black tuxedo that shows up everyone Year.

Hosts Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Regina King, along with honorary co-chairs Anna Wintour, Tom Ford and Adam Mosseri are sure to set the standard.

So who has put on their best white-tie attire and avoided being pulled off Twitter for ignoring the topic? Check out the list of the best looks at the 2022 Met Gala.
