Met Gala 2022 Celebrates A "Fashion Anthology" In The Heart Of New York

International stars in eye-catching outfits paraded on Monday at the annual gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met Gala) in New York for the most sparkling philanthropic event of the year.

The "Met Gala 2022" theme, "Gilded Glamor," wasn’t disappointing. The Gilded Age in the United States was a period of economic growth after the civil war that occurred in the latter half of the 19th century. In the same way, this year's Met Gala comes after two editions troubled by the pandemic with sparkle, glamour, and joy.

In line with the theme - and, of course, the dressing code - of the Gala, the stars appeared on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in strapless dresses, tuxedos, ultra-chic, hyper glamorous, shiny, or with political messages.

The first to arrive, Emma Chamberlain, a YouTube personality, wore at the 2022 Met Gala a fancy creation by Louis Vuitton. She shone in a two-piece look by the French luxury fashion house, designed by its creative director for women’s collections, Nicolas Ghesquière. Her look featured a beige puffed sleeved crop top with a floor-length white skirt.

The "high priestess" of the evening, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour surprised style-watchers by opting for a bright, floral Oscar de la Renta gown over her tradition of wearing Chanel to the event, according to usmagazine.com.

Anna Wintour donned a sheer ankle-length dress featuring a multi-colored beaded design and a feather-trimmed poncho, complementing the look with an ornate jeweled necklace and her tiara fit for a queen.

Elon Musk - With His Mother At Met Gala

Another notable presence was Elon Musk. The richest man in the world raised his arms in front of the crowd. It was his first outing since agreeing to a $44 billion deal to buy Twitter last week and, on this occasion, he promised on the red carpet to make the social network "as inclusive as possible."

"My goal, assuming everything gets done, is to make Twitter as inclusive as possible and to have as broad a swathe of people on Twitter as possible," Elon Musk said.

Musk (50), the world's richest man was accompanied by his mother Maye, 74, a Canadian-South African model.

Tickets Priced At $35,000

Guests paid $ 35,000 for a gala dinner seat, 200,000 to 300,000 dollars for the table paid by a patron, according to unofficial figures for 2021. That is an estimated total of more than 16 million dollars.

For the 2021 edition, rescheduled from May to September due to the pandemic, after a total cancellation in 2020, the show was provided by Billie Eilish, transformed into Marilyn Monroe with platinum blonde hair. This year, the singer wore a cream and green outfit by Gucci.

Political Messages At Met Gala 2022

The gala was also the occasion for a political message: New York City Mayor Eric Adams landed with a jacket that carried his campaign slogan on his back demanding "an end to gun violence" in a city bruised by crime.

In the pure American philanthropic tradition, the evening, which takes place on the first Monday in May, is intended to fund the fashion department of the Met (The Costume Institute) and coincides with its big annual exhibition. It was unveiled Monday morning by US First Lady Jill Biden, who saw it as a "celebration of the designers and fashion that shaped America's true identity."

The American "fashion anthology" is a retrospective of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries with a hundred pieces of clothing reinterpreted by designers such as Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese, and Tom Ford.

The gala took place as journalists and editors from Vogue and other Condé Nast publications (GQ, Vanity Fair, Glamor, etc.) launched a movement to create a union, which they recalled on the social networks with a cover pastiche of Vogue: "Met Gala 2022 the longest night of the workers".

Created in 1948, the Met Gala was long reserved for New York's very high society, but Anna Wintour, who took it over in 1995, turned it into a "people" event, adapted to the era of social networks.

This year, the title of honorary co-president was given to Instagram owner Adam Mosseri, along with Anna Wintour and stylist Tom Ford.
