Red Carpet Recap: Met Gala 2022

Published 05/06/2022

Held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, A-list celebrities descended upon the red carpet in celebration of the museum’s new exhibition, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” which will serve as an exploration of American fashion. The official co-chairs this year included Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Regina King, and Lin-Manuel Miranda

 

Could we expect anything less than perfection from Gossip Girl alum Blake Lively? Created by Versace this was a showstopper! Inspired by the Empire State Building, the train of the dress included a celestial map seen on the ceiling of Grand Central Station and the crown was an ode to the Statue of Liberty - she nailed it!  

    

Fashionable looking gentlemen! First up was Jacob Elordi the Euphoria star from down under looking extremely dapper for the evening. Followed by Leslie Odom Jr who was very fashion forward, not sure of the headpiece. Everyone missed the Duke of Hastings on the new season of Bridgerton but how could anyone forget how handsome Regé-Jean Page is. Giving major Disney prince vibes was Shawn Mendes. 

 

Former Disney kid Cole Sprouse giving off some Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century he could be the band Proto Zoa. A Barbie dream hunk looking extremely comfortable was Sebastian Stan.

   

Date night for these couples at the Met Gala. Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner was not a fan of Sophie’s extreme contour make up, but the expecting parents looked great. Travis Barker & Kourtney Kardashian dare I say Travis looked better. Pete Davidson is that you!? Kim Kardashian getting some heat for her extreme dieting so she could wear Marilyn Monroe’s iconic birthday dress. If you saw her try to climb the stairs it was painful but she, did it thanks to Pete. She also only had the dress on for the carpet (minutes only) then changed to preserve the dress. Co-chairs Lin-Manuel Miranda and Vanessa Nadal looking lovely. 

   

A neon vision was Gwen Stefani, anyone want to know her secret to flawless skin? Next up was a gladiator look from Megan The Stallion. Giving off some bride vibes was Hailey Bieber. Cardi B in a chained-up creation which hugged her curves. 

    

Underwhelming looks but these bold stars. While Gigi Hadid looked extremely comfortable like she was wearing her favorite blanket off the couch I did not love it. Lizzo also falling flat but entertaining the press with her flute. All Kylie Jenner was missing with this look was a Von Dutch hat instead of the one she had and some converse sneakers to be a 2000s girl's dream. 

 

Underrated looks from Ashley Park and Olympian Chloe Kim left me in awe. Ashley looking like a vision perfectly accessories with a stunning necklace and earrings. While Chloe looking like she was off to the ball in a stunning ballgown with red feathers.

There were many other looks from the night, but these were the ones we wanted to highlight. Did any looks give you wedding inspiration?
