The Met Gala 2022: All the red carpet looks you need to see

It’s the first Monday in May, which means it’s officially time for fashion’s night of nights: The Met Gala.

After the iconic event was cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid pandemic and postponed to September last year, this year sees the star-studded evening return to its traditional date in the calendar.

This year’s theme is In America: An Anthology of Fashion, and will be hosted by co-chairs Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Regina King, and honorary chairs Anna Wintour, Tom Ford, and Adam Mosseri.


The official invitation states the dress code as “Gilded Glamour”, with fans expecting plenty of Bridgerton-style corsets, frills and big skirts to make an appearance.

Here are all the looks from your favourite A-listers as they arrive on the red carpet:
