The Met Gala 2022 is the second event celebrating the Costume Institute’s tw0-part exhibition. Part one, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” opened in the Anna Wintour Costume Center on September 18, 2021, and “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” opens on May 5, 2022. However, the theme for this gala held on May 2, 2022, veered to a more glamorous feeling: White tie, inspired by the style and culture of the Gilded Age in New York. The guests were meant to put a modern spin on the opulence and often excessiveness of the jewels and fashion of that time period. The stars who were in attendance did not disappoint during the event that is also referred to as “fashion’s biggest night out.”
