What is the Met Gala?
The annual Met Gala is a celebration of fashion that honors The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute and the opening of its spring exhibition.
The biggest names in Hollywood and fashion are invited, all tasked with working with today’s top designers to build an ensemble to match the chosen theme.
The Met Gala also serves as a fundraiser for the MET and is overseen by the legendary Anna Wintour, Managing Editor of Vogue.
She decides rain or shine in the fashion industry.
The 2020 edition had to be canceled due to the covid health crisis and the 0221 edition had to be moved to September. But this year, everything is going as planned.
Last year’s hosts were none other than Billie Eilish, Timothée Chalamet and tennis player Naomi Osaka and poet Amanda Gorman.
This year, the hosts are none other than the couple of comedians Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds alongside actors Regina King, and Lin-Manuel Miranda supported by Tom Ford, the president of the CFDA, the popess of Vogue Anna Wintour and the boss of ‘Instagram Adam Mosseri.
The red carpet broadcast, on the other hand, will be presented by actress Vanessa Hudgens and La La Anthony who will host the live broadcast of the Met Gala 2022.
They will be joined by Vogue editor Hamish Bowles.
You can expect interviews, interactions and fun times from the trio, just like it happened last year with Keke Palmer and Ilana Glazer.
The start of the red carpet opening will be at 6 p.m. and guests will be able to arrive late into the night, as Barbadian singer Rihanna did the year before.
What will be the theme in 2022?
Each year, a theme is given.
The 2020 Met Gala, which did not take place, was themed About time: Fashion and duration.
In 2019, it was about camp aesthetics and the 2018 edition was called Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
One year was an evening without phones and without selfies.
Something that some guests did not respect by taking a group selfie in the toilets of the Met. Photo that went around the internet.
A few years ago, it was a magical theme that had been imposed.
This year the theme is “Gilded Glamour”.
We must therefore expect more iconic outfits than each other.
Each year, each fashion designer goes above and beyond to make their stars make a splash at the Met Gala and their outfits stand out.
Who will be the guests?
The particularity of this ceremony is that the guest list is kept top secret until the appearance of the guests on the red carpet.
But this year, rumors suggest that the French influencer and youtuber was invited to the Met gala.
The actress and singer Selena Gomez who was not there last year ceremony should make an appearance on May 5, 2022 at the Met Museum.
Of course, you can imagine that iconic stars will be invited to the event such as Kim, Kylie and Kendall from the Kardashian clan or Billie Eilish or Justin Bieber.
No matter who’s invited, we can’t wait to see this year’s iconic outfits during what promises to be legendary.
Who will preside over the Met Gala 2022?
The ceremony will be chaired by Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds alongside actors Regina King, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, supported by Tom Ford, the president of the CFDA, the popess of Vogue Anna Wintour and the boss of Instagram Adam Mosseri.
