Every Breathtaking Red Carpet Look From the 2022 Met Gala

And just like that, the first Monday in May is upon us. While it was only September when celebrities last descended upon the Metropolitan Museum of Art, fashion's most anticipated red carpet is returning to its storied date, and as such, we're teeming with excitement. The theme for the 2022 Met Gala, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, is an ode to the era of gilded glamour, and attendees have been instructed to embrace all things grandeur and opulence.

Therefore, the looks you're about to dive into are filled with the most over-the-top interpretations of 18th-century fashion—think ruffles, corsets, headpieces, and heavy beading—and of course, some noteworthy rule-breakers, too. Scroll down to see all the best looks from the 2022 Met Gala red carpet.
