MET GALA 2022: the Oscars of fashion are ready to amaze

Every year we used to hear about the eccentric outfits of the stars attending the MET gala, but what is this event? It is the annual charity gala organized by the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art that, since 1973, has become a real event of success and luxury (just think that tickets to attend have a price ranging from 30000 to 50000 dollars). After a canceled edition and another postponed for a few months (due to the pandemic emergency from Covid-19) the appointment returns as usual on the first Monday in May.

Every year are communicated the themes that will characterize the evening and guests compete to show off the most incredible haute couture look, this year the theme is "In America: An Anthology of Fashion". It was decided to give a sense of continuity with the theme chosen for the 2021 gala "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion", a celebration of American fashion and history.

Guests at the event were provided with more information about how to dress: white tie and golden "charm". In this case, reference is made to the golden age, that period between the American Civil War and the First World War, a period in which the population and the American economy saw significant growth.
The designers, to whom the stars entrust the realization of their outfits, interpret the dress code of each year unpredictably: some in a more literal way and some in a more subtle way. What is sure is that there will be excesses mixed originally with the tradition of those years, back in fashion with his corsets and tiaras thanks to the success of the Netflix TV series "Bridgerton".

We don’t know who this year’s guests are, because the list remains top-secret until the event, but we know that Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Lin-Manuel Miranda have been named co-hosts of the event; while Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri and Anna Wintour will be honorary co-presidents.

What happens at Met Galas is top secret and all guests must adhere to the no phone and no social media rule. It will be possible to follow live on the website of Vogue (partner of the event) only for the red carpet show starting from 00:00 on May 3.
