Met Gala 2022

Met Gala 2022

-

The 2022 Met Gala red carpet was full of gilded glamour as guests attended fashion’s most-anticipated event of the year.

From Blake Lively to Kim Kardashian, the best-dressed stars of the Met Gala stunned in vintage dresses and multiple outfit changes.

The theme of the evening’s Met Gala was “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” the second part of the Costume Institute’s exhibition, which opened on 18 September. The first part of the exhibition was reflected in last year’s Met Gala theme, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” which was in celebration of all things American Fashion.

Last year, the Met Gala took place on 13 September and the year before, it was cancelled due to the pandemic. Usually, around 600 celebrities are invited to mark the glitzy event in their social calendars, but this year and last, the numbers are closer to 400.

As per tradition, the guest list for this year’s event was carefully presided over by Vogue’sAnna Wintour, who has run the gala since 1995. It was announced earlier this year that the 2022 hosts would include Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who served as the night’s official co-chairs.

Fans can’t get enough of Phoebe Dynevor’s makeup look at Vogue’s pre-Met party

Vogue’s Pre Met Party took place on Sunday night, and took on a much funkier theme compared to its more glamorous sister event – inspired by American Hustle and 1970s fashion, the party took place in New York’s iconic Katz’s Deli.

It was attended by models and fashion designers galore, include Shalom Harlow, Paloma Elsesser, Precious Lee, Christopher Kayne, Batsheva Hay, Christopher John Rogers and more.

But one guest’s makeup look has captured the Internet. Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor’s 70’s classic look, teamed with an embellished Louis Vuitton bare-back halter dress, has fans swooning.

The look, created by makeup artist and niece of Charlotte Tilbury, Sofia Tilbury, made use of barely-there shimmer to highlight Dynevor’s high cheekbones and a feline flick at the edges of her eyes accentuated her gaze.

But whether or not Dynevor will be at the Met Gala tonight remains to be seen.

All the Kardashians have reportedly been invited to the 2022 Met Gala

Met Gala watchers might see all the Kardashia-Jenner sisters and mother Kris Jenner at the major fashion event tonight.

According to Page Six, Vogue editor Anna Wintour has invited all the Kardashians, except for one, to the 2022 Met Gala for the first time.

This includes Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Pete Davidson, Kourtney Kardashian and fiance Travis Barker, Khloe Kardashian, Kris and Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

However, Rob Kardashian is unlikely to attend, as is Kylie’s partner Travis Scott, who she shares two children with. The publication also reports a source as saying that Kim’s ex-husband Kanye West is “not expected to attend” this year.

Kim attended the gala last year dressed in an all-black Balenciaga outfit, complete with a mask that covered her face and head.

Kendall was also present at the event last year and donned a sheer bejewelled gown by Givenchy designer Matthew Williams. The dress was inspired by gown Audrey Hepburn wore in 1964, Jenner said, adding: “I love Audrey, so we really wanted to take a special moment of hers and make it our own.”

The family’s attendance would mark the first time Khloe and Kourtney have attended the prestigious fashion event. Watch this space.
