The history of the fashion’s most-coveted night dates back to 1948 when Eleanor Lambert organized an annual fundraiser called The Party Of The Year. The Met Gala evolved over the years and became a benchmark in fashion when Anna Wintour, the Editor-In-Chief of Vogue, took over as the Chair in 1995. She designated the first Monday of May as the date of the gala and introduced a variety of themes every year that made celebrities bring their best fashion foot forward.
The 2022 Met Gala was another star-studded night with the theme In America: An Anthology of Fashion: Gilded Glamor which takes inspiration from New York during its gilded age and the grandiosity of the past decades. This year, Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Regina King co-chaired. Labeled as the Oscar of the fashion world, let’s take a look at the best-dressed celebrities at the 2022 Met Gala.
10 Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian has displayed a dramatic look on the red carpet in the past, and she made another jaw-dropping entrance this year. The reality star was dressed in a Jean-Louis-designed translucent embellished gown that Marilyn Monroe once wore in 1962 to serenade John F. Kennedy on his 45th Birthday. The dress was sold at Julien’s Auctions in 2016 for $4.8 million and remained the most expensive dress to date.
9 Sebastian Stan
An eye-popping choice by the Marvel star, Sebastian Stan made a bold statement at the 2022 Met Gala dressed in a hot-pink ensemble. He was dressed head-to-toe in custom Valentino from the overcoat, shirt, and trousers to the sunglasses, sneakers, and socks. While the outfit was slightly off-theme, the outrageously great fit and color schemes still add it to the best-dressed list.
8 Dakota Johnson
Dakota Johnson has never had a dull red carpet moment, and she brought a new wave of gilded glamor to the gala, thanks to her fashion squad that includes stylist Kate Young and hairstylist Mark Townsend. The actress wore a custom Gucci black lace jumpsuit with a silver fringe in every direction. She added another layer to the outfit with a floor-length velvet fuchsia belted robe with dramatic sleeves.
7 Cardi B
Cardi B walked the red carpet alongside the creator of her Atelier outfit, Donatella Versace. A head-to-toe gold chain look, the outfit took more than 1,300 hours to be handmade by a group of 20 people. Made from a combination of gold chains that stretched for one mile, Cardi B was every inch graceful as she carried the heavy dress.
6 Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker once revealed that it takes around ten months to work with designers and create her perfect Met Gala ensemble. A Met Gala-veteran, her outfit was a homage to Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley, White House’s first black female fashion designer. Parker collaborated with Christopher John Rogers and used black and white plaids to complete the ballgown look.
Lizzo won the category of the Best Accessory at the 2022 Met Gala when she arrived with a gold flute in her hands. Thom Browne created her outfit, and it featured a black two-piece column gown and a black and gold-embroidered coat with a regal train. She had matched the look with gold jewelry, black platform heels, and the infamous flute.
4 Blake Lively
One of the fashion event co-chairs, Blake Lively, has always made heads turn at the Met Gala. For the Gilded Glamor theme, she worked with Atelier Versace to create an outfit that was a tribute to New York City. She stepped onto the museum steps in a rose gold gown with a dramatic bow inspired by the Empire State Building’s architecture. She surprised everyone as the bow untied to reveal a blue train that depicted the constellation at the Grand Central Station. She had accessorized her look with a seven-tier crown that symbolized the seven rays of the Statue of Liberty.
3 Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner did not play it safe at the Met Gala as she came with an extravagant look that made heads turn. Her custom Prada black tulle top was paired with a voluminous match silk-satin skirt with hand-pleated details. The model had bleached her brows and dyed her hair in an auburn shade.
2 Billie Eilish
Wearing custom Gucci, Billie Eilish brought true Hollywood glamor to the red carpet at the 2022 Met Gala. Her stylish outfit was made from recycled fabric and featured a green and light golden corset with an oversized flower. Her ivory-gathered satin gown had floral arrangements in the back with a train. She had finished the look with ornate necklaces and a black choker.
1 Yahya Abdul-Mateen II
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II channeled royalty as he worked with his stylist Jan-Michael Quammie and designer Thom Browne to create a look fit for a king. His custom three-piece suit had a three-play floor-length coat with gold orchid embroidery, a white tie silk waistcoat, and a bowtie. The outfit was paired with black trousers and the signature wingtip loafers by Browne.
Other notable best-dressed celebs include Kylie Jenner, Jessica Chastain, and Shawn Mendes. Bringing every inch of Gilded Glamour to the red carpet, the 2022 Met Gala was a grand success for its looks and the buzz every celebrity created worldwide for their bold choices.
