Met Gala 2022: Best fashion from the red carpet
See all the best looks as the stars arrived at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday evening.
Stars across industries including TV, film, politics and sport did not disappoint, bringing exaggerated silhouettes, elegant accessories and moments of drama to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday evening.
At a press event before the gala, First Lady Jill Biden used her opening remarks to emphasize American design’s “rich and deep” history.
“It is a story of innovation and ingenuity, of rebellion and renewal,” she said. “It has often been written by those in the shadows, not recognized for their influence and art, but here at the Met their stories are told.”
“The events embraced by industry insiders and the masses alike allow for peak creativity,” she said via email.
