Celebs Who Did And Didn’t Follow 2022 Met Gala Theme


Not gonna lie…one of the most excited themes had one of the most underwhelming carpets…

In case you’re like, “What is the gilded age?” Don’t fret. This is how Vogue described the dress code for last night’s festivities:

The 2022 Met Gala will ask its attendees to embody the grandeur—and perhaps the dichotomy—of Gilded Age New York. The period, which stretched from 1870 to 1890 (Mark Twain is credited with coining the term in 1873), was one of unprecedented prosperity, cultural change, and industrialization, when both skyscrapers and fortunes seemingly arose overnight.

So, think more Gone With the Wind and less The Great Gatsby.

Out with the fringe and in with the bustles! 

So, without further ado, here are some of the best and no-so-best looks that fit the Met Gala dress code:

Blake’s gown started off copper and transformed into this blue skirt to mirror the “petina-ing” of the Statue of Liberty. Pretty cool, IMO.

Listen, I know that Amy thinks the Met Gala is a joke / a waste of time, but then, like, don’t go?

I could MAYBE make an excuse for the top, but the simple top and shudders backwards baseball cap, this is TRULY disrespectful to Virgil Abloh’s legacy.

Like, do I love this dress? Yes. Do I think it’s more appropriate for the Emmys and not the Met Gala? Also yes. She looked more “gilded glamour” when she was stealing from the Met Gala versus attending the Met Gala.

SJP needs to teach a masterclass on how to properly dress on theme to the Met Gala. She! Never! Misses!

I understand that this was an homage to the workers of the late 1800s who rich made their money off of, BUT….still. No glamour, no dice.

This was one of the VERY few jewel-toned looks on the carpet, so even though it’s a simpler silhouette, I had to include because it’s still giving opulence.
