All you need to know about met gala 2022
However, unlike the past two years, Met Gala 2022 will take place according to its annual custom. It is the first Monday in May. And this year, it’s May 2.
Following the 2021 Met Gala, this year’s theme continues to revolve around American culture , called In America : An Anthology of Fashion . The Met Gala 2022 draws on the tenets of American style and continues to honor the unsung heroes of American design.
While the guests prepare their party outfits, here’s what you need to know ahead of this year’s Met Gala.
The Met Gala 2022 and 2021 are a couple, one after another to celebrate American culture.
The first part takes place in 2021 with the theme In America: A Lexicon of Fashion (rough translation: The American Fashion Vocabulary), the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the Costume Institute (Costume Institute) and building the current vocabulary. era of American fashion. The Met Gala 2021 has honored American designers and the American fashion industry through the ages.
Remember just 8 months ago, we saw Billie Eilish look exactly like Marilyn Monroe in an Oscar de la Renta evening gown. Or Kendall Jenner in the design from Givenchy, inspired by the shape of the legendary Audrey Hepburn in the movie My Fair Lady (1984).
In 2022, the Met Gala focuses on the evolution of American fashion through the industry’s rich history, while also reflecting the cultural and racial diversity in a multiracial America. According to the information revealed, the question “Who is considered an American designer?” Prabal Gurung Spring Summer 2020 fashion show will also be mentioned in this year’s ceremony.
Andrew Bolton, Executive Director at the Museum’s Costume Institute shared on the theme ahead of the gala:
“This year’s story not only reflects the evolution of American fashion, but also gives us a glimpse into the work of tailors, dressmakers and personal designers.
What’s interesting to me is that you get to see the fashion works of names that are all too familiar to fashion students, such as Charles James, Halston, and Oscar de la Renta, and also names that have forgotten or excluded from the footnotes of fashion history.
So one of the main purposes of the exhibition is to highlight the talents and contributions of these individuals, and many of them are women.”
This year, the quartet hosts the show: Four Emmy Award-winning Actress Regina King; actor couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds; and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote many of the hit songs We Don’t Talk About Bruno in the movie Encanto .
In addition, fashion queen Anna Wintour, designer Tom Ford and Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, will be the three honorary co-chairs for the ceremony.
Who are the invited guests?
As usual, the Met Gala guest list is kept private. However, although the official list has not been announced, but the big names in the fashion industry are often present, often with Rihanna, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Madonna, and the Kardashian sisters. And it’s also not surprising that the event will feature designers with their muse, such as Marc Jacobs and Kate Moss, or Nicolas Ghesquière and Emma Stone.
What can we expect from the costumes?
With this year’s theme, it is certain that we can expect costumes from famous American designers such as Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui and Prabal Gurung. Besides, young designers participating in New York Fashion Week such as Pyer Moss, Christopher John Rogers and Vaquera will also contribute.
However, since the Met Gala doesn’t have a dress code and leaves guests free to design costumes to match the theme, we’ll have to wait until May to see the artists’ creativity. design. Given what we saw in season one, perhaps themes related to Hollywood and the mighty film industry will continue to be promoted by the stars.
