2022 Met Gala: Welcome to the Gilded Age of America

May is here and the second part of last year's theme for the Met Gala continues! As we know, the theme for the past two years have been centered around fashion in America. The two-part exhibition started in 2021 with In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, focusing on the melting pot of cultures in America. For 2022, the exhibition featured at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was titled In America: An Anthology of Fashion with a focus on historical fashion in cleverly designed rooms. This fashion is meant to feature what they call the "unsung heroes" and backbone of America.

The dress code of the night focused on the Gilded Age of America, which was the time period between the 1800s and early 1900s, right after the Civil War. We were excited to see how celebrities and designers reimagined the fashion of this time period which included structured dresses, waist cinching corsets, and feathers everywhere.

This year’s panel of honorary chairs included Anna Wintour, Tom Ford, and Adam Mosseri again while the co-chairs hosting included power couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, Regina King, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. With a love for the Met Gala, all of us at Couture USA tuned into the red carpet once again to share with you which red carpet looks we thought fit the theme or were our favorites.
