The Showstopping Fashion Moments at the 2022 Met Gala

The annual Met Gala, fashion’s most venerated red carpet of the year, has consistently proven its ability to showcase sartorial splendour in all its most unusual and enthralling forms. The theme of this year’s event is “In America: An Anthology of Fashion”, the second part of a series that began with the 2021 edition, with gilded glamour being an overarching aesthetic dominating the red carpet—think corsetry, opulent appliqués, grand silhouettes, and a flair for the historical. From best dressed to bold beauty and perfectly on theme looks—we’ve rounded up our favourite moments of the evening.
