Known for celebrities in over-the-top outfits, the Met Gala returned to its traditional date of the first Monday (May 2) in May, just eight months after 2021’s pandemic-delayed event in September.
The event, a fundraiser for New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, has been dubbed the Oscars of the East Coast. This year’s A-list guests were told to dress in “gilded glamour.”
The invitation-only Met Gala marks the opening of the annual fashion exhibition at the museum’s Costume Institute. This year’s exhibit, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” caps a two-part exhibition and focuses on the history of American dress.
