One of the most anticipated fashion events of the year has returned to New York City on Monday, June 2, 2022. This year’s Met Gala theme was “Gilded Glamour,” which was inspired by the opening of the Costume Institute’s exhibition. According to Vogue, it channels the time period between 18700 to 1890, requesting attendees to “embody the grandeur – and perhaps the dichotomy – of Gilded Age New York”.

Let’s just say some celebrities went all out this year, whilst some did not. Here are this year’s best-dressed celebrities – as well as those who totally missed the mark at the Met Gala

Hit: Cardi B

My favourite look of the evening has to be Cardi B. She made heads turn with this gorgeous gold beaded number designed by Versace. I love the dramatic detailing and beading on this look, which truly made it stand out and feel like a work of art. Cardi B ate and left no crumbs!

Hit: Blake Lively

Blake Lively perfectly embodied the “Gilded Glamour” theme with this drop-dead gorgeous gown. She brought her A-game with her Atelier Versace dress with the gown transforming into a different colour halfway through her red-carpet appearance which truly made for a show-stopping red carpet moment.

Hit: Stormzy

Stormzy shined so nicely in Burberry. The Grime rapper wore an all-white suit featuring a crisp white cape which was designed by Riccardo Tisci and honestly speaking we are not worthy of such greatness.

Miss: Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner opted for a bridal look for the 2022 Met Gala. I must admit, I’m not the biggest fan of this look, and I’m sure you guys can agree with me. While I love the dramatic ruffled skirt, the backward baseball hat veil was very questionable and absolutely ruined the whole look.

Miss: Future

The rapper wore a double-breasted tuxedo, covered with black brogues, black sacks and black satin shirt and a black embellished face mask all custom made by BOSS. I mean… he should’ve stayed home.

Miss: Sebastian Stan

Sebastian may not have embodied the ‘Gilded Glamour’ theme but certainly brought the drama to the Met Gala, dressed in hot pink from head-to-toe, giving the red carpet a much-needed touch of neon colour. But still a no for me.
