When it came to golden glamour, Carey Mulligan took home the award. Schiaparelli’s custom design, which consisted of a fairly simple black column dress with the most beautiful embroidery, took over 4,000 hours.

The 2022 Met Gala theme, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, draws on the tenets of American style and celebrates unsung heroes of US design.
However, there were some celebrities that people really wanted to see at the gala, but the stars skipped the event. BTS: Given the fabulous year BTS has had at all the major events, including Grammy Awards and Oscars (despite marking their virtual presence), the ARMY expected to see them at the Met Gala.
At the 2021 Met Gala, held on September 13, two of K-pop’s most popular female idols – BLACKPINK’s Rosé and former 2NE1 member CL – graced the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts’ Costume Institute Art in New York City for the annual fundraising gala, hosted by Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour.
Met Gala 2022: Why Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Zendaya and more celebrities skipped the event. This year’s Met Gala gave way to a host of A-list celebrities who interpreted the “Gilded Glamor and White Tie” dress code in myriad ways under the motto “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.”
Last year’s In America: A Lexicon of Fashion themed celebration was postponed to September following various cancellations in 2020 due to COVID-19. The 2022 Met Gala will resume its normal calendar placement and is scheduled for May 2, 2022
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds will serve as co-chairs of the 2022 Met Gala alongside Academy Award winner Regina King and Broadway superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda. Designer Tom Ford, Instagram boss Adam Mosseri and Vogue editor-in-chief Wintour will serve as honorary hosts at the gala this year.
But it seems like fans of BTS have finally accepted their fate since BTS 2022 didn’t perform at the Met Gala. Instead, ARMYs created their own version of the event as they shared their funniest moments, including BTS members wearing outrageously funny outfits.
The only way to enter the Met Gala for free is to be selected by a designer who has a table and whose work will be featured at the event. If you are selected, this designer will dress you in an outfit that they believe fits the theme – and wearing their design is your ticket.
