The Met Gala, also called fashion’s biggest night, is almost here. The event will be held tonight in New York (early morning on Tuesday in India) and witness an array of celebrities walking the red carpet in elaborate ensembles. Several Indian celebrities such as Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Isha Ambani have walked the Met Gala red carpet in the past. Of course, they made strong statements in head-turning outfits when they attended the event.
The fashion spectacle is best known for how celebrities interpret the night’s theme with their extravagant sartorial choices. This year, the Met Gala theme is In America: An Anthology of Fashion. Wondering what it means? Well, read on.
The theme has been set in honour of American contributions to fashion. “The stories really reflect the evolution of American style, but they also explore the work of individual tailors, dress-makers, and designers,” Andrew Bolton, head curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, told Vogue.
“What’s exciting for me is that some of the names will be very familiar to students of fashion, like Charles James, Halston, and Oscar de la Renta, but a lot of the other names really have been forgotten, overlooked, or relegated into the footnotes of fashion history. So one of the main intentions of the exhibition is to spotlight the talents and contributions of these individuals, and many of them are women,” he added.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON RED CARPET?
If you are thinking about what does this theme mean for the red carpet? Well, you can expect the celebrities to go back in time and embrace extravagant ensembles with a hint of period drama. There will be a hearty dose of glamour with elements like corsets, frilled hems, billowing gowns and more.
Met Gala 2022 is being hosted by Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Regina King and Lin-Manuel Miranda. As for the guest list, it is not revealed until the event.
We can’t wait to see who wears what at the Met Gala 2022.
