Met Gala 2022: Best fashion from the red carpet
See all the best looks as the stars arrived at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday evening.
At the exhibition’s press event before the gala, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden gave opening remarks at the Met, emphasizing American design’s “rich and deep” history.
“It is a story of innovation and ingenuity, of rebellion and renewal,” she said. “It has often been written by those in the shadows, not recognized for their influence and art, but here at the Met their stories are told. Their voices are raised and their work can shine.”
“I always look forward to seeing how designers interpret the theme with their own creativity, identity and twist, and I’m sure this year will be no exception,” Hilfiger said via email. “The Met Gala is all about having an open mind and thinking outside the box.”
“The events embraced by industry insiders and the masses alike allow for peak creativity,” she said via email, adding: “I hope guests bring out their most decadent yet playful looks.”
This story and photos will be updated through the night. Scroll down to see some of the event’s best fashion.
