The theme was outdated
This is a big old no-no for us. We know the dress is reminiscent of grand ballroom style and the hustle and bustle of the golden age, but the white fabric doesn’t look rich enough, and the flowers are from a very “craft store.” The design at the top is absolutely terrible.
One user tweeted: “Am I the only one who thinks this year’s #MetGala theme is out of reach? Inequality is at its highest level since the golden age, the pandemic and economic collapse devastated us, and inflation is out of control Already…but cool, let’s wear #GildedAge-inspired dresses and laugh at inequality…This year’s theme packs a punch on ordinary Americans.”
The celebrity guests were all white
While certain A-listers exuded luxury in gilded glamour, white tie-themed dresses with intricate embroidery, corsets and fur-lined coats, others were underwhelming at the 2022 Met Gala. We can only speculate that some of the women’s first calls this morning were to their stylists, ready to fire them on the spot.
As always, the star-studded event will be hosted by Anna Wintour alongside a host of Hollywood’s top style icons. Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Lin-Manuel Miranda will serve as co-chairs for 2022. Are you ready for fashion’s biggest night yet? Here’s everything you need to know about the 2022 Met Gala.
Metro manila residents were not invited
The Kardashian sisters disappeared without even looking at the Met rug. Kourtney and her fiancé/husband (I don’t know exactly what their current marital status is) walked the carpet, and Travis Barker wore what I can only describe as a dress made of a combination of different fabrics. That’s all. I can only say so much.
The annual Met Gala guest list is kept under wraps until stars hit the red carpet, so there’s no telling who will be in attendance. However, depending on how the past few years have gone, there could be some Kardashians, a few high profile political figures, pop’s brightest stars and *prayer* Rihanna in attendance – pregnancy is allowed, of course .
The venue was too small
In many ways, this might have been considered too easy for the Met Gala, more appropriate for a movie premiere or red carpet. That might be true for mortals, but the “Pynk” singer and youngest writer knows exactly how to add maximum drama to looks, making everything they wear feel otherworldly and stunningly original. Bottom line: She looks great like she belongs where she is. This always applies to her.
We hate to say it, but we worry that it won’t work for us. The textiles are heavy, and the somewhat drab green and black combo doesn’t help or add the extravagance needed for night time. We’re absolutely right about tiaras and opera gloves. “Protect Trans Kids” was written on her minaudière, which naturally made her the best accessory of the night. We just don’t like the dress.
The dress code was too strict in Met Gala 2022
In short, according to Vogue, white tie is the most formal dress code. Similar to the Golden Age, the publication notes that the white tie dress code emerged in the mid-19th century and was very specific: either a black tuxedo and black trousers, or a white shirt, waistcoat, bow tie and white gloves or a full-length evening dress, Optionally add long gloves as accents.
This look is all about trying to do too much, and in a way, that’s what makes it so important. We struggled with the idea of skirts and corsets, but the latter was very interesting and the former was straight out of 1890. The only part we really didn’t like was the shoe selection. These sandals take the focus away from a look that already fits well enough.
