The MET Gala 2022 was held on the 2nd of May this year and was yet another chance for distinct fashion statements by some of the best stars and celebrities the entertainment and art industries have to offer. The stars came out in some of their best and most chic outfits and fashion designers wowed everyone with their innovative and sometimes outlandish looks. Here are 25 of the best looks from the MET Gala 2022.
1. Kylie Jenner
Arguably the best look for the MET Gala 2022, Kylie Jenner came out in a beautiful Off-White wedding gown and added some sauce with her cap that she wore backward. The look caught our eye due to the beautiful flowery train of her gown; it felt like an endless train of beautiful white roses and we fell in love with it.
2. Anok Yai
Anok Yai was another favorite for us. Her custom Michael Kors gown caught our eye for being so simple yet endlessly elegant. We couldn’t get over the pink and how glittery it was. Absolutely loved it.
3. Cardi B
Bardi didn’t disappoint either and she rocked a gold embellished Atelier Versace dress that we could not get over. This dress shouts money and if you know Cardi B, she loves the bag. Total masterpiece.
4. Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid’s Versace corset-and-pants combo and dress were an absolute heart-warm. Her corset stole our hearts for being so sexy and sophisticated and yet, ultra-modern. We also loved how cozy the dress looked and just wanted to give her a hug. She knocked this one out of the park and my goodness, isn’t that dress so puffy?
5. Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian didn’t disappoint either in the MET Gala 2022 and rocked a classic look from Jean Louis. What we loved about this look is that it paid homage to Marilyn Monroe’s look when she famously wished the president a happy birthday. And yes, Kim did it justice and we also loved the hair!
6. Paloma Elsesser
Arguably the most sensual outfit for the MET Gala 2022, Paloma Elsesser came out in a beautiful dress designed by Coach. What we loved about this dress was how sexy it was while still very elegant. Her hair was also absolutely gorgeous and we loved the sexy neat trim.. and do you see her shoes? Gorgeous.
7. Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj came out in this sexy Burberry dress and pants outfit that we loved so much for its dark color and how beautifully she incorporated a veil and cap into her look. Nicki was looking sexy as ever but also a little dark and mysterious. We loved that.
Gunna did a number on us this year with a beautiful suit designed by Thom Browne. Perhaps the most eye-catching thing was his purse, named Pablo the Pup, which gave his look that much more meaning and style. The purse wore its own little tux and already has its Instagram account and we cannot move on without mentioning the beautiful thorn-like shoulder and bottom-of-the-coat trim he wore. Talk of drip!
9. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Perhaps the best-dressed couple in the MET Gala 2022, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds came out in a beautiful gown and suit combination. Blake wore Atelier Versace and what we loved so much about her gown was its liveliness and the beautiful embellishment on the front. Reynolds was looking dapper himself, talk of a Green Lantern fashion power couple!
10. Vanessa Hudgens
In a wildly sexy look, Vanessa Hudgens turned necks at the MET Gala 2022 with this wildly sexy outfit from Moschino. We didn’t predict that miss Hudgens would be this outgoing but we loved her look. Her dress was so sexy, so elegant, and mysterious that we’d need a separate article to discuss it. All in all, we loved the look. Iconic!
11. Amber Valletta
Amber Valletta was the star in the MET Gala wearing a beautiful gold dress by Azzaro. Her look gave a sense of power and rarity with its beautiful star-like design and the cathartic drip down, not forgetting her exquisite necklace and outstanding shoes.
Future’s look for the MET Gala 2022 has a lot going on but what we loved most was the tuxedo blazer and shorts combo. Future looked surprisingly chic and avant-garde for a rapper with a daring crystal-embellished mask and interlocked chain necklace. What was most eye-catching, however, were his tattoos and how beautifully the lapel of the coat came together in a broken-lightning kind of chic.
13. The Kardashians
As a family, the Kardashians killed it in the MET Gala. We loved Kylie’s look the most, followed by Kendall’s, then Khloe’s, and lastly Kourtney’s. They all looked very beautiful and it was interesting to see what each of them translated as their best style and look to grace the MET Gala 2022 red carpet.
14. Avani Gregg
Perhaps the most comfortable-looking dress of the night, Avani Gregg came out in a beautiful Bach Mai dress that we loved so much for its utter sophistication while retaining utmost simplicity. The dress came to life in its beautiful colors and resembled one beautiful and unending rose and we just can’t take our eyes off the look. We also loved her beautiful red gloves. Totally knocked it out of the park with this one.
15. Iris Law
A stunner, Iris Law came out in a beautiful feather-embellished Moschino dress. This dress has so much going on and what we loved most about it was its feather-like pattern and how the feather came together to form this integral structure. Even more, how the dress transitioned beautifully from the feathers downwards, to a simple yellow and blue dress. Metaphorically speaking, this look talked of structure, togetherness, cooperation, and most importantly, nature and the natural way of being.
16. Sebastian Stan
Certainly one of the most dressed male stars of the evening, Sebastian Stan wore Valentino and what is one of the most beautiful pink male outfits we have ever seen. His sneakers were on point and the way the coat is worn over another shirt-coat was simply outstanding. We absolutely love this look and we are sure it will define Pop Culture in the years to come.
17. Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner went all in this year and wore Prada! Her dress featured a see-through top with a beautiful black train that was very dark but still elegant. Of all the attendees, her dress was the best translation of the ‘gilded glamour’ theme of the night.
18. Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Junior graced the red carpet with what we thought was the most comfortable look for the males. His outfit, which he sourced from Cactus Plant Flea Market was outstandingly simple yet very stylish. We loved its texture and simplicity plus the beautiful and sophisticated black shoes. We also loved his chains a lot!
19. Billie Eilish
Another adherence to the theme came from Billie Eilish who rocked a Gucci upcycled dress featuring a corset. What we loved most is her shot at trying to go back to the gilded age while retaining her timeless attitude and style. We love that the dress was upcycled and that the look was overall climate-conscious. It also kind of brought the gilded age to the 21st Century while still recognizing current issues such as the global climate crisis.
20. Naomi Campbell
Naomi Campbell brought out a beautiful yet simple dress from Burberry. She gorgeously embellished it with facial jewelry and a beautiful diamond necklace. The necklace caught our eye and we were just taken aback by how well put-together the overall look was.
21. Dakota Johnson
Dakota Johnson graced the MET Gala 2022 red carpet in a Gucci outfit that we loved for its sophistication. The outfit is draped with flowing fabric while still retaining a transparent look. We loved the heels also and her earrings. She looked so beautiful yet composed and that’s what stood out for us.
22. Precious Lee
Model Precious Lee came out in what was yet another very sexy look. Her dress featured a beautiful black corset and transparent underneath, finished off with beautiful gold ornaments. What we loved so much about this look is how miss Lee brought it out beautifully with the headdress and necklace. The outfit speaks of so many themes such as religion, choice of what to wear, prosperity, and being comfortable in your own skin.
23. Nicola Peltz & Brooklyn Beckham
Another very beautifully dressed couple was Nicola Peltz and Brooklyn Beckham. The love birds came out in what was a beautiful his-and-hers combo designed by Valentino. Brookly wore a beautiful light pink creamy suit while Nicola rocked a beautiful pink dress. What we loved about the look is how both outfits came together so flawlessly. Even more, the unique neckline in Nicola’s dress and its train that started from her arms like wings on an angel. Absolutely gorgeous!
Lizzo brought the heat in this year’s MET Gala with a Thom Browne outfit that was so rich in patterns and grandeur. Lizzo even complimented the look by playing a golden flute which kind of brought a new light to her personality. She looked like an accomplished opera singer with how the beautiful dress incorporated golden flowers and embroidery and also how its train broke into three. Overall a gorgeous look and we also loved Lizzo’s hair!
25. Alicia Keys
To end things off, Alicia Keys’ Ralph Lauren dress that she embellished with jewelry from Tiffany & Co., was breathtaking. What caught our eye the most was the embroidery that showed city buildings and skyscrapers. Also, we absolutely loved how the outfit has a kind of Batman/Catwoman feel with the train coming down from her neck and also Alicia’s beautiful earrings. This look was exquisite and Alicia’s beautiful smile went all the way to tickle our fashion sense. Hope you enjoyed the MET Gala this year as much as we did. Be sure to stay tuned for more Fashion.
