The overview of Met Gala 2022!
The Common Question: What happens at/inside Met Gala?
Typically, this annual fashion celebration takes place on the first Monday of May.
What actually happens inside this event is quite a secret, however, Met Gala is a two-day event, and the dress representation happens on the second day.
Talking a bit more about this, the Met Gala forbids celebrities attending the affair from taking any pictures while inside.
Taking pictures inside Met Gala breaks the secrecy of this night.
It furthermore is concerned that the guests would spend more time on their phones and not be present for the evening.
Every year, the Met Gala event indicates the introduction of the museum’s fashion exhibit, and of course, the major highlight is the fashion parade.
Inside the main event, there are tables arranged for almost 500 guests who are expected to make their presence.
The tables are divided into groups of 15-20 people.
However, you will receive a smaller table if you are a high-profile star.
Similarly, after the tour of the exhibition is done, guests are served cocktails and dinner after that.
Another Frequent Question: What is the theme for this year?
Undoubtedly, there is a theme for this year’s event. This means the celebrities have to choose an outfit representing the very theme.
As a matter of fact, this year’s Gala is, in several ways, a follow-up to last year’s event.
To illustrate, the first part was opened on September 18, 2021, and the theme was entitled “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.”
Similarly, for this year, 2022, the theme is In America: An Anthology of Fashion.
“Gilded Glamour,” a reference to the Gilded Age, is the core subject chosen for this year.
It revolves around the relevance and impact of American fashion.
Can anybody attend or receive an invitation to this prestigious affair?
Surely, not. It is a bit different than other charity events.
At Met Gala, only the selected guests receive a ticket to the event.
Reportedly, the invitation depends on the status of the celebrity.
Do celebrities need to pay for Met Gala?
Now, about making payment to appear at Met Gala, it is again not true.
Well, designers select the celebrities, and the chosen celebs have to represent his/her/their dress.
So, if you are chosen in that outfit which fits the theme of the Gala, wearing that dress is your ticket.
Interesting Facts: In 2014, the individual tickets cost $30,000 for those outside the official guest list.
Who are the Met Gala 2022 hosts?
Likewise, Anna Wintour from Vogue, Adam Mosseri from Instagram, and the respected designer Tom Ford will continue their role as honorary co-chairs.
One Last Question: How much has the Met collected with this fashion event?
Well, the 2021 ball collected over $16.4 million.

For 2021 “American Independence“ was the theme for the ball.
As previously stated, last year, on 18 September 2021, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion was introduced as the theme for the first part of the Gala 2022.
Emerging artists like Timothee Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka, and Amanda Gorman co-chaired last year’s event.
Surprisingly, last year’s event took place five days before, on the 13th of September.
Now, after overcoming the Covid blues, the Met Gala is back, and everyone is looking forward to this year’s event.
According to the sources, the young-sensation Zendaya might not be able to make it to the Gala this year.
Reportedly, Zendaya’s conflicting work schedule won’t let her grace the most prominent fashion event.
Moreover, we are not sure whether or not Gala queen Rihanna wilt attend the event because of her pregnancy.
Whatever the case, there will be a plethora of drama and sass to look forward to.
Let’s brace ourselves to witness the night of fashion buzz.
If you are wondering where to watch the event, the official live stream will begin at 6 PM ET.
