15 Stars Who Nailed The Gilded-Glamour Concept Of The Met Gala

The 2022 Met Gala ended in a flash, leaving behind enough sparkle and glamour to last an entire season.

As always, some participants got the theme right while others didn’t. The “Guilded Glamour” theme was created between 1870 and 1890 and was clearly defined by Vogue before the event. The period “was one of unprecedented prosperity, cultural change, and industrialization, when both skyscrapers and fortunes seemingly arose overnight,” the magazine emphasized.

Each star and designer has a different perspective on the topic, as was seen on the red carpet. Some pushed the boundaries in color, glitter, and style, while others adopted a more simple approach. Some even avoided the theme at all costs and drew greater inspiration from the 1950s.

However, some completely nailed it. They revived Guilded Glamour in its authentic, extravagant, and fabulous form. They were magnificent and luxurious, and they kept the night alive for us. Here are 15 famous people who nailed the Guilded Glamour theme for the Met Gala in 2022.

#1 Billie Eilish nailed it with her Gilded Age-inspired appearance.

Many eyes were on Blake Lively since she participated as the ball’s co-chair. She not only grasped the idea, but she also killed it. She made a difference in a Versace dress with an architectural design, then there was a performance moment when the train turned blue. Additionally, Ryan Reynolds looks excellent standing by her side.

#3 Nicola Coughlan wore a stunning ball gown with crystal and feather decorations.

#5 Taking inspiration from Black women in the 1800s, Cynthia Erivo wore a one-of-a-kind headpiece.

She completed the outfit with a pair of black gloves and a black feathered fan that seemed to be a reference to the character played by Michelle Pfeiffer in the 1993 film “The Age of Innocence,” which was based on the Gilded Age classic by Edith Wharton.

#7 With a black Thom Browne corset gown and an extravagant brocade coat, Lizzo showed that she got the assignment.

#8 Megan Thee Stallion interpreted the gilded-glamour theme in her way by choosing a bold gold dress with shoulder pads that matched the outfit’s feather design.

#12 Sarah Jessica Parker chose a black, white, and grey striped ball gown that was modelled after Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley, a civil rights activist and seamstress.

According to Zanna Roberts Rassi of E!, Parker’s appearance was influenced by Keckley and the fact that she was able to buy her freedom in 1855 with the money she earned as a seamstress.

#13 Shawn Mendes chose a military-inspired outfit by Tommy Hilfiger.
