The Met Gala is back to the first Monday in May again.
The 2022 Met Gala will take place at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 2. The star-studded event will celebrate part two of the Costume Institute’s exhibition, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.” The first part of the exhibition, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” opened in September 2021 after the Met Gala was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The second part of the exhibition will open at the Met on May 7 and will remain on display until September 5.
Although viewers won’t be able to see what happens during the actual Met Gala, you can still watch the red carpet from home to see what your favorite celebrities are wearing.
You can watch the red carpet on E! starting at 6 pm ET
Starting at 6 pm ET, E! will have “Queer Eye’s” Karamo Brown, celebrity stylist Brad Goreski, and style correspondent Zanna Roberts Rassi reporting on what all the celebrities are wearing. TV host Naz Perez will also be interviewing those famous faces on the Met staircase until 9 pm ET.

Vogue’s livestream will be available to view on its website as well as on the brand’s Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter pages.
The dress code for this year’s event is ‘gilded glamor’
As Insider’s Samantha Grindell reported, the dress code is “gilded glamor, white tie,” which means attendees will be expected to wear looks that pay homage to the Gilded Age of New York (from 1870 to 1890). According to Vogue, technological advancements made it easier to buy clothes during this time, so the upper class had a more opulent approach to fashion.
Women, in particular, wore extravagant looks that included brightly-colored outfits that were often paired with dramatic accessories. As Vogue reported, for formal events during the Gilded Age, women were required to wear tulle gowns that exposed their cleavage, fur-lined cloaks, and white gloves, while men had to wear top hats.
Part two of the gala also has a whole new set of celebrity co-chairs
The night’s official co-chairs will include Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Designer Tom Ford, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, and Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, will serve as honorary chairs.
According to Footwear News, the guest list is expected to have some high-profile names, including Kim Kardashian and Justin and Hailey Bieber. The guest count for this year’s gala should be around 600 attendees, according to Vogue.
