The first Monday in May is finally upon us and that can only mean one thing – the Met Gala has arrived!

While it's only been eight months since its last outing due to coronavirus-related delays, this year's ball promises to be bigger and better than ever thanks to the fabulous theme, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, or 'Gilded Glamour and White Tie' – you basically can't get more formal than this!

Co-chaired by Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Regina King and Lin-Manuel Miranda, while Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, Tom Ford, and Instagram’s Adam Mosseri will serve as honorary co-chairs, guests at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art have been asked "to embody the grandeur — and perhaps the dichotomy — of Gilded Age New York".

Fashion at the time of the Gilded Age, a major period of economic growth in American history, featured corsets, long-boned bodices, and hourglass silhouettes, so expect to see elaborate floor-length gowns with evening gloves, and the odd tiara or two, and men in tailcoats, white waistcoats, and white bow ties.

Here are the most glamorous red carpet looks from the 2022 Met Gala…

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian looked incredible wearing Marilyn Monroe's iconic gold gown designed by Jean Louis from a sketch by Bob Mackie. The late icon wore the dress when she infamously sang happy birthday to President John F. Kennedy in 1962, just three months before her tragic death.
