The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, also known as the Met Gala, is considered by many to be the “Super Bowl of celebrity red carpets.”
Fashion’s biggest night is traditionally held on the first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute in New York, with last year’s event being moved to September due to the pandemic.
This year’s dress code was “golden glamour” to match the theme “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” a continuation of last year’s “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.”

Tickets for the glitzy event can cost up to $35,000 each, while prices for a table range from $200,000 to $300,000, with last year’s party bringing in $16.4 million for the Met’s Costume Institute.
Regina King, power couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda hosted this time, succeeding Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka.
Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour once again oversaw the benefit as chairwoman, a position she has held since 1995. Her fellow honorary co-chairs are designer Tom Ford and Instagram executive Adam Mosseri.

Star-studded: The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, also known as the Met Gala, is considered by many to be the “Super Bowl of celebrity red carpets.”
Exclusive Event: This year’s dress code was ‘golden glamour’ to match the theme ‘In America: A Fashion Anthology’, a continuation of last year’s ‘In America: A Fashion Lexicon’.
As usual, the sartorial theme comes from the exhibition launched by the gala: “In America: An Anthology of Fashion”, which is the second of star curator Andrew Bolton’s two-part exhibition exploring the roots of American style. .
Bolton said eight directors created what he called “cinematic vignettes” in the period rooms of the museum’s American wing.
This exhibition will feature lesser-known designers, as well as top directors, including Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese, host King and last year’s Oscar-winning actress Chloe Zhao.
The other four are Ford, the famous fashion designer who is also an acclaimed director, Janicza Bravo (Zola), Julie Dash (Daughters Of The Dust) and Autumn de Wilde (who directed the Jane Austen adaptation of Emma and is also a photographer).
Throwback: Claire starred alongside Kieran in Igby Goes Down in 2002 (both depicted in character)
Similar to the September event, there were 400 guests this year, down from pre-pandemic highs of 500-600 attendees.
The first part of the exhibition will remain on display in the halls of the Anna Wintour Costume Center, as well as the second part, until September 5.
More than half of the pieces in the opening exhibition will be rotated and designer clothes that have not yet been presented will be displayed.
The Met Gala is a huge source of revenue for the museum and provides the Costume Institute with its main source of funding.
