One of the looks most talked about from the Met Gala 2022 was Blake Lively. The host of the ceremony honored New York with a Versace outfit inspired by the Statue of Liberty.
she arrived at red carpet wearing a rose gold dress, with a side bow and a bronze train. On the stairs of the place, the outfit turned. With the help of three assistants, the noose was removed, giving life to a greenish tail.
The same mood, to celebrate the city, Alicia Keys wore a shiny black look. With about 30 thousand crystals, the cape used by the owner of the voice of Empire State of Mind formed the silhouette of New York.
By choosing a dress created by designer Christopher John Rogers, Sarah Jessica Parker paid tribute to Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley, the first black woman to develop robes for the White House. She was a confidant of First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln.
The American Golden Age, which ran from the 1870s to about 1900, set the tone for the visuals. As an ode to 19th century New York glamor, shimmering hues and lush textures appeared, ensuring the evening’s opulence. As expected, among the main references was also the Golden Age of Hollywood, in the 20th century.
The singer Normani wore a voluminous skirt, with a modern adaptation of the low waist. THE look black, by Christian Siriano, was even enhanced with short puffed sleeves and a hat. The Brazilian Anitta opted for a purple dress, by Moschino, with pearls.
In gold, Amber Valletta did not go unnoticed dressed as Azzaro, complete with drapes. Who also drew attention was actress Jessica Chastain, from Gucci. The reddish combination was enhanced with a sequined turban and jewel on top.
With a composition by Prada, Kendall Jenner chose a maximalist skirt, with a huge train, and cropped. Kaia Gerber, from Louis Vuitton, bet on metallics and fringes. Hailey Bieber, from Saint Laurent, complemented the outfit satin with a feather stole.
Vintage also made a big splash on the red carpet at the 2022 Met Gala. Kim Kardashian made a splash with the original dress that Marilyn Monroe wore on President John F. Kennedy’s birthday in 1962. It’s one of the most iconic looks of the story.
Model Emily Ratajkowski chose a dress created by Gianni Versace for the 1992 summer season. Super colorful, the look includes a top with stones and a wide silk skirt.
In retro style, Billie Eilish chose a look by Gucci, with long lace sleeves and corset fair. The inspiration was the painting by Madame Poirson, by John Singer Sargent, from 1885.
