Hollywood's most popular fashion event is just a few hours away and it is all set to host some of the most fabulous get-togethers, heavy on fashion and beauty. In the West, it’s considered fashion’s greatest evening with the biggest personalities in attendance.
The star-studded event is scheduled in New York on the first Monday in May and celebrities from around the world walk the red carpet, ascending the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum, displaying their couture with much panache and status symbols.
DATE, TIME AND THEME
Met Gala 2022 is all set to take place in the United States on Monday, May 2, 2022. Interestingly, Indian fans can watch the event live in the early hours of Tuesday, May 3rd. Reportedly, guests have been notified that this year’s Met Gala theme is ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion.’
As is customary, the sartorial motif is inspired by the exhibit that the gala launches. The event will honour the Met’s upcoming exhibition of the same name, which will be displayed in 13 of the museum’s American period rooms.
The show will debut on May 7 and will run until September 5, 2022. This year’s Met Gala red carpet dress code is all about golden opulence.
ANCHORS AND GUEST LIST
This year’s fashion's biggest night is officially being hosted by Hollywood’s most loved pair Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, actress Regina King, and actor and writer Lin-Manuel Miranda.
The event’s honorary chairs will be Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri, and Anna Wintour, editor of Vogue.
Speaking of the guestlist, Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone is also rumoured to be attending the Met Gala 2022 in a Louis Vuitton outfit. The claim was made by Diet Sabya. The guest list for Met Gala 2022 is a closely guarded secret.
However, it is being speculated that Zendaya has other plans. While Rihanna might skip it because she’s about to give birth, but no confirmation from her side.
RULES TO FOLLOW
According to an Independent article, the use of phones for photography and social media was restricted by the organisers, thus there may not be a single selfie from the Met Gala on Twitter or Instagram. This prohibition has been in effect since 2015.
The event also has an age restriction, with no one under the age of 18 being able to attend. This came to light around the time of the 2018 event when dancer-model Maddie Ziegler informed The Hollywood Reporter that she was too young to attend.
After the ceremony, the guests were offered cocktails and dinner, however, according to The New York Post in 2016, the various food items were not on the menu. The onion and garlic were spared to avoid the bad breath, and bruschetta was discouraged to avoid guests from dropping food on their clothes.
WHERE TO WATCH MET GALA 2022 LIVE FROM INDIA
The Met Gala 2022 live stream is the greatest way to watch the event develop in real-time. The ceremony will take place in the US on Monday, May 2nd, which means that people in India will be able to watch it live on Tuesday, May 3rd, in the early hours of the morning.
