Gala
2022:
Everything
You
Need
To
Know
About
Its
Theme,
Guests,
Hosts
And
More

According
to
the
report,
the
fine
print
on
Anna
Wintour’s
coveted
invitation
for
the
night
of
fashion
revealed
that
this
year’s
theme
will
celebrate
the
“inclusivity” of
American
fashion.
The
head
curator
of
the
Museum
of
Modern
Art’s
Costume
Institute,
Andrew
Bolton,
told
Vogue
that
the
13-room
exhibition
will
“really
reflect
the
evolution
of
American
style,
but
they
also
explore
the
work
of
individual
tailors,
dress-makers,
and
designers.”

Notably,
the
most
photographed
night
of
the
year,
is
a
fundraising
event
that
earned
more
than
a
whopping
$16.4
million
in
2021
for
the
Met’s
Costume
Institute.
The
exhibition
this
year
will
channel
the
time
period
between
1870
to
1890.
Andrew
added,
it
“will
ask
its
attendees
to
embody
the
grandeur

and
perhaps
the
dichotomy

of
Gilded
Age
New
York.”

Keeping
up
with
the
time
period,
the
White-Tie
affair
has
been
deemed
as
the
“dress
code
required
at
only
the
most
formal

and
historic

of
occasions.” According
to
GQ,
the
dress
code
is
typically
used
for
events
of
extreme
importance
with
guests
of
elite
caliber,
like
royals.
It
comprises
of
White-Tie
for
men
with
stiff
shirts
and
unbuttoned
jackets.

As
for
woman,
White-Tie’s
origins
are
reportedly
rooted
in
Victorian
era-England,
and
continued
at
the
start
of
the
Gilded
Age
in
America
in
the
1870s.
The
theme
covers
time
period
from
1870
to
1890
and
hence
designs
will
be
expected
to
have
glamed
up
versions
of
grand
ballgowns,
opulent
jewels,
white
elbow
length
gloves,
etc.
According
to
People,
the
outfits
may
include
“textiles
like
satin,
silk,
velvet,
and
fringe,
all
adorned
with
over-the-top
textures
like
lace,
bows,
frills,
and
ruffles.”

This
is
not
the
first
time
Met
Gala
has
adhered
to
a
White-Tie
theme.
Back
in
2014,
the
dress
code
was
White-Tie
with
the
theme
“Charles
James:
Beyond
Fashion”.
Met
Gala
that
year
celebrated
the
work
of
inventive
American
designer
Charles
James,
known
for
his
elaborate,
structural
ball
gowns.
