After several pandemic postponements, this year’s Met Gala will be held on the first Monday of May; just eight months after 2021’s star-studded red carpet which saw stellar looks from the likes of Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X and Kendall Jenner, reports Page Six.

This year's Met Gala theme is “In America: Fashion Anthology,” celebrating the museum's next exhibition on May 5. The dress code for the 2022 event is “Gilded Glamour and White Tie”, referring to the extravagant era of American fashion in the last decades of the 19th century, when industrialisation rapidly widened the wealth gap in the country.
