In pictures: The best dressed stars at 2022 Met Gala

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson were among the A-listers in attendance

NEW YORK: Fashion’s biggest night out, the Met Gala, returned to New York City, drawing A-list celebrities from across the globe to the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on its traditional date, the first Monday in May, for the first time since 2019.

Canceled in 2020 and postponed until September last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the gala’s true purpose is to raise funds for the museum’s Costume Institute, which are often paid for by the companies and brands hosting celebrity guests.

With the theme “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” following last year’s “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”, the fundraising event had a dress code of “gilded glamour”.

Stars across industries including TV, film, politics and sport did not disappoint, bringing exaggerated silhouettes, elegant accessories and moments of drama to the Met Gala on Monday evening. Here are the best looks from the 2022 Met Gala red carpet:
