Blake Lively and the Pop Stars Stun at the Met Gala 2022

Hosted by Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Lin-Manuel Miranda, the fashion world’s most glamorous and starriest event, the MET Gala, took place today.

The much-loved celebration of fashion is a charity event that is considered a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute and raises eight-figure sums year after year.

The theme for this year’s MET Gala is “Gilded Glamour” which according to ELLE is “intended as an homage to American history, particularly that of the Gilded Age, which ran roughly from 1870 to 1900.”

Though not everyone keeps up with the theme, each year the list of attendees who don’t stick to it seems to be getting longer and longer. Just like every year, the MET Gala exhibition this year too was star-studded! It includes familiar faces like actors from the big and small screens, models, artists, etc. We are going to talk about the pop stars and musical artists who showed off their looks today at the MET!

Although stars like Rihanna and Queen Bey were unfortunately not in attendance, and we missed their presence deeply, some of our pop stars, too, were stunning at the event.

 

Before we begin, we MUST talk about, (not Bruno) but the talk of all your social media feeds and the internet today, the ‘Gossip Girl’ star – Blake Lively! The star opted to work with her go-to red carpet brands – Atelier Versace. Her first outfit was a copper dress which was then unveiled to reveal a green one. It represented the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and Grand Central Terminal, as per CBS News.

 

 

The star has been known for “understanding the assignment” each year and has been lauded for the same.

Lively and her husband actor – Ryan Reynolds were co-hosting this evening and their looks certainly did not disappoint.

 

 

Actor, singer-songwriter, playwright, and filmmaker – Lin-Manuel Miranda wore his long-tailed best designed by ‘Hamilton’ costume designer Paul Tazewell. The star was joined by his wife Vanessa Nadal on the carpet.

The Oscar-winning actor and musician Riz Ahmed wore a silk shirt and undershirt to the event. The star topped off with an understated Cartier necklace. “This is an homage to the immigrant workers who kept the Gilded Age going,” Ahmed said.

In their article about the same, Vogue’s Emma Specter wrote: “Ahmed’s nod to the reality of the Gilded Age—a time in American history when rapid economic growth benefited the wealthy few, while leading to rampant exploitation for the majority of immigrant workers—was a powerful evocation of the very real persecution that immigrants, and particularly immigrants of color, still face in the U.S. and elsewhere, with the effects of racist Gilded Age-era policies like the Chinese Exclusion Act still affecting how Asian immigrant groups are treated today.”
