Met Gala 2022 Red Carpet Rundown – Part One

Posted on May 05, 2022

If you’ve missed out on our extensive coverage of Met Gala 2022, by all means, go check it out! Time to wrap this one up! LFG!

 

 

Alicia Keys in Ralph Lauren

The dress is great, but the cape is a work of art.

 

 

 

Awkwafina in Gucci

Girl, this is hideous. Do you not have a mirror or any friends?

 

 

 

Camila Cabello in Atelier Prabal Gurung

The flowers look cheap and the design of that top is a hate crime.

 

 

 

Claire Danes (in Lanvin) and Hugh Dancy

It’s a good thing she brought him, because we think her dress only works in tandem with his suit, which is gorgeous on him. The veil adds nothing.

 

 

 

Cynthia Erivo in Louis Vuitton

If we’re being honest, we think the design of the dress is pretty awful, but that turban and her own ability to work tricky looks is elevating everything. The bag doesn’t go at all.

 

 

 

Daisy Edgar-Jones in Oscar de la Renta

A pretty enough dress, but completely underwhelming in this context. Girl, it’s the Met Gala. Get your hair done.

 

 

 

Dakota Johnson in Gucci

The jumpsuit is kind of fun, insofar as you can call a lace jumpsuit with fringe fun. Doesn’t really do much for the theme, but that giant velvet coat really takes the look somewhere. Too bad it looks so much like a bathrobe.

 

 

Denée Benton in Moschino

We hate the bustline, but we love everything else about the look. They better send her character to a ball in the second season of The Gilded Age. She deserves it and she can work the hell out of a pair of opera gloves.

 

 

Erykah Badu in Marni

God bless this one-of-a-kind wackadoo. Never change, queen.

 

 

 

Gemma Chan in Louis Vuitton

We love that someone tried a skirt shape other than the bustle, which wasn’t the only style available during the Gilded Age. We just wish the skirt were longer and we don’t think the jacket does anything for the design.

 

 

 

Glenn Close in Valentino

Where’s the Auntie Mame remake, we ask you? SHE’S STANDING RIGHT THERE, HOLLYWOOD. Get on it.

 

 

 

Jessie Buckley in Schiaparelli

It’s a gorgeous suit and we love the cheekiness of the look. Given how bad her red carpet style has been, we think she should probably indulge in this kind of look more often. The mustache is cute, but it looks like she did it with a Sharpie in the limo ride over.

 

 

 

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner in Louis Vuitton

We love everything about her gothy, consumptive, pre-Raphaelite look. He just looks silly standing next to her.

 

 

 

Kaia Gerber in Alexander McQueen

Another great deployment of pre-Raphaelite hair. The dress is pretty, if a little underwhelming.

 

 

 

Kiky Layne in Prabal Gurung

This is so damn fabulous we almost can’t stand it. The combination of that massive afro and that borderline ridiculous teapot bag is chef’s-kiss perfect.

 

 

Laura Harrier in H&M

 

The style’s completely wrong for the period in question, but she looks amazing in this.

 

 

Lily James in Atelier Versace

She looks super-hot and the design is pretty gorgeous, but we’re thinking it’s time for her to get away from the sexy Versace looks for a while.

 

 

 

Madelaine Petsch in Moschino

What a stunning textile, perfectly utilized. The pleating is impeccable and we really love the shape of this.

 

 

 

Maude Apatow in Miu Miu

This may be the only instance of us truly loving the Mickey Mouse bust, which has been so trendy of late. This is elegant and sophisticated.

 

 

 

Mindy Kaling in Prabal Gurung

Whereas this is stale and underwhelming. We feel like we’ve seen this gown a thousand times.

 

 

 

Nicki Minaj in Burberry

The belt is too big and the bust sits too low, but the rest of it is a fabulous way of updating and modernizing several 19th Century fashion motifs.

 

 

 

Normani in Christian Siriano

Ditto. It’s giving sexy 21st Century Eliza Doolittle and we just can’t be mad at it.

 

 

 

Phoebe Bridgers in Jonathan Simkhai

Nice enough, we guess.

 

 

Renée Elise Goldsberry in Carolina Herrera

There were a lot of fairly boring black gowns on that red carpet, but we love the detauls on this one. Those white flowers do so much to elevate the look, as does her gorgeous hair, all of the jewelry and that fabulous bag.

 

 

 

Sydney Sweeney in Tory Burch

Meh. Seen it.

 

Part Two!
