It’s all about ‘Gilded Glamour’ tonight. The 2022 Met Gala theme, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” is underway with celebrities bringing their A-game in the beauty department. Met Gala beauty is always exciting because this is the moment stars leave behind the no-makeup makeup and beach waves for major hair changes, both real and faux, and glam makeup that’s made to be noticed.

The theme is part two of last year’s “A Lexicon of Fashion.” According to Vogue, this year’s theme will celebrate the “inclusivity” of American fashion. In fact, 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.”

Vogue told its attendees to envision the late 1800s in New York City when choosing a look for tonight. Think “textiles like satin, silk, velvet, and fringe, all adorned with over-the-top textures like lace, bows, frills, and ruffles.” Of course, we’re bringing you the best of the best beauty looks to accompany these designs.
