Met Gala is one of the biggest events in the annual fashion calendar and this year is expected to be no exception. Like every year, the Costume Institute has enlisted a host of celebrities to co-chair the event, and this year Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively will take the stage. Meanwhile, Regina King and Lin-Manuel Miranda will serve as the official co-chairs and hosts. Met Gala is annually organised by Vogue and held in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Met Gala 2022 theme is ‘Gilded Glamour,’ as well as ‘White Tie,’ which aims to be a reference to old-style 19th-century industrialisation, as well as highlighting issues such as the haves and have not. The Gala first started in 1948, and it was exclusively attended by the elites of New York society. However, things changed and now people from the world of show business, fashion and business, and beyond, can attend.
Though the exact guest list for the event is unknown, there are a number of predictions we can make about who will attend. Traditionally, Anna Wintour selects celebrities and designers to co-chair the event alongside her. In 2021, Anna selected actor Timothée, musician Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman, and tennis star Naomi Osaka as hosts, with honorary hosts chairs including Tom Ford and Adam Mosseri.
Celebrities Attending Met Gala 2022
One celebrity who’s rumoured to definitely attend this year’s event is Taylor Swift, but she hasn’t been seen walking up the steps since 2016. Other names expected to attend this year include Rihanna, the Kardashian & Jenners, newly engaged Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, and Megan Thee Stallion. Meanwhile, Katy Perry is thought to be taking a night off from her Vegas residency to attend this year, teasing Page Six that she’s ‘going to play a whole different card.’
Adele, Kim Kardashian and her new boyfriend Pete Davidson, Billie Eilish and brother Finneas, actors Timothee Chalamet, Kristen Stewart and Gemma Chan, and musicians Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, Hailee Steinfeld and Camila Cabello have all reportedly been invited to this year’s event. Directors Sofia Coppola, Chloé Zhao and Martin Scorsese are also expected to be in attendance.
