Corsets, grand dame dresses, draperies, and caps inspired by the Sky series The Gilded Age, triumphed at the Met Gala 2022. And then very long skirts with endless aftermath.
This year’s edition of the MET referred to the golden years of the 80s and 90s of the late ‘800s. The New York high society opposed the arrival of the new bourgeoisie that became wealthy thanks to the wave of well-being and prosperity due to the ever-increasing industrialization of the country. Almost scenographic dresses, such as Sarah Jessica Parker in Christopher John Rogers with a black and white bustier dress with a majestic skirt, pay homage to the black designer Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley.
The meters of the skirt are not counted even for Kendall Jenner in Givenchy Haute Couture, who opts for crinolines and rouches breaking the look with a crop top in transparent Tuttle covered with microcrystals. Contrasting outfits and grand dancing volumes also for her sister Kylie formal in the skirt and sporty above in Off-White.
Admired Vanessa Hudgens, one of the interviewers of the guests, upon their arrival on the red carpet for the live broadcast on Vogue channels. The talented actress and singer have chosen a Moschino by Jeremy Scott creation with bold transparencies with lace lingerie on display. In lace also the long trail, always black, Anna Wintour, legendary Global Editorial Director of Vogue and Chief Content Officer of all Condé Nast publications, is always among the first to tread the red carpet of the Gala of the Costume Institute of the Met of which she is the absolute supervisor. For the occasion, the famous journalist has once again chosen Chanel, a creation with a colorful hood, completed by a crown on the head.
Twenty-year-old Youtuber Emma Chamberlain has arrived in Louis Vuitton, a set with a long skirt and crop top with puff sleeves, all drapes completed by a precious choker.
There is the profile of the Manhattan skyline on the hood of Alicia Keys, the work of the very American Ralph Lauren.
