The 2022 Met Gala is in full swing and celebs are strutting their best head-turning looks on the carpet. As previously reported this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Gala theme is “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” with an emphasis on Gilded Glamour, as requested by Anna Wintour.

This year guests were asked to channel the time period between 1870 to 1890 and attendees were asked to “embody the grandeur — and perhaps the dichotomy — of Gilded Age New York,” reported Vogue.

With that in mind, let’s look at some style standouts.

Blake Lively arrived early and sizzled the carpet in a custom Atelier Versace gown, which featured a reversible train.

With assistance, she flipped the train and revealed an aqua side that cascaded down the carpet in homage to the Statue of Liberty and the aging of copper that happens over time.
