Roommates, it’s the first Monday in May and that means that the 2022 Met Gala is finally here–and the celebrities did not come to play with their looks for fashion’s biggest night! Sure, there are other red carpets, but absolutely nothing comes close to the high fashion that graces the steps at the Met Gala…and your faves came through with the top-tier level of drip.
Kicking things off early this year was LaLa Anthony, who was drapped out in a luxe burgundy ensemble designed by LaQuan Smith–and she tapped into the theme wearing an embellished hat.
Met Gala 2022 co-host Vanessa Hudgens proved that she is a very long way from her ‘High School Musical’ roots by wearing a black, lace see-through gown with a billowing train that had heads turning as soon as she hit the red carpet.
Janelle Monae was giving everything that she had and serving a moments, showing up wearing a full-length black beaded gown, complete with a pearl-encrusted headdress.
Leslie Odom Jr.
Leslie Odom Jr. decided to step outside the traditional box for the Met Gala and serve us a LEWK, in one of the most interesting male ensembles of the night.
Known to bring his best fashion game when it comes to the red carpet, Ashton Sanders kept the same energy this year…and added some white contacts as an accessory.
Was clearly still feeling the fashion vibes he brought to this year’s Grammys, as he showed up to the Met Gala with the same Beatles-style wig and 70s-inspired fashions.

For the first time ever, all of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters were invited to the Met Gala–and Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie, Kendall and Kris were all there are putting their designer gowns on display.
The Queen of the Barbz, Nicki Minaj, attended the Met Gala wearing an all-black look featuring a tulle skirt and leather pants, then she topped it off with a baseball cap.
Cardi B made her fans wait for her arrival, but it was definitely worth it! Hitting the red carpet wearing an embellished, figure-enhancing Versace gown (and accompanied by Donatella Versace herself) Cardi looked a a glittery, bejeweled award at this year’s Met Gala!
