Met Gala 2022: How to Watch and Live Stream the Event

Met Gala fans can expect the celebrity event to this year continue its tradition of celebrating fashion at its very finest on Monday, May 2.

"Fashion's Biggest Night" sees the A-list elite dust-down their tuxedos and don the most glamorous gowns imaginable to ascend the steps of New York City's prestigious Metropolitan Museum of Arts (MOMA).

One of the hottest nights in show business made its eagerly anticipated return in September 2021, after being previously postponed due to the pandemic.

Although this exclusive invitation-only event is almost certainly inaccessible to mere mortals, you can still expect a virtual pass thanks to the Met Gala 2022 live stream.

What Is The 2022 Met Gala Theme?

This year's Met Gala is to celebrate the second volume of the Costume Institute's patriotic exhibition, "In America: An Anthology of Fashion," after "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion."

The event anticipates the opening of the second exhibition at MOMA by The Costume Institute.

In America: An Anthology of Fashion opens on May 5, 2022, in the period rooms of the American Wing, with both this and the earlier show, which opened late last year, on display until September 5, 2022.

The exhibition finds head curator of the MOMA's Costume Institute, Andrew Bolton, shine a spotlight on "inclusivity in fashion".

A statement on Vogue's site reads: "'Who gets to be American?' was a question posed at [U.S. fashion designer] Prabal Gurung's spring/summer 2020 show, and it will be addressed at the Met Gala 2022, as well."
