    15 Met Gala Attendees Who Anna Wintour Would Approve Of, And 14 Met Gala Attendees Who Won't Be Invited Next Year

    Not gonna lie...one of the most excited themes had one of the most underwhelming carpets...

    It is the FIRST TUESDAY IN MAY! AKA the day after the Met Gala! This year's theme was "In America: An Anthology of Fashion" and the dress code was "gilded glamour."

    In case you're like, "What is the Gilded Age?" Don't fret. This is how Vogue described the dress code for last night's festivities:

    "The 2022 Met Gala will ask its attendees to embody the grandeur — and perhaps the dichotomy — of Gilded Age New York. The period, which stretched from 1870 to 1890 (Mark Twain is credited with coining the term in 1873), was one of unprecedented prosperity, cultural change, and industrialization, when both skyscrapers and fortunes seemingly arose overnight."

    So, think more Gone With the Wind and less The Great Gatsby.
