Wedding-Worthy Looks within the 2022 Met Gala
The first Monday in May has traditionally been fashion’s biggest particular date (aka the Met Gala). This year, after a couple of years of pandemic-shifted plans, it absolutely was back and than ever before. The theme was ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion, as well as the wedding dresses code, was ‘Gilded Glamour, White Tie’. Attendees were inspired to interpret late 19th-century fashion using a modern lens. The results were spectacular! And, while there’s always some incredible wedding dress and suit inspiration located on the Met Gala red carpet, this year the stars embraced bridal in a big way. (There was a proposal!) Multiple guests wore white dresses and actual wedding gowns. And, obviously, there has been also plenty of glittery gold dresses. I can’t wait to find out these looks on fashion-forward real brides this season. Here are just numerous of my favorite wedding-worth ensembles within the 2022 Met Gala.
Let’s start with Hailey Bieber because I’m officially excited about her look and it’s PERFECT for just about any bride. Hailey opted for a white silk slip dress by Saint Laurent using a low back and dramatic slit. She paired it using a statement feather shawl. Not only did the gown look spectacular, but her hair and makeup were the epitomai of understated chic. I know plenty of brides will probably be using images within the event as bridal beauty inspiration when they have their hair and makeup trials!
Alexa Chung never disappoints inside the style stakes. She wore a very elegant, slinky silk gown by Christian Siriano in the gorgeous shade of cream that’s an incredible option to classic white for just about any bride. The magic was all inside the draping, using a gathered off-the-shoulder panel creating a unique focus. Don’t hesitate to opt for just about any new twist around the classic silhouette on your wedding day!
Actress Eiza González wowed around the 2022 Met Gala red carpet in their spectacular Michael Kors gown. It featured exquisite beading – over 28,000 crystals sewn manually! I loved the ostrich feathers around the skirt as well as the matching wrap. (Ostrich feathers may also be very much on-trend in bridal at this time.) Eiza styled the glamorous gown using a sparkling Bulgari necklace and wore her hair in the sleek, shiny chignon. Although the plunging neckline might be a bit too dramatic for a number of brides, the general look works perfectly for just about any wedding or just like a glittery after-party gown.
Another star who looked ready to walk around the aisle was Miranda Kerr. The model was resplendent in their stunning white Oscar de la Renta gown. The sweetheart neckline and draped, ruched bodice paired perfectly having an ethereal a-line skirt, for just about any glamorous modern take around the princess bride. Miranda also opted for a sleek chignon (have you been seeing a theme here?). However, she opted for just about any bold scarlet lip which really popped in the white dress.
Forget wedding-inspired fashion – Emma Stone wore among her actual wedding gowns around the red carpet! This Luis Vuitton feathered mini was the gown she chose for your afterparty on her behalf wedding to Dave McCary, and it’s a perfect inspiration for that second wedding dress too! Strappy white and silver heels plus a sweet ballerina bun finished off the look.
Ramla Ali also chose feathers plus a ballerina bun on her behalf ensemble but using a completely different look that was perfect for just about any bold bride. The Giambattista Valli dress stood a statement feather bodice, a voluminous mini, and a long overskirt. (This kind of convertible fashion is popular in bridal for just about any reason!) Her pearl-encrusted shoes were extremely bridal, but I loved they paired them using a unique Cartier necklace and bangle as opposed to a safer choice. Don’t hesitate to possess fun along with your accessories just like a bride – it doesn’t have to be crystals and pearls.
Of course, I have to range in the most memorable vintage wedding dresses of the night, worn by Kylie Jenner. The gown can be a special tribute to Off-White founder Virgil Abloh, using a huge ruffled skirt, and draped bodice around the mesh t-shirt. And, some brides won’t copy her backward baseball cap veil styling, I loved the playfulness of combining classic bridal with street style. Kylie’s second Met Gala dress was extremely wedding-worthy (and again, well suited for an after-party).
Of course, a bride doesn’t have to wear a dress-up costume at all! Chloë Grace Moretz wore white pants, a crop top, and a tie underneath a wonderful platinum military-style overcoat by Luis Vuitton, with metallic heels plus a faux pixie hairdo. It would be a stylish option for just about any bride who'd rather wear trousers but wants something that’s still ornate and unlike anything, you’ll wear inside your everyday living.
