It was merely eight months ago, in September 2021, that designers and their muses, alongside actors, singers, and influencers, gathered to celebrate American fashion with In America: A Lexicon of Fashion. Tonight, in keeping with the Met Gala's first Monday in May tradition, the event will unveil part two with In America: An Anthology of Fashion. In short, the theme will represent the era of Gilded Glamour, spanning from 1870 to 1900. We anticipate voluminous bustles, intricate beadwork, and loads of gold-flecked hair and makeup looks.

Official co-chairs of the event include Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. At the same time, Anna Wintour, Tom Ford, and Instagram's Adam Mosseri will host as honorary co-chairs. Keep on scrolling to see some of the evening's gilded fashion looks from fashion and Hollywood's golden stars, from Beyoncé and Rhianna to Bridgerton's Nicola Coughlin.
