The Met Gala is basically the Super Bowl of celebrity red carpets and this year’s event certainly lived up to the hype. This year’s dress code was “gilded glamour” and here are five trends that Hollywood’s biggest stars put on the map while trying to stay on theme.

All That Shimmer

Shimmering dresses, especially golden and metallic ones, were all the rage at this year’s Met Gala. Kim Kardashian, Cardi B, Meghan Thee, Kaia Garber, Jessica Chastain, and Oliva Rodrigo were some of the stars to embrace this trend in their own way.

Sheer Black Gowns

Black sheer gowns are never going out of style. The list of celebrities who stick to this trend at the Met Gala includes Vanessa Hudgens, Kerry Washington, Phoebe Dynevor, and Maude Apatow.

Statement Headpieces

Tiaras, headwraps, and extravagant headpieces were the most popular accessory this year. Kylie Jenner, Janelle Monae, Blake Lively, and Anna Wintour herself gave this trend their seal of approval.

White With a Twist

Some of the stars attending the Met Gala looked positively bridal in their Met Gala dresses but put a twist on them with feathers, ruffles, and colorful details. Kylie Jenner, Cynthia Erivo, Hailey Bieber, Eiza Gonzalez, and Camila Cabello were among those embracing this trend.

Dramatic Gloves

Dramatic gloves came back stronger than ever at Met Gala and Blake Lively, Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, Gwen Stefani, and Khloe Kardashian couldn’t resist wearing them.
