It was all about the Gilded Age/Gilded Glamour for the Met Gala 2022. Although there seemed to be much to confusion about the theme.

Think about tight corsets, silk gowns, luscious velvet, ornate embroidery, and larger-than-life millinery and feathered headpieces. In short: old-timey but lavish, rich, and outrageous.”
