Sebastian Stan, Kim Kardashian and more hit the Met Gala red carpet – live
From Blake Lively to Kim Kardashian, the best-dressed stars of the Met Gala stunned in vintage dresses and multiple outfit changes.
The theme of the evening’s Met Gala was “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” the second part of the Costume Institute’s exhibition, which opened on 18 September. The first part of the exhibition was reflected in last year’s Met Gala theme, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” which was in celebration of all things American Fashion.
Last year, the Met Gala took place on 13 September and the year before, it was cancelled due to the pandemic. Usually, around 600 celebrities are invited to mark the glitzy event in their social calendars, but this year and last, the numbers are closer to 400.
As per tradition, the guest list for this year’s event was carefully presided over by Vogue’s Anna Wintour, who has run the gala since 1995. It was announced earlier this year that the 2022 hosts would include Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who served as the night’s official co-chairs.
Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz have made their first red carpet appearance since their lavish wedding in April at last night’s Met Gala.
Beckham and Peltz, who got married on 9 April at Peltz’s family estate in Florida, said the first few weeks of married life had been “so much fun” and that it felt like they were “on a play date forever.”
The couple both wore Valentino, with Beckham in a cream suit and Peltz in a highlighter pink dress.
“Usually I go with a plain black suit. But this time I went (with) a sheer shirt and cream suit. Pier Paolo always kills it,” Beckham told Vogue.
Peltz said of her own outfit: “I’m so honoured. Every time I get to wear one of his dresses I’m so excited. You feel like a princess in them.”

Kim Kardashian says she was “honoured” to wear Marilyn Monroe’s JFK gown to the Met Gala.
The reality star also revealed that she lost 16 pounds in less than a month to fit into the dress, which was loaned to her from the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum.
The iconic dress was worn by Monroe during her Happy Birthday performance to US president John F Kennedy in 1962.
In an Instagram post, Kardashian said: “I am so honoured to be wearing the iconic dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in 1962 to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to President John F. Kennedy. It is a stunning skintight gown adorned with more than 6,000 hand-sewn crystals by costumier Jean Louis.
“Thank you Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for giving me the opportunity to debut this evocative piece of fashion history for the first time since the late Marilyn Monroe wore it. I am forever grateful for this moment.”

“I had a lot of fun doing it today and it was stressful too but in a good way,” she said about her DIY makeup. “I was like, ‘Alright, I got this.’”
