She recently won Best Actress in a Musical at the Oliver Awards for her turn as Sally Bowles in the West End Musical Cabaret.

This year’s dress code was ‘gilded glamour’ to match the theme of ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ a continuation of last year’s ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.’ 

The theme was inspired by an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which traces the evolution of American fashion.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, also known as the Met Gala, is considered by many to be the ‘Super Bowl of celebrity red carpets.’

Fashion’s biggest night is traditionally held the first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute in New York City, though last year’s event moved to September due to the pandemic.

Tickets for the glitzy event reportedly cost up to $35,000 apiece, while prices for a table range from $200,000 to $300,000, with last year’s bash raking in a whopping $16.4 million for the Met’s Costume Institute.

Regina King, power couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda are hosting this time, taking over from Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka. 

It marked Miranda’s first time as a Met Gala co-chair (and guest), after he was originally intended to co-host the 2020 edition before the pandemic forced its cancellation.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour once again supervised the benefit as chairwoman, a position she’s held since 1995. Her fellow honorary co-chairs are designer Tom Ford and Instagram head Adam Mosseri. 

As usual, the sartorial theme came from the exhibit the gala launches: ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ which is the second of star curator Andrew Bolton’s two-part show exploring the roots of American style.

This exhibit showcases some lesser-known designers, and also some top film directors, including Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese, host King, and last year’s Oscar winner Chloé Zhao.
