Met Gala 2022: The Best Memes From The Star-Studded Night

·6-min read

The Met Gala is a time to celebrate the best in art, design and collaboration. It’s also a time to lightly poke fun at some celebrities’ more ‘adventurous’ looks and hilarious moments from the night with memes.

For last year’s Met Gala, themed 'In America: A Lexicon of Fashion', several A-listers including the likes of Gigi Hadid and Billie Eilish oozed Hollywood glamour, while others opted for more risqué ensembles like the ‘naked’ dress, courtesy of Kendall Jenner and Zoë Kravitz. Meanwhile Jennifer Lopez had a far more literal interpretation of the US-based theme, wearing a cowboy hat and gun-holster.

Of course, who can forget Kim Kardashian’s Balenciaga head-to-toe face covering black outfit or Lil Nas X’s three-layered ensemble? Both resulted in countless memes across the Internet and served as the butt of many jokes in the weeks following.

Following tonight's Met Gala 2022, here’s a list of the best memes to come from the red carpet extravaganza:

Blake Lively's Statue Of Liberty-inspired dress

Lively stunned onlookers at the Met Gala this year with her Frozen-inspired Atelier Versace dress transformation. The actor's Lively's princess-style dress changed colours as she ascended the Met's steps. Assistants were seen pulling the gigantic bow on her dress, transforming the dress from rose gold to aqua blue.

Later revealing the Statue of Liberty inspiration behind the look and Lorraine Schwartz crown ('Instead of looking to fashion to influence the dress, I looked to New York City architecture and classic buildings,' she told E! News), fans soon began to compare the star to the famous structure.

Lizzo wore a corset and played the flute

Not one to disappoint, Lizzo wore a hand-embroidered gold and black coat with a black, gown by Thom Browne, styled with a gold choker necklace and super long black nails.

However, it wasn't so much her outfit as it was her gold musical instrument that caught Twitter's attention.

Frustration over the theme's execution

Following on from last year's 'In America: A Lexicon of Fashion' theme, this year's Met Gala presents part two of the accompanying exhibition, 'In America: An Anthology of Fashion'. Yet the dress code - 'Gilded Glamour, White-Tie', seemed to confuse fans and celebrities alike.

Paul Mescal's moustache

When Mescal hit our screens in early 2020 wearing his chain as Connell in Normal People and subsequently stole hearts across the world, we thought the actor's power couldn't reach new heights. That was until we saw him sporting a tache at the Met Gala on Monday night...

Tuxedo backlash

Every year fans of the Met Gala become enraged at failing to see male attendees abide by the evening's theme, opting instead to wear black tuxedos which many deem to be lacklustre.

The devastation over Zendaya's no-show

Despite Zendaya informing fans last month that she'd be unable to attend this year's Met Gala due to work commitments, it didn't stop her fans from mourning the evening's loss.

Shawn Mendes came as Doctor Strange

Several of Mendez' fans couldn't help but notice the striking resemblance between him and Benedict Cumberbatch's character in Doctor Strange:
