The best-dressed accessories at the Met Gala 2022: Cara Delevingne, Lizzo
So we’ve all tuned in to the 2022 Met Gala red carpet, critically judging the bespoke luxury dresses from our sweaty couches. In the end, we had the good, the bad and the “meh” of “Gilded Glamour” – and of course, hilarious internet memes too.
While the night featured plenty of snoozer looks – including an uneventful grand finale from Kim Kardashian-Monroe and Pete Davidson (saving the Vans) – there were some nice looks and even more tasteful incidental moments, with many of well-deserved wrist action.
As a detail geek who frequently touches on the refined luxury of overlooked fit features, I think it’s time to check out the real stars of the 2022 Met Gala: the accessories.
Come on, don’t be shy. A little drop never hurt anyone.
Quannah Rose Chasinghorse-Potts Handmade Jewelry
No thought; I’ll let Quannah Rose Chasinghorse-Potts Antelope Women Designs Pearl Jewelry speak for itself.
Lena Mahfouf’s theater glasses
Is there more golden glamor than French influencer Lena Mahfouf’s dazzling opera performances? I don’t think so, sir.
Mask of the future
While the Martin Luther King tattoo exhibited by Future won’t redeem his Met’ fit (or toxic king status), his custom Marianna Harutunian crystal mask and its grid might just save him.
Safe and icy, it really is the best part of the look.
Amy Schumer’s black sunglasses
There were a lot of black sunglasses in the crowd. But it’s something about Amy Schumer’s glasses that does it for me and makes up for her “meh” look.
Cara Delevingne’s golden pasties
Cara Delevingne’s look may have made our worst-dressed list, but you gotta appreciate the gold nipple pasties.
Sure, they’re not Met-worthy in our book, but Delevingne’s pasties give today’s Coachella trends a run for their money.
Winnie Harlow’s Helmet
It’s Winnie Harlow in an Iris van Herpen x Casey Curran crown – and it moves!
Her look was already a winner, but the crown brings home the trophy.
Alicia Keys CD Ponytail
If you thought the New York cape was the show stopper, you must have missed Alicia Keys’ CD stacked ponytail, performed by Fesa Nu.
I wonder if the records have “Empire State of Mind” on repeat. Hmm.
Lizzo’s Golden Flute
What’s so Lizzo about the 2022 Met Gala? A golden flute, that’s what. And I’m so here for it.
Sarah Jessica Parker’s helmet
Sarah Jessica Parker? No, that’s Carrie Bradshaw in that Philip Treacy helmet, baby.
Sure enough, Miss Bradshaw would approve of this and recite her famous phrase “I put a bird on my head”.
Ashton Sander Color Contacts
Ashton Sanders gave us Gilded Blade with his white contacts inspired by Marvel’s Vengeful Vampire, and honestly, I’m not mad about it.
Janicza Bravo Killer Hat
I loved his Schiaparelli ensemble for the Met, but his sculpted Stephen Jones hat made me a fan. I demand more Bravo hat moments on the red carpet.
