What is Gilded Glamour, the theme of the Met Gala 2022

Contrary to all white themed birthdays, Hawaiian parties or Swinging Sixties in which we have been forced to dress in terrible ways and diametrically opposed to our tastes, the Met Gala is the one dress code event that everyone loves. After two extraordinary years, in which Anna Wintour, Tom Ford and company invited us to interpret the aesthetic codes of kitsch in Camp: Notes on Fashion (2020) and American independence in In America: A Fashion Lexicon, for the 2022 edition it is time to rewrite the anthology of American fashion… Starting with the Gilded Age of New York. Read under the heading In America: An Anthology of Fashiongolden glamor style.

The Met Gala 2022 will be held on the so-called “first Monday in May”, that is, the first Monday in May, and will be presented by Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Lin-Manuel Miranda or Regina King. The Gilded Glamor theme refers to the period between 1870 and 1890 in New York.a time of “unprecedented prosperity, cultural change, industrialization, when both skyscrapers and fortunes seemed to grow overnight,” quoting the article from Fashion with which Elise Taylor announced the historical moment of reference for the guests who will pose on the red carpet of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 2.

From the invention of the light bulb by Thomas Edison to The Age of Innocence Y the house of joyboth famous novels by Edith Wharton from which the films were taken, going through the paintings of John Singer Sargent or the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell and arriving at the illustrations of the Gibson Girls and the Beaux Arts style palaces built by the Parsons families , Hewitt and Vanderbilt on Fifth Avenue, these are the inspirations that are preparing to animate the clothes of celebrities. Password: glamor. These were the years of inventions, constructions, and newspapers, as well as overlays, layers, and decorations. From Countess Olenska’s description in The Age of Innocence:

“Everything about her shimmered and shimmered softly, as if her dress were woven by candlelight, and she held her head high, like a beautiful woman challenging a room full of rivals.”

Made in a long series of fabrics such as satin, tulle and velvet, Gilded Age clothing was overly ornate of fringes, bows and rhinestones, of embroidery, lace and ruffles. The colors were the dazzling ones of jewels, while the light and dusty tones were only used in the houses. Hats were a must and often featured feather appliqués while corsets were worn all day, every day. In addition to the formal, a first version of sportswear was extended, which for women was translated into long skirts and blouses that facilitated movement. Special mention also to the tuxedoborn in 1880 during an event in Tuxedo Park.

For the uninitiated, “Gilded” translates to golden. For this reason, this year’s Met dress code takes on great importance: from the days of John Galliano’s Dior Haute Couture collections and fashion show. Portrait from Vivienne Westwood to the trend of period dramas dictated by the soap operas of the moment (in how many have you seen the golden age on HBO in one go?), Gilded Glamour, golden glamour, has always been an invitation to be reborn and welcome change – cultural, social, political. And thanks to this year’s Met Gala, it’s poised to stay that way.
