'Vogue' Announces Met Gala 2022 Dress Code: Gilded Glamour
Guests of fashion’s biggest night are invited to wear Gilded Age-inspired attire.
“The 2022 Met Gala will ask its attendees to embody the grandeur—and perhaps the dichotomy—of Gilded Age New York,” the fashion publication wrote. The term, coined by Mark Twain in 1873, refers to the period between 1870 and 1890 when the world was experiencing industrialization, cultural change and economic growth.
The magazine’s writer Elise Taylor added: “Colors were rich and deep jewel tones. Lighter colors were only worn only at home, as they were impractical while walking in the streets of New York. Hats were a necessity when going out and often were adorned with feathers.” More key fashion items include corsets, which women commonly used until the 1890s. Wardrobes also included sportswear and leisurewear, thanks to the rise of sports such as bicycling and tennis, in addition to extravagant gowns.
