What's the Met Gala theme this year?

The first part of the event was titled 'In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, which was held on September 5, 2022, to "celebrate The Costume Institute's 75th anniversary and explore a modern vocabulary of American fashion.'' 

Throwback! The weirdest, wildest & craziest looks from the last year Met Gala

Part two and the theme of this year's gala is 'In America: An Anthology of Fashion' and "will explore the development of American fashion''. The theme that will follow the fashion sense of the 1870 -1890s will see celebs decked up in the vintage styles. As per vogue, it will be gilded glamour, and white-tie and ''will ask its attendees to embody the grandeur, and perhaps the dichotomy.''
