How to Watch the Met Gala Red Carpet (Plus More Details About Fashion’s Biggest Event)

If you're wondering how to watch the 2022 Met Gala red carpet without having to stand behind crowds of people in the New York City streets, then we've got you covered. We've compiled a foolproof guide to the major event. That way, you won't waste time scrolling through Twitter to try and see who wore the wildest outfits this year (and in case you were unaware, the theme will be “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” with a specific focus on “Gilded Glamour,” so you know it's going to be good).

Per usual, the fundraiser will take place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where the Met's Costume Institute will unveil their annual fashion exhibit. All of the attendees (who paid around $30k for their tickets) will walk the Met Gala steps and show off their show-stopping outfits.

1. How To Watch The Met Gala Red Carpet

The 2022 Met Gala will once again be available to stream on Vogue's website, as well as the publication's social media accounts, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. For those with cable, E! will be hosting a red carpet special, titled Live From E!: Met Gala. The channel will air the event, while the E! News TikTok account will film attendees as they leave the Mark Hotel to head to the event.

2. What Time Does The Met Gala Start?

The 2022 Met Gala will take place on Monday, May 2. The red carpet arrivals will begin at 6 p.m. ET./3 p.m. PT.

3. What Is This Year's Theme?

The theme for this year's Met Gala is a continuation of the 2021 event (which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic). Last September, the Met Gala debuted the “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” exhibit, which is being continued this spring with part two, titled “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.” However, this gala will have a specific focus on “Gilded Glamour.” (And we'll have to see how the guests interpret that theme when they arrive to the red carpet on Monday, May 2.)

4. Who Are This Year's Hosts?

In typical fashion, the celebrity co-chairs for this year's gala are quite the list of notable names. Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Lin-Manuel Miranda will all serve as co-chairs, while Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri and Anna Wintour will serve as honorary chairs. The event is being sponsored by Instagram.

5. What Celebs Will Show Up To The Event?

Besides the A-list roster of co-chairs, we can likely expect last year's stars—Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka—to make a reappearance. Meanwhile, with Lively hosting, some are guessing that her good pal, Taylor Swift, will return to the Met Gala for the first time since 2016. Other stars, like Katy Perry and Sydney Sweeney, have confirmed that they'll be in attendance. But, the one person we're really dying to see? Rihanna—who always makes a major statement on the Met steps. And we're hoping she will bring her iconic pregnancy fashion to the fundraiser (*fingers crossed*).
