Met Gala 2022 Red Carpet worst dressed: What were Gigi Hadid, Camila Cabello and Lenny Kravitz thinking!
Each year, on the first Monday of May, Hollywood's biggest celebrities hit the red carpet in lavish and extravagant outfits, many of which are compulsively talked about by the public. And while some seriously slayed with their stunning looks this year, others completely missed the mark with their fabrics, patterns, overall styles and the theme 'Glided Glamour' including Camila Cabello, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kris Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Katy Perry.
Fashion in the Gilded Age became more expensive for the urban elite, with lace and crystal embellishments, as well as bird wings – milliners during the time wore caps with many feathers, wings, and stuffed dead birds. While thankfully we had no dead birds on the red carpet, some celebs came quite close to it with their fashion fails.
Tom Ford, co-chair at the high profile event publicly disagreed with some celebrities’ outfit choices from previous years. Ahead of the 2022 event, the designer criticized the evolution of fashion’s biggest night in an interview with Time that April. “The only thing about the Met I wish hadn’t happened is that it’s turned into a costume party,” he said. “You didn’t have to look like the 18th century, you didn’t have to dress like a hamburger, you didn’t have to arrive in a van where you were standing up because you couldn’t sit down because you wore a chandelier. It’s turned into a costume party.” He also reflected on how the evening “used to just be very chic people wearing very beautiful clothes going to an exhibition about the 18th century".

Perry wore a black and white, very skimpy dress to the ball; the tiny one-shoulder number left her long legs on full display. Her dress featured an asymmetrical neckline with a floral lace overlay and a black silk taffeta skirt. She teamed it with sheer opera gloves and drop diamond earrings. Perry is no stranger to controversial Met Gala dresses. Back in 2019, she dressed up like a chandelier and wore a gown that came complete with fake candles, before switching into a dress that was shaped like an actual hamburger for the afterparty. While this an upgrade from the hamburger and chandelier, darkness isn't your thing Katy! The skirt just looks a voluminous curtain pinned to the front if you ask us.
Kris Jenner, the matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, arrived at the 2022 Met Gala in Oscar de la Renta, complete with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Kris wore a silky yellow gown and sleek white gloves. The reality star donned a black bob wig to complement her luxe fashion ensemble. In her own words, she was channeling Jackie Kennedy tonight, but we wonder if that is really working for her. The yellow blanket like look puts her on our worst-dressed look for sure. She could have taken some pointers from Kim Kardashian at least.
Cabello wore a white dress with unflattering, floral ruffles on it - which appeared to be inspired by the cereal Fruit Loops. The awkward gown, which contained a long train, left her midriff on full display. Camila needed to edit down her outfit in a big way. The Havana songstress kept her long brown locks pulled up in a bun. She completed the awkward ensemble with a floral hair accessory and long dangling earrings.
Kravitz sported a gender-bending outfit that featured a sheer lace corset, embroidered lace sleeves, and a lace cape. Though the gala was in support of the Costume Institute’s “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” exhibit, Lenny decided to do a throwback to the 2013 theme of “Punk: From Chaos to Couture.” Dreadlocks, Dracula vibes, he's really not listening!
We expected something much better from the supermodel other than a GIANT puffer jacket. Hadid wore a red vinyl catsuit with a corset top that was nearly identical to what she rocked on the Versace runway. It looked great for something like the VMAs, but not the 'Gilded Glamour'-themed Met Gala. However, she did add a huge, puffy coat for a dramatic entrance when arriving at the event.
Ratajkowski topped the Met Gala's worst-dressed list in a nearly-naked carnival look. Her rainbow beaded top left little to imagination, while her ruffled, colorful skirt ensured all attention was on her. The model seems to have taken Katy Perry's chandelier look quite seriously, however, for the gilded age, this colorful outfit certainly missed the mark.
SARAH JESSICA PARKER
Parker's black and white, ghastly gingham gown wasn't eye-catching enough, the 57-year-old Sex and the City alum paired the look with a huge headpiece - which certainly ensured that all eyes were on her.
Put some effort into it AMY! Schumer, 40, appeared somber on the carpet in an all-black dress, which had long strings hanging off of it. The monochrome black dress was no way near to the theme 'Glided Glamour'. She also sported dark sunglasses, looking like she'd rather be anywhere but on the red carpet.
Stan, 29, wore a Valentino pink overcoat, matching long sleeve shirt, bomber jacket and trousers, all in the same shade of hot pink. He even picked totally pink sneakers — complete with color-coordinated laces. Though his outfit was perfect for a night out at the disco, the actor missed hitting the Met Gala theme.
The actress chose a white and black outfit. She paired her dress with a dramatic shawl and a retro hairstyle. Williams' outfit gave us some 'Game of Thrones' vibes with the white plastered face, missing eyebrows and goth touch overall. We'll definitely give her points for the corset but a little more creativity would have landed her on the best dressed list certainly.
