"Me getting ready to judge the met gala looks from the comfort of my bed."
This year, the Met Gala theme was 'Gilded Glamour and white tie', tying into the the Met's "In America: An Anthology of Fashion" exhibition. (2022's theme was also a continuation of 2021's theme, "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion".)
As always with the Met Gala, the red carpet offerings were a mixed bag. While some absolutely nailed the theme with perfect execution (Blake Lively, you're doing amazing sweetie!), not everyone managed to turn a 'Gilded Glamour' look.
Of course, the internet was watching on with their Fashion Police badges at the ready, their Miranda Priestly-level judgement dialled up to 100... And the memes were out of control.
Here's some of the best memes, tweets and reactions to the 2022 Met Gala red carpet.
Me? Judging? Never!
Gold? For Gilded Glamour? Groundbreaking.

This is actually iconic from Bad Bunny, tbh.
Some people weren't too excited by Emma Stone's lewk.
(FYI, Emma re-wore her own Louis Vuitton wedding dress for the event, opting for a statement on sustainability rather than an extravagant gilded spectacle. While she looked gorgeous, others wanted her to channel the impeccable costume design of Cruella.)
