Met Gala 2022: get the looks with our dresses

Sabina Motasem Met Gala 2022

Met Gala 2022 celebrated “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” and the dress code for the evening was “Gilded Glamour.”

According to Vogue, the phrase "Gilded Age" was coined by Mark Twain and is a reference to the Industrial Age between 1870 to 1890. This year's Met Gala theme took inspiration from the cultural shift experienced in the United States, but more specifically in New York City. Rich and luxe fabrics, shiny embellishments and gold details immediately flooded my mind. 

Met Gala 2022 has created some talk already! From heavily guarded and archived Marilyn Monroe dresses to brand-new custom pieces, Met Gala 2022 is one to remember. Keep reading to see our favorite looks and how to recreate them with our dresses!

Kim Kardashian in vintage Jean Louis for Marilyn Monroe

Kim Kardashian Met Gala 2022 Marilyn Monroe

Kim Kardashian turned heads at the Met Gala 2022 by wearing a dress originally worn by screen goddess Marilyn Monroe 60 years ago. The crystal-studded gown, made by Jean Louis, is what Monroe wore when she infamously sang 'Happy Birthday, Mr. President' to President John F. Kennedy in 1962.

Marilyn Monroe crystal gown

The one-of-a-kind gold ensemble was purchased by executives at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for a staggering $4.8 million (£3.8 million) at auction in 2016. Since then, it has been kept in a temperature-controlled vault at a museum in Orlando, Florida. The dress was transported to Kardashian’s home in Calabasas, California by private plane and accompanied by guards.

Taking to Instagram, Kardashian said of the iconic outfit: "It is a stunning skin-tight gown adorned with more than 6,000 hand-sewn crystals by costumier Jean Louis. The dress could not be altered in any way", causing Kim K. to diet and lose 17 pounds to be able to fit into Monroe's dress for the Met Gala.



Lily Raindrop Sabina Motasem


This style was ever-so-popular when it released! Lily Raindrop is a beautiful, soft georgette over-dress encrusted with Swarovski crystals, with butterfly floaty sleeves, pretty satin covered buttons in the centre back, low back, V-neck and puddle train. Wear her along with a slip underneath to really channel Marilyn and Kim's look! Sadly this dress has now been discontinued but maybe we'll bring her back in the future...

Alexa Chung’s cream dress, designed by Christian Siriano, was paired with Mach & Mach accessories. I'm especially loving the delicately embellished bow details on Chung's heels.



Sabina Motasem Misty Dress

Now an archived style, Sabina Motasem's Misty was a great dupe for Chung's dress! You're in luck, though! We've got one sample of Misty left up for grabs!

Sky Ferreira, unknown designer

I am loving the cowl-neck on this figure-flattering dress that Sky Ferreira has decided to wear to this year's Met Gala! Although I couldn't find the exact designer who created this specific dress, don't fear! We've got a dress that's perfect for you!

Vivianna is a soft cowled neck, bias cut wedding dress. The cut allows the dress to skim over the hips with its beautifully draped skirt. Vivianna also features spaghetti straps and a plunging, low V back. Vivianna is made from our signature luxurious, ivory crepe silk.
