Met Gala 2022 Theme
The Met Gala 2022 theme was ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion’, and the dress code was ‘Gilded Glamour and White Tie’. The theme focused on the depth of fashion, and the exhibition showcased unrecognized heroes who have advanced the American design world. Going by the theme, celebrities were free to go full-on period dramas and focus on the era of American fashion in the last decades of the 19th century.

Natasha Poonawalla amazed everyone with her Sabyasachi-meets-Schiaparelli creation, and it’s one that manages to champion each designer’s individual strengths while also blending happily together as a cohesive whole.
Dressing for such a massive event of the Met Gala can give you a lot of pressure, but there’s something about Poonawalla’s penchant for dramatic outfits that tells us it’s not a challenge she shies away from. Styled by Anaita Shroff Adajania, there is a conversational push-and-pull between the flowing drape of her bespoke embroidered gold Sabyasachi sari juxtaposed sharply against the architectural lines of her armour-Esque gold metallic Schiaparelli couture bustier—a signature of Creative Director Daniel Roseberry’s reimagined vision for the Italian Maison—that gives a look almost kinetic energy.
“I feel blessed to be present and happy to have survived the struggles that came with being part of the effort to fight the pandemic,” said Natasha Poonawalla as she walked at the 2022 Met Gala red carpet, “And happy to be able to dedicate time to artistic pursuits, which enable us to communicate across borders through expression. Fashion to me is wearable art. Art in this sense is communication—it allows people from different cultures and times to communicate with each other via images, sounds and stories.” she further added.
