The stars have begun their grand arrivals at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, marking the official kickoff of the 2022 Met Gala.

Vanessa Hudgens and La La Anthony, Vogue’s livestream hosts, were among the event’s early arrivals. Hudgens wore a sheer black Moschino gown paired with Jimmy Cho shoes, while Anthony sparkled in a reddish-brown satin cut-out dress designed by LaQuan Smith.

Blake Lively shimmered onto the Met Gala’s red carpet in a metallic gown with a massive bow that flowed into a train. Lively's dress transformed on the carpet, losing the bow and gaining a new color. Lively was accompanied by her tuxedo-wearing husband and gala co-host, Ryan Reynolds.
