Couple get engaged at the Met Gala
Entertainment Tonight

The most glamorous night in the showbiz diary arrived yesterday, with some of the biggest stars on the planet gathering for the Met Gala 2022.

The glitzy event takes place on the first Monday in May to raise money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute - and to give celebs an excuse to get dressed up, of course.

There’s always a theme and this year guests were asked to dress in the style of ‘gilded glamour’, based on the opulent years in New York City between 1870 and 1890.

There’s always plenty of talking points, too, and things were no different last night.
