Our Favorite DIY Met Gala-Inspired Looks From TikTok!

05-18-2022 by Annel Then



The Met gala is an event that happens annually where celebrities and artists wear beautiful garments designed by known designers and fashion houses who follow a theme. This year's Met Gala theme was "Gilded Glamour", referring to a period in American history from the 1870s to 1890s where men and women alike never left the house without looking like a million bucks. Gilded glamour stems from using wealth and flashy attire to hide the social unrest and turmoil of the time. Women would wear jewel-toned gowns that were made out of various types of fabric ranging from satin, silk, and velvet. It was a period of growth and prosperity and was one of the enlightenment periods of the time where many inventions were created, such as the telephone! As the 2022 Met Gala wrapped up this year, many headed to TikTok to show off their own renditions of their favorite Met Gala Gilded Age creations, and they do not disappoint!
