The couple also coordinated their footwear, ensuring a matching moment. Kardashian was classically outfitted in a pair of black pumps, with a pointed toe and thin stiletto heels. Barker opted for an equally sharp pair of Thom Browne oxfords, with a monochromatic black palette in glossy patent leather.

The theme for the 2022 Met Gala is “In America: An Anthology of Fashion”, exploring the foundations of American fashion – specifically, identifiers of American style and individual designers. The exhibit will include 100 garments by independent designers and couturiers from the 1800s to the mid-1900s in the period rooms of the museum’s American Wing. There will also be “freeze frames” of film thumbnails in each room, showcasing the aesthetics of eight different directors: Janicza Bravo, Sofia Coppola, Julie Dash, Tom Ford, Regina King, Martin Scorsese, Autumn de Wilde and Chloé Zhao. Supported by Instagram and Condé Nast, the event raises funds for future exhibits and enhancements to the Costume Institute. The exhibition will be open to the public from 7 May and – together with part 1, which opened last september — closing on September 5, 2022.
