The Met Gala sees the world’s A-listers gather in all their finery, wearing all the biggest names in fashion for a red carpet extravaganza. It’s all very glamorous—but while it does give us some magical Hollywood moments, it also deals out some fashion faux-pas, the occasional tumble and of course an endless supply of memes. 

While we were treated to some serious serves by the likes of Nicola Coughlan’s Met look and Blake Lively’s red carpet reveal, which helped her retain her title as best dressed once again, we were also treated to a lot of meme-worthy moments.

The Gala has an uncanny way of turning every Twitter user into a fashion critic, and sees the internet’s meme game reach its final form. If you ask us, the Met Gala just isn't the Met Gala if you’re not also scrolling through reaction Tweets—so without further ado, here are the best Met Gala 2022…

The best Met Gala 2022 memes

To celebrate the biggest fashion night of the year—here are all the best Met Gala 2022 memes!

Miranda Priestly, that is all. 

The Met Gala always sees the re-emergence of the most iconic face in fashion—Miranda Priestly. We all suddenly become possessed by her fashion prowess and despite sitting at home in our sweats, we feel free to judge whether the celebs met the theme or seriously missed.

Speaking of celebs missing the mark…

Celebrities just missing, full-stop

There are a few names that come to mind when you think of the Met’s most memorable fashion moments. The list includes the likes of Zendaya, Taylor Swift and Rihanna, all of whom were no-shows this year, must to fans' displeasure. 

Get someone who looks at you the way Ryan looks at Blake

Is Shawn Mendes joining the Multi-verse? 

Clearly, Shawn is a Dr. Strange stan as fans couldn’t help but point out the glaring resemblance—we can’t unsee it now. 

It’s a swarm of suits 

Sadly it is hard to spice up a tux… 

Paul Mescal’s special guest

The rumored newly engaged Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers were in attendance, along with that hitchhiker on Paul’s lip.

It’s safe to say Twitter is a fan of the Mescal-tach.

Ashley Tisdale just being an icon 

We had to give a special shout-out to this incredible tweet for Ashley Tisdale and the noughties fashion icon herself.

Send this woman an invite, at once!
