Get the Look: Met Gala Dresses 2022
It’s safe to say we’re still obsessing over last week’s Met Gala red carpet. Arguably the most prestigious night in fashion, The Gilded Age theme offered red carpet styles dripping with beading, sequins, and plenty of excess. And whether it took the form of a breezy neon pink gown a la Nicola Peltz Beckham or Marilyn Monroe’s infamous crystallized Happy Birthday Mr. President dress (donned by the one and only Kim K), the red carpet fashion did not disappoint.

Spring Silhouettes: Evening Dresses for Your Next RSVP
When shopping for an evening dress, there’s a few factors that determine the look you choose, depending on your personal style. The color. A lot (or a few) embellishments. The neckline. But what about the silhouette? The shape of a dress can dramatically enhance your appearance for a flattering finish. When you keep your body type in mind and what you’d like to highlight, it can make all the difference in how you feel inside and out! Scroll below for 4 of the most popular evening dress silhouettes and how to navigate between each.
Shop: Off the Shoulder Placement Embroidered Tulle Ballgown
A full skirt not only adds drama to your look, but puts more attention on your upper half; specifically your arms and shoulders with this enchanting look. If your style falls more into the “girlie girl” category, then a ballgown evening dress is perfect for you, whether it’s for prom, a gala, or fancy wedding.
Shop: Floral Embroidered Dress with Cap Sleeves
If a ballgown brings the drama, a column silhouette is just the opposite: fitted to the body without any additional flair. But don’t let the minimal silhouette fool you; a tighter fit gives curves the limelight, great for highlighting an hourglass shape. This floral embroidered evening dress is elegant, yet demure, gorgeous for that spring wedding on your calendar.
Shop: Metallic Knit Lace Up Back Dress
In between a ballgown and fitted look, an A-line evening dress is a classic choice that works for any formal event. This style is universally flattering on all body types, and puts the waist and upper body on display. Level up with a leg slit to elevate the flirt factor, like this on metallic lace-up dress.
Shop: Tank Illusion Plunge Mermaid Horsehair Dress
Chances are you’re familiar with a mermaid dress, which draws in at the knees similar to a mermaid’s tail. Whether you’re looking to enhance or create an hourglass shape, this look is your fashion ticket. Own any evening in this beautiful plunging style and let the compliments roll (because trust, they will).

What is a gala?
A gala is a formal evening party usually held in honor of a charity, auction, or other type of fundraiser. It may include dinner and another form of entertainment, like dancing.
Shop: Flower Glitter A-Line Dress with Lace Cleo Neckline
What’s the dress code?
A gala usually calls for a lavish dress code; white tie or black tie attire is typical of these events. A long evening dress, heels, and your fanciest jewelry apply here; so feel free to get super decked out! Need some ideas? All of the dresses featured here are perfect for a gala.
Shop: Deco Beaded Tiered Organza Ballgown
A glamorous ballgown or heavily beaded dress is elegant, yet appropriate. Try to stick to deep shades or neutral colors, like black, silver, navy and gold. And don’t shy away from embellishments; a pretty beaded or applique bodice with illusion add some interest for a picture-perfect ensemble.
As the last touches, pull hair into a chic updo or go for big curls for an old Hollywood glam finish. Don’t forget to grab a cute clutch before you dash out the door; browse some options here!
