Although it feels like it was just yesterday that the stars cruised up the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a night of fashionable frivolity (231 days to be exact) the *official* first Monday in May is here and the 2022 Met Gala is well underway. This year’s theme is In America: An Anthology of Fashion, a part two if you will to 2021’s In America: A Lexicon of Fashion. And while many people felt that more than a handful of celebrities missed the mark on last year’s red carpet, the Gilded Glamour dress code for 2022 is much easier vibe to interpret, with sparkles and hair jewelry among the night’s top fashion and beauty trends.

More is more is more was the universally agreed upon approach to the hair looks in particular on May 2, with Met Gala veterans and newbies alike testing the limits of gilded hair accessories. From La La Anthony’s bedazzled fan hat to Emma Chamberlain’s diamond-encrusted tiara, the lines between hair jewelry and hair accessory were very pleasingly blurred. Even the queen of the night herself, Anna Wintour, got in on the sparkling topper trend — that’s when you know it’s seriously chic.

Scroll on for some of the most dazzling hair jewelry moments from the 2022 Met Gala red carpet.
