Met Gala 2022: Amy Schumer says 'Gilded Glamour' theme is 'ridiculous' as she dons black ensemble


Amy Schumer didn’t let the glamour of the Met Gala keep her from being funny Monday.

The comic, 40, had some choice words as she was interviewed by La La Anthony on a Vogue livestream as she made her entrance to the luxe event at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday.

When Anthony asked her what the term ‘Gilded Glamour’ – the theme of the event – meant to her, the Trainwreck actress responded, ‘Um, a vibrator – you know what I’m gonna say – it’s ridiculous.’

Schumer, who was a co-host at the Oscars in March, added, ‘I’m also here for the drinks.’

The Emmy-winning star, who shares son Gene, two, with her spouse, Chris Fischer, 42, donned a long-sleeved black double-breasted button-down gown by Gabriela Hearst, with three buttons on the right side and long tassels on each side as she made her way to the well-heeled gathering.

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo author joked, ‘Everyone’s always at home [wondering] what Amy Schumer’s going to be wearing.’

Schumer rounded out her ensemble with black sunglasses with strappy black heels and had her blonde locks combed to the side.

Monday’s event – whose co-chairs included Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Lin-Manuel Miranda – encouraged guests to ’embody the grandeur – and perhaps the dichotomy – of Gilded Age New York,’ an expression that originated by Mark Twain about the timeframe from 1870 to 1890, according to Vogue. 

Schumer has past been outspoken about her disdain for attending the annual event, which attracts the biggest names in show business and pop culture, saying on The Howard Stern Show in 2016, ‘I don’t like the farce … we’re dressed up like a bunch of f***ing a**holes.’

She added: ‘I left earlier than I should have been allowed, but it’s exciting, I got to meet Beyoncé and she was like, “Is this your first Met Gala?” And I was like, “It’s my last!”‘ (It wasn’t, as Schumer went on to attend the proceedings the following year.)

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, also known as the Met Gala, is considered by many as the ‘Super Bowl of celebrity red carpets.’

Fashion’s biggest night is traditionally held the first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute in New York City, with last year’s event moved to September due to the pandemic.

This year’s dress code is ‘Gilded Glamour’ to match the theme of ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ a continuation of last year’s ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.’

Tickets for the glitzy event can reportedly cost up to $35,000 apiece, while prices for a table range from $200,000 to $300,000, with last year’s bash raking in a whopping $16.4 million for the Met’s Costume Institute.

Regina King, power couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda are hosting this time, taking over from Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka.

This will be Miranda’s first time as a Met Gala co-chair (and guest) but he was originally intended to co-host the 2020 edition before the pandemic forced its cancellation.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is once again supervising the benefit as chairwoman, a position she’s held since 1995. Her fellow honorary co-chairs are designer Tom Ford and Instagram head Adam Mosseri.

As usual, the sartorial theme comes from the exhibit the gala launches: ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ which is the second of star curator Andrew Bolton’s two-part show exploring the roots of American style.

This exhibit will showcase some lesser-known designers, and also some top film directors, including Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese, host King, and last year’s Oscar winner Chloé Zhao.

Bolton said eight directors will create what he called ‘cinematic vignettes’ in the period rooms of the American Wing of the museum.

Similar to the September event, there will be 400 guests this year, lower than the pre-pandemic highs of 500-600 attendees.

The other four are Ford, the celebrated fashion designer who’s also an acclaimed film director, Janicza Bravo (Zola), Julie Dash (Daughters Of The Dust) and Autumn de Wilde (who directed the Jane Austen adaptation Emma. and is also a photographer).

The first part of the exhibition will remain on display in the rooms of the Anna Wintour Costume Center, along with the second part, until September 5.

More than half the pieces in the opening exhibition will be rotated out and garments from designers not yet featured will go on display.

The Met Gala is a huge money-maker for the museum, and provides the Costume Institute with its main source of funding.

KIM KARDASHIAN’S MET GALA LOOKS OVER THE YEARS

Kim Kardashian has made some fairly dramatic statements at the annual Met Gala in New York City over the years.

During her first year at the splashy, star-studded event she had on a tight floral dress that made the most of her very pregnant belly. Later she would be seen in a gold column dress, a silver suit that made her look like a robot, a see-through lace wonder and a dress that came in so tight she had to wear a waist trainer for weeks beforehand.

Last year the star, 41, covered her face with black cloth in a shocking move as she shared she had a full face of makeup on underneath for some reason.

Here is a look back at the eight looks The Kardashians star has tried out during the most important night in fashion.

2013  – GIVENCHY

Her first time at the Met Gala was for PUNK: Chaos to Couture in 2013. She was pregnant with North and wore a floral print dress from Givenchy

The California native said that she was not invited but rather was West’s plus one. Sadly, after the gala she ‘cried’ because she was so insecure about everything, she had said.

‘2103 Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. I was Kanye’s plus one & so nervous! I didn’t know anyone & I’m sure no one wanted me there lol. I did my own lipstick & the color is so off. I went home & cried after of insecurity but this is one of my fave looks now,’ said the TV vet.

2014  – LANVIN

In 2014, Kim had on a blue strapless Lanvin outfit as Kanye had on black. The theme was Charles James: Beyond Fashion.

She said it was the first time she had been invited on her own.

‘My dress was originally made of this amazing leather with metallic detailing,’ Kim said earlier. ‘But we decided at the last minute to redo it in blue satin.’

2015 – ROBERTO CAVALLI

She wore a very sheer and sexy lace and net gown by Roberto Cavalli for the May 2015 event. Her hair was slicked back and she modeled huge earrings.

And the star posed with husband Kanye West who went with a black suit and boots.

The theme was celebrating China: Through the Looking Glass.

2016 – BALMAIN

Kardashian tried out silver at the Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology in 2016.  

She wore Balmain, a shimmery silver dress that looked like a futuristic gown with a slit up the side. Husband Kanye West was in the same designer.

She said: ‘2016 Olivier Rousteing for Balmain. I was back to insecure this year because I hadn’t lost all of my baby weight. Big mistake to bleach the brows but Kanye looked so good this year with those blue eyes! It was super controversial that he wore denim.’

Earlier she had noted: ‘I thought Balmain was the perfect choice for me and Kanye, especially. I think Kanye’s look is a little bit more downplayed with the denim mixed with all the Balmain bling.’

2017 – VIVIENNE WESTWOOD

This one in 2017 was celebrating the opening of Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between. 

The Selfish author had on a white Vivienne Westwood off-the-shoulder dress with no jewelry and strappy heels.

 In the bus ride to the event she had to stand up so the dress would not wrinkle and she said she was already sweating and had to use the bathroom because she was so nervous.

The daughter of Kris Jenner said, ‘2017 Vivienne Westwood. This was my first year going solo. I was so nervous to go by myself I almost threw up on the way & I had to pee every second.. I was FaceTiming my sisters to meet up at the top of the stairs. Vivienne made me this beautiful dress from her archive.’

2018 – VERSACE

Kim Kardashian attends the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination Costume Institute Gala in 2018.

She said this gold mesh Versace dress fit her like a ‘glove.’

Kardashian added, ‘I knew exactly what I wanted and was most confident this year. 90’s, chainmail, sexy and simple.’

 2019 – THIERRY MUGLER

Kardashian was in a wet look for Camp: Notes on Fashion in 2019.

She had to wear a waist trainer to get her midsection as small as possible to pull off this Thierry Mugler dress.

The look was supposed to be ‘wet’ which is why she had crystals that looked like raindrops coming off of her. Her hair also looked wet as she had oiled skin.

2021 – BALENCIAGA

Kim shocked fans when she wore a head to toe black look that covered her famous face.

Later the red carpet fixture said that she was fully made up under that face sock which seemed like a lot of effort for no payoff.

Turns out, it was not her favorite move. 

‘I fought against it. I was like, I don’t know how I could wear the mask. Why would I want to cover my face?’ she told Vogue this year.

‘But Demna [Gvasalia, Balenciaga’s creative director] and the team were like, “This is a costume gala. This is not a Vanity Fair party where everyone looks beautiful. There’s a theme and you have to wear the mask. That is the look.”‘
