As usual, this year's Met Gala reeled in a fully packed house of A-Listers gracing the infamous carpeted steps, showcasing their best looks in line with the Gala's yearly theme. This year the theme was set as "Gilded Glamour." Stars pulled inspiration from the 19th century Gilded Age (1870-1900) and interpreted the theme in their own way alongside some of the fashion industry's top designers and brands.
A handful of Filipinos were at the exclusive event and graced the carpet in New York City. Vanessa Hudgens led the pack with an early entrance as she was one of the red carpet hosts for Vogue this year. She came in and stunned the carpet wearing Moschino. Erin Lim was also on hosting duties with E! Entertainment getting us all the behind-the-scenes looks of the madness of the event that is the coined the fashion Super Bowl.
Check out the list and looks from the Filipinos representing at this year's Met Gala below.

And just to throw things back a bit, let's all not forget the 2021 Met Gala, where Saweetie debuted in this Christian Cowan dress embedded with 10 million crystals with a cape that represented the colors from the Filipino and Black American Heritage flags.
