Met Gala 2022: Nicola Coughlan channels her Bridgerton character

by Press room

Nicola Coughlan channeled her Bridgerton character in a corset-style dress as she attended the star-studded Met Gala 2022 in New York on Monday night. 

The Irish actress, 35, wowed in a pink and black puffy gown that mirrored the regency style from the hit Netflix show in which she stars as Penelope. 

She also sported longer blonde locks for the event after normally rocking a choppy blonde bob.

The incredible dress featured pretty feather detailing and was adorned with gem stones to add a glamorous feel.

She showed off her ample assets in the bustier and accessorised with silver dangly earrings and statement rings and bracelets.

Nicola wore her newly-long light tresses in a sleek straight style and opted for a glamorous makeup look complete with a smoky eye, which was created by beauty pro Neil Young for Pat McGrath Labs – a brand for which the actress serves as a spokesmodel.

In fact, it wasn’t just Nicola’s ensemble that paid tribute to Bridgerton – her beauty look did as well. 

The actress sported several products from the Pat McGrath Labs x Bridgerton collaboration, including the Divine Blush Trio and the Diamond of the First Water Palette. 

Meanwhile on her complexion, Neil used the much-loved combination of Skin Fetish: Sublime Perfection Primer, Foundation, Concealer, and Setting Powder, having first prepped the star’s complexion with the newly-launched Divine Skin: Rose 001 The Essence.

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 was ‘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 hosted this time, taking over from Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka. 

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour once again supervised 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.

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

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.

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).

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

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.
