NEW YORK — This year, the Met Gala returned to its regular date – the first Monday in May – after a pandemic-postponed 2021 gala in September.
The annual fundraiser for the Met's Costume Institute, famous for its exclusive guest list and daring red carpet looks, had a theme of "gilded glamour" this year. As always, the theme was up to attendees' interpretation.
One of Austin's most famous residents, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, made his way down the carpet with his mother, supermodel Maye Musk, as his date.
And the "girl from Golden" herself, singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves, was also in attendance, channeling old-school glamour.
Other Texas-born or raised stars in attendance included:
Emma Stone, who reportedly just bought a home in Austin, also attended the event.
