VANITY FAIR: Instagram’s Met Gala 2022 table may have been the place to be during fashion’s biggest night.

As the Met Gala returned on Monday night with the Costume Institute’s exhibition and gala theme, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” Instagram — the official sponsor of the Met Gala and the Institute’s two-part exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art — creatively honored the occasion with a celebratory “class photo” featuring their star-studded table.

With an influential group of actors, designers, entertainers, models, musicians, and more, Instagram exclusively revealed their Met Gala 2022 table to Vanity Fair. This year’s guests included SZA, Kris Jenner, Anderson Paak, Chloe Bailey, Sebastian Stan, Nicola Coughlan, Sabrina Carpenter, Jack Harlow, Chloe Kim, Johnny Suh, Gunna, Jenny Ortega, designers Peter Do, Edvin Thompson and Christopher John Rodgers, Schiaparelli creative director Daniel Roseberry, and TikTok star Avanni Greg.

The 2022 photo was captured by Brooklyn-raised photographer Juan Veloz and produced by Obsidianworks, a Black-owned and led marketing agency co-founded by actor and producer Michael B. Jordan.

In addition to the fun Instagram brought to this year’s Met Gala, the social media platform also livened up the carpet with the return of their annual Meme Correspondent. Lola Tash and Nicole Argiris, the content creators behind the popular account My Therapist Says took over the meme duties from last year’s correspondent, Saint Hoax.

Following the star-studded event, Instagram will host their first-ever Met Gala after party featuring a special performance from one of this year’s guests.
