The 2022 MET Gala started at 6 p.m. and already Twitter users are griping about the underwhelming fashions. Watch the Met Gala Live below.

The complaints are already pouring in online as celebrities such as co-host La La Anthony (top), Venus Williams, left, and Janelle Monáe (right) failed to impress the Twitter fashionistas.
La La was adorned in a cut-out gown by designer LaQuan Smith and David Yurman jewelry.
One Twitter user wrote:
“#LaLaAnthony in #LaQuanSmith just looks tacky. She’s another host who completely ignored the theme. And I still have no clue as to why she is a host. #MetGala2022.”
Normally there are a number of great looks. Not tonight. You cannot tell me La La Anthony isn't embarrassing in that outfit. It's horrendous.

La La is a TV personality and former DJ, best known as an MTV VJ on Total Request Live. She was asked whether her burgundy gown was on theme. She responded, “I think it’s on theme, but it still feels like me.”
Invited guests were asked to make a fashion statement in keeping with the theme “In America: An Anthology of Fashion: Gilded Glamour and White Tie.”
The term “Gilded Age” was coined by author Mark Twain in a novel in the 1800s. It means an embarrassment of riches and excessive materialism.
Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour was criticized for being “out of touch” with the times. As many Americans struggle with rising inflation, high rent, high food, and high gas, Wintour celebrates smug opulence.
Gilded glamour at a time of war, let them eat cake
