All the Stars Making Their Met Gala Debuts This Year

Following a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the Met Gala officially returned to New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 2. This year's red carpet dress code was white tie, and its theme was "Gilded Glamour," a nod to the corresponding exhibit "In America: An Anthology of Fashion."

The high-profile event brought out a bevy of stars, including Kaia Gerber, Camila Mendes, and hosts Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Fashion designer Tom Ford, Instagram's Adam Mosseri, and Anna Wintour once again served as honourary chairs, while Vanessa Hudgens and La La Anthony hosted the Met Gala's live stream.

But there were also several celebrities who attended the Met Gala for the very first time this year. After practicing her walk on the Met steps earlier in the day, Tommy Dorfman made her grand debut at the event in a black latex dress. Meanwhile, Austin Butler and Priscilla Presley attended their first Met Gala together. Butler is set to play Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann's upcoming biopic. Also joining the first-timers club were Chloe Kim, Jon Batiste, and Maude Apatow.

Ahead, see all the stars who've made their Met Gala debuts this year — so far!
