Just like in years past, the 2022 Met Gala had its own requirements when it came to the dress code. Guests were told to arrive in their best interpretations of "Gilded Glamour" and "white tie" — themes that would mesh nicely with the Costume Institute's newest exhibit, In America: An Anthology of Fashion. Thankfully, the night's best looks didn't disappoint, and bustled gowns, tiaras, and corsets were aplenty. However, no Met Gala would be complete without one red carpet mainstay: Sheer dresses.

Sexy and subtle, on-theme and um ... not so much, see-through designs were worn by plenty of celebrities as they made their way up those iconic Met steps. Ahead, we're rounding up all the sheer Met Gala 2022 looks you won't want to miss.
