Today’s entertainment reporter Brooke Boney suffers a gaffe as she becomes tongue-tied while talking about the theme of 2022 Met Gala
Today show’s entertainment reporter Brooke Boney suffered an unfortunate gaffe ahead of Monday’s Met Gala in New York City.
Boney, 34, was presenting a segment on the celebrity arrivals when she suddenly became tongue-tied while discussing the theme of this year’s event.
The 2022 Met Gala’s theme is ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion’, or ‘Gilded Glamour’, paying homage to America’s prosperous period from 1870 to 1890.
Whoops! Today’s entertainment reporter Brooke Boney suffered a gaffe on Tuesday when she became tongue-tied while talking about the theme of 2022 Met Gala
‘Guys, it is only half an hour away. The Met Gala! I am very, very excited about this,’ she began her segment.
‘It is considered the Oscars for the fashion world, and celebrities are just starting to arrive in New York for the 2022 Met Gala,’ she added, prompting host Karl Stefanovic to ask: ‘What’s the theme?’
‘Ahh… it is…”In…”,’ Boney stammered awkwardly.
All that glitters: This year’s theme, Gilded Glamour, highlights a period of flashy materialism in 1870s America associated with the prominent New York high society scene. (Pictured: Blake Lively arriving at the Met Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC on Monday)
Fortunately, co-host Allison Langdon swooped in to save the day, saying: ‘It’s 1870s. Gilded Glamour.’
‘So, Queen Marie Antoinette. That sort of thing?’ Stefanovic asked.
‘Yes, exactly,’ Brooke responded, despite the fact Marie Antoinette ruled France in the late 1700s, a century before the Met Gala theme’s time period.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, also known as the Met Gala, is considered by many to be the ‘Super Bowl of celebrity red carpets’.
