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 Billie Eilish, Lori Harvey, Normani, Hillary Clinton, Gigi Hadid, Sophie Turner, Joe Jonas, 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 honorary chairs, while Vanessa Hudgens and La La Anthony hosted the Met Gala's live stream. Regina King was also a cohost, but she skipped the event likely due to the recent death of her 26-year-old son Ian Alexander Jr.

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 rubber 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 HoYeon, Phoebe Dynevor, Michelle Yeoh, Kieran Culkin, Chloe Kim, Jon Batiste, Maude Apatow, Simone Ashley, and Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian.

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