Met Gala 2024

Ladies and Gentleman! It’s time to talk about the fashion event of the year that’s just wrapped up! The Met Gala 2024 brought all the glitz and glam to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6th. This time, the spotlight was on the exhibition called “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” which explored how technology could breathe new life into delicate old garments.

Celebrities graced the museum’s iconic steps, dressed to impress in outfits inspired by the theme “The Garden of Time.” Throughout the night, we got to see all the stunning looks from the Met Gala 2024, each one telling its own unique story. The theme drew inspiration from J.G. Ballard’s tale, where a count slows down time by picking roses from his garden to ward off an approaching mob. This theme perfectly matched the exhibit’s blend of old-world charm and modern innovation, promising a red carpet adorned with everything from traditional florals to cutting-edge fashion.

With an iconic lineup of co-chairs—Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Tyla, Alia Bhatt and many more to be—plus countless other celebrities. Read on for all the must-see fashion moments from the 2024 Met Gala, from stunning new designs to iconic fashion choices of the best dressed celebrity.
