Met Gala 2024: What We Know So Far

Met Gala Theme

The highly-anticipated 2024 Met Gala, set for the first Monday in May, will showcase the “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” exhibition. According to VOGUE, it will highlight 250 rare items from the Costume Institute’s collection. The event’s theme, “The Garden of Time,” will be interpreted in various ways, with a focus on nature and fashion’s emotional depth.

The exhibition, curated by Andrew Bolton, features three main zones inspired by nature: Land, Sea, and Sky. Bolton describes it as “an ode to nature and the emotional poetics of fashion.” Fragile pieces like an 1877 Charles Frederick Worth ball gown will be displayed using modern technology like video animation and CGI, as the article further outlines.

Met Gala 2024 Hosts

The hosts for the 2024 Met Gala reportedly include Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, and Chris Hemsworth.

The dress code, “The Garden of Time,” is seemingly inspired by J.G. Ballard’s short story, as also noted here. As a result, and outlined in the article, we may likely see details such as floral and botanical motifs on the Met Gala carpet this year.

The Met Gala is a fundraising event for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, raising substantial amounts yearly. It’s known for its secrecy, with a no-phone policy for guests, though exclusive glimpses inside have been shared by celebrities like Kendall Jenner.

The event typically includes a high-profile performer and allows guests to explore the exhibition before a dinner gathering. It’s held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, usually on the first Monday in May.

Met Gala 2024 Guestlist

The guest list is most often kept secret but will include high-profile names and accompanying designers. Around 450 attendees are welcomed each year.

The 2024 Met Gala promises a blend of history, nature-inspired fashion, and star-studded moments, continuing its tradition as a pinnacle event in the fashion world.
