One more Met Gala to add to the collection today. With the theme “Garden of Time” and the title “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” celebrities, designers, and stylists alike occupied the Upper East Side for the 2024 Met Gala. The greatest red carpet trends (apart from lace, corsets, and leather) included birds, loads of florals, and tributes to John Galliano. Stylists combed into the archives to find looks inspired by gardens for their themes. The Loewe crew, which included Taylor Russell, Greta Lee, and Josh O’Connor, was astonished, while Tyla ruled the red carpet in Balmain. Zendaya debuted two looks. Loewe? It’s all explained here.

Who walked the red carpet at the 2024 Met Gala?
Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, and Zendaya appeared first as hosts. And thank God, Zendaya gave us two Met Gala moments when we really needed one! When Tyla arrived wearing a “sand” outfit, she essentially walked the red carpet. Ayo Edeberi, Lauren Sanchez, Taylor Russell, Omar Apollo, Mike Faist, Gracie Abrams, Nicholas Galitzine, Rachel Sennott, and Angel Reese were among the many notable first-timers in attendance. Additionally, Shou Chew, the CEO of TikTok, and Jonathan Anderson of Loewe were honorary chairs. Surprisingly, though, none of the major TikTokers made their red carpet appearance.

Who did you think looked the best at the Met Gala?
We adored Gwendoline Christie in a bespoke Maison Margiela, Emma Chamberlain in a Jean Paul Gaultier, Zendaya in a John Galliano, Jennifer Lopez in a custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture, and Gigi Hadid in a Thom Browne. See our most creative, bizarre, and terrible looks here.

What was the theme again?
The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art chose a slightly less contentious option following last year’s tribute to Karl Lagerfeld. “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” an exhibition organized by the Costume Institute, focuses on forgotten and delicate clothing. Current pieces by designers Phillip Lim and Stella McCartney are on display, along with archival designs from fashion icons like Elsa Schiaparelli, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, and Haut de Givenchy, to mention a few. Regarding the dress code (yes, they do differ), it focused on “The Garden of Time” and offered participants the option to play with the garden aspect or give a reference to the past with more vintage designs and artifacts.

Did Rihanna Show Up?
We lost out on Rihanna when she first announced she would be there, but a source later revealed to People that she is sick. Although disappointing, the event concluded on schedule.

The Met Gala 2024 unfolded on May 6, with attendees bedecked in enchanting ensembles, perfectly aligning with the event’s theme, “A Garden in Time,” inspired by the exhibit “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.” Leading the charge were luminaries such as Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya, Chris Hemsworth, and Bad Bunny, who graced the iconic steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in support of the museum’s Costume Institute. As guests traversed the red carpet, anticipation mounted over who would defy conventions and whose attire would etch itself into the annals of Met Gala history.
