Met Gala 2024: The best Met Gala fashions, arrivals, and biggest surprises

It’s fashion’s biggest night! The 2024 Met Gala red carpet is officially underway at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This year’s exhibit, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” examines how technology can breathe new life into garments that are too old and fragile to be worn again.

Tonight, guests will ascend the museum’s famed steps wearing outfits that nod to the event’s “The Garden of Time” dress code, and you can see all of the Met Gala 2024 looks right here as the night unfolds. The night’s sartorial theme gets its name from a J.G. Ballard story about a count who—to stave off an angry mob nearing his castle—cuts a rose from his garden to slow down time until there are no flowers remaining. With the story’s dystopian undertones in tandem with the exhibit’s emphasis on old and new, we can expect a red carpet filled with everything from florals to techno-inspired fashion—and maybe even a Sleeping Beauty reference or two.

The gala, which fundraises for the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute, is known for having a very secretive guest list. But while the attendees’ names are kept tightly under wraps, we do know of a few people who will grace the carpet in their garden party finery: Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Lopez, and Zendaya, who are serving as co-chairs alongside Vogue’s Anna Wintour. The rest of the esteemed attendees—which includes the world’s top singers, actors, models, athletes, and artists—will reveal themselves in due time.
