Unmissable Looks from the Met Gala 2024

“Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking.” The infamous line so sarcastically delivered by Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly in the 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada is certainly apt for this year’s Met Gala.

This year’s theme for the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit centers around the exhibition, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” which boasts roughly 250 rare pieces spanning 400 years of fashion history from the institute’s permanent collection. The show includes pieces designed by Dior, Givenchy, and Schiaparelli, with some garments that are too fragile to be put on display, like a Charles Frederick Worth ball gown from 1877, being shown via video animation, light projection, AI, and CGI. The highly sensorial show is split into three categories from the natural world: land, sea, and sky.

Related to the exhibition, the theme for this evening’s attire, “The Garden of Time”, was inspired by J.G. Ballard’s titular short story from 1962. Many A-list celebrities, from Zendaya to Sam Smith, walked the carpet in classic silhouettes and, as expected, florals.

Even though it arguably bordered on the cliché, it also celebrated the classic. Below, are a few un-missable looks from this year’s Met Gala green carpet.
