If you’re interested in joining the fun, read on to learn more about the theme and guest list.

What is the theme of the Met Gala in 2024?

The Met Gala’s dress code is based on the theme “Garden of Time.” This includes florals and archival pieces.

This year’s theme is obscure and a bit confusing. While some guests will be up to the task with impressive archival pieces and high-concept works, others may choose to ignore it completely out of fear that they will misinterpret it.

Who will attend the Met Gala in 2024?

There is no official guest list, but expect to see the co-chairs of this year, Bad Bunny and Chris Hemsworth as well as Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya, and Anna Wintour on the red carpet. Jonathan Anderson, Loewe’s creative director, and TikTok CEO Shou zi Chew, TikTok’s CEO, will be there as honorary chairmen.

Livestreams of the Met Gala are also available on Vogue, Derek Blasberg, and Chloe Fineman’s social media channels. Live From E! is also available. Online: Met Gala on Peacock and E! Online, NBC News, or the YouTube channel for E! News, E! Insider, E! Today, Access Hollywood and Entertainment.

Cardi B in Giambattista Valli

The rapper arrived on the red carpet last, but the layered dress she wore was well worth the wait. It earned the Cut Style team a collective gasp.

Lana Del Rey wearing custom Alexander McQueen

Finally! Finally! This look was made great by the tree branches that poked out from the tulle canopy. They could have been a safety risk on the red carpet.

Gigi Hadid in Thom Browne

This is our favorite look of the evening. This look is everything you want a Met Gala to be: stylish, on-theme, striking on the carpet, but flattering, true to the style and the personality of the celebrity. Bravo, Gigi! Bravo, Thom Browne

Greta Lee in Loewe

Loewe’s sheer floral embellished dress is our favorite style risk-taker.

Jennifer Lopez in custom Schiaparelli haute couture

This is J.Lo’s best look: sexy and glamorous with a lot of rhinestones. Thanks to her structured shoulders and soft glamour, she looks more fashionable than in years past.

Doja Cat in Vetements

The singer, who arrived at the Mark Hotel in a plastic bag today, changed into a Vetements wet Tshirt dress for the red carpet. The glitter tears, thick eyeliner and bleach-blonde hair made her look even more unconventional.

Taylor Russell in Loewe

Jonathan Anderson’s newest muse, fashion’s “It” Girl made her Met Gala debut wearing a Loewe outfit that featured a 3-D-molded bodice with a draped white skirt. Anderson told Vogue that when they work together, it is always a creative dialogue. “She’s an amazing collaborator and very special friend.”

Naomi Campbell has worn the perfect shade of baby blue tonight. What are the other highlights? Her unexpected side part and the shimmering fringe.

Gwendoline Christie in custom Maison Margiela

Emma Chamberlain in custom Jean Paul Gaultier

This year was no different. The YouTuber, who is also a media personality, always brings it on the red carpet. Vogue claims that her customized Gaultier outfit is a throwback to references made by the French fashion house. This includes a mocha colored lace corset worn at the spring 2003 couture show. The messy brown eyeshadow, paired with a matching lip color, pulls the look together.

Zendaya in Maison Margiela couture

The Challengers actress wore a John Galliano sculptural gown with feather fascinators and makeup inspired by Gothic style. She looked amazing (of course), and the headpiece gave her a Carrie Bradshaw vibe.

Phew! There’s so much to unpack and so little time!

Kieran Culkin

The quirky king was very well-suited in a pink loafer and a suit with splatter paint.

Jessica Serfaty Michel

The actress took the theme of the garden very literally, with a cape embroidered with flowers (and the neon colors don’t help this situation).

La La Anthony in Alexander McQueen

The Alexander McQueen mermaid dress looked better on the runway where it wasn’t as tight and without the black lace. There’s too much going on.

Jordan Roth in custom Valentino

It is definitely weird. We can certainly appreciate the campiness, but it’s also a bit odd.

Lea Michele in Rodarte

This look reads a bit cheap, don’t you think? Between the tulle and the flowers that were placed randomly, I dare say.

Rita Ora Marni

This look does not meet the Met Gala’s requirements for a flawlessly executed nude illusion. The dress is not flowing well and the color of the bodysuit seems off.

Nicki Minaj in Marni

The exhibition features a lot of floral dresses with structural elements, like this Marni dress. We love the vibrant colors and the way Nicki styled this version.

Amelia Gray Undercover

After making waves during Paris Fashion Week, many people were expecting to see this glowing-in-the dark dress on the Met Gala’s red carpet. This mesmerizing design also appears in the exhibit and perfectly represents the theme of sleeping beauty.

Tyla in Balmain

Someone did their homework today! This dress is not only tailored to perfection but also cleverly interprets the theme, with its hourglass-shaped bag and the texture of the dress.

Bad Bunny Custom Maison Margiela

The Cut group chat gave this a unanimous yes the moment Benito walked the red carpet. It only improved after we had time to digest the material. This is probably inspired by Count Axel from the short story “Garden of Time”, which inspired this year’s theme.

Ayo Edebiri in Loewe

Ayo was among the best dressed celebrities during the 2023-24 award season. It’s therefore no surprise that she had a successful Met Gala début. The dress is whimsical and playful. It fits the theme.
