About The 2024 Met Gala

The ball’s theme will “reactivate the sensory capacities of masterworks in the Museum’s collection through first-hand research, conservation analysis, and diverse technologies—from cutting-edge tools, artificial intelligence, and computer-generated imagery to traditional formats of x-rays, video animation, light projection, and soundscapes.”

Hundreds of garments and accessories spanning four centuries will be presented by the stars, “visually united by iconography related to nature, which will serve as a metaphor for the fragility and ephemerality of fashion and a vehicle to examine the cyclical themes of rebirth and renewal.” The dress code for the guests is “The Garden of Time.” It is inspired by a short story of the same title written by J.G. Ballard in 1962.

The 2024 Met Gala hosts are Gwendolyn Christie and Ashley Graham. Meanwhile, this year’s co-chairs are Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, and Chris Hemsworth. They follow last year’s star-studded hosts: Penélope Cruz, Michaela Coel, Roger Federer, Dua Lipa, and Vogue’s Anna Wintour. Wintour has run the Met Gala since 1995.

The Gala is a highly exclusive fundraising benefit that serves as an opening celebration for the Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Following the event, the exhibition runs for several months. The 2024 Met Gala takes place on Monday, May 6, at 6 p.m. ET in New York City at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. It will be livestreamed here.

Met Gala Flops

There are many years in which attendees at the Met Gala have notably mocked the ball’s themes and showed up in elaborate costumes or didn’t respect the aged garments. Most famously, when Kim Kardashian wore Marilyn Monroe’s dress at the 2022 Met, she was met with tons of backlash for destroying the garment.

Jared Leto is another frequent attendee of the Met, arriving in silly costumes. So far, he has shown up as a giant cat mascot, carrying his decapitated head, and showing up with a twin.
