Know About The Met Gala 2024: Monday night was the 2024 Met Gala, the most talked-about event in the fashion industry, which celebrated the Costume Institute’s spring exhibition at the Met. For this year’s event, the topic is “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” and it centers on fifty important pieces from history that are too fragile to be worn again. Modern purchases by designers such as Stella McCartney and Conner Ives lay with artifacts from the Elizabethan era of the English crown of the seventeenth century in this exhibition. Famous people search through old photo albums to find inspiration for their vintage gala outfits.

Monday, May 6, 2024, was the day of the Met Gala in New York City. As a result of the event’s cancelation in 2020 and its subsequent rescheduling to September in 2021 owing to the pandemic, the first Monday in May was skipped in both years.

Under the premise of “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” around fifty delicate and historically important artifacts from the Costume Institute’s collection get the spotlight this year. These works, titled “Sleeping Beauties,” have been meticulously curated and refined using state-of-the-art technology and methods, such as video animation, light projection, soundscaping, Pepper’s ghost illusion, and more. The sensory experience of the exhibition’s displays is the goal of the fashion show.

Honorary chairs Jonathan Anderson of Loewe Creative and TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew will be joining Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Hemsworth, and Bad Bunny as co-chairs of the 2024 Met Gala. Zendaya stood out for her breathtaking ensembles, which included a one-of-a-kind Maison Margiela design and a vintage Givenchy show ensemble.

The 2024 Met Gala followed the theme of “The Garden in Time,” a short tale by J.G. Ballard. The Countess and Count Axel find themselves in a picturesque garden in Ballard’s story, which represents the transience of beauty and the inevitability of deterioration, as they are threatened by an invading mob. A variety of interpretations were encouraged for the theme, including references to nature, floral patterns, and avant-garde styles influenced by fairy tales.

Exclusively on Vogue’s digital platforms, TikTok, and YouTube, the Met Gala livestream was streamed.

The Met Gala, which Anna Wintour has been at the helm of since 1995, is a fundraiser for the Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. It takes place at the same time that the annual fashion exhibition opens.

“Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” was the theme of the 2023 Met Gala, which honored the legendary designer’s work, and “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” was the theme of the 2022 Gala, which celebrated diversity and inclusion in American fashion.

Guests can peruse the exhibition before settling down to supper at the event, which typically attracts about 600 people. Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, and Billie Eilish are among the notable attendees from the past.

Some of the most memorable moments in fashion have happened during the Met Gala, such as Lady Gaga’s Brandon Maxwell entrance in 2019 and Rihanna’s Guo Pei couture cape in 2015.
