Jennie Kim is taking the 2024 Met Gala by storm.

The Blackpink member made a dazzling entrance on the steps of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Nodding to this year's “Garden of Time” dress code, the singer took on a unique interpretation by wearing a fluid cobalt blue minidress.

The custom-made Alaïa piece features an intricately draped hemline, an asymmetrical abdominal cutout, and a one-sleeve shoulder detail that extended into a floor-length train. For some added oomph, she accessorized the look with a gold belly chain and pearl drop earrings.

Tonight marks Jennie's second-ever appearance at the Met Gala, having first attended in 2023. At the time, she wore a vintage Chanel dress plucked from the fashion house's Fall/Winter 1990 collection: a strapless white minidress with a scalloped neckline and a pleated hem. Coordinating with a black ribbon tied around the bustier, she finished the look off with black gloves, opaque black tights, and black platform heels.

This year's dress code is “The Garden of Time,” a concept inspired by J.G. Ballard's 1962 short story of the same name. In essence, the theme examines the intrinsic connection between time and natural beauty—leaving the door wide open for attendees to interpret the dress code as they please.

“The Garden of Time” also complements the Costume Institute's spring exhibition, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” which will include about “250 objects spanning four centuries” from the Institute's vast collection, all of them “visually united by iconography related to nature, which will serve as a metaphor for the fragility and ephemerality of fashion,” according to a press release. The exhibition will feature a number of modern technologies in its display, too, “from cutting-edge tools, artificial intelligence, and computer-generated imagery to traditional formats of x-rays, video animation, light projection, and soundscapes.”
