Dua Lipa looks like a total bombshell on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The Grammy winner made her grand arrival to the Met Gala tonight wearing a lacy all-black Marc Jacobs ensemble. The outfit included a corset under a lace layer, as well as a gathered see-through lace maxi skirt. She upped the ante with her choice of accessories, including coordinating mesh polka dot opera gloves, layers of bedazzled belly chains, a spiked diamond-encrusted necklace, and—most notably—a massive feathered cape that she carried thrown over one shoulder.

Lipa last attended the Met Gala in 2023, when she co-chaired the event alongside Penélope Cruz, Michaela Coel, and Roger Federer. At the time, she honored the “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” theme by wearing a 1992 white tweed ball gown by Chanel, originally worn on the runway by Claudia Schiffer.

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.”
