Lil Nas X never looks boring when he steps onto a red carpet. And his outfit for the 2024 Met Gala stayed true to the brand.

The rapper once again mounted the steps of New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in an outfit that showed off his inimitable sense of style. He suited up in a white set by Luar, which featured asymmetrical panels of glittering silver sequined fabric, as well as curved geometric lines of buttons.

This is far from the musician's first time making waves at the Met Gala. Last year, he honored the Karl Lagerfeld-dedicated dress code by transforming into a metallic silver cat (a nod to the late fashion designer's beloved pet cat, Choupette). The unexpected look involved covering the entirety of his body in silver paint and jewels, as well as tons of Swarovski crystals and pearls.

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.”
