What Is the Theme This Year?

The theme of this year’s Met Gala is “The Garden of Time” which was inspired by the Costume Institute’s new exhibit, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.” The 2024 theme was inspired by JG Ballard’s 1962 short story, The Garden of Time, which is often interpreted as a metaphor for human history and the never-ending cycle of creation and destruction.

We believe Met Gala guests will draw from its floral and botanical references.

Who Will Be Attending?

Along with this year’s co-chairs Zendaya, Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, and Jennifer Lopez, it’s been confirmed that Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Blake Lively, and Kylie Jenner will attend, per Capital FM.

Gwendoline Christie, LaLa Anthony, and Ashley Graham will be some of the hosts this year too.
