It’s the most exciting time of the year for armchair fashion critics everywhere.

Tonight was the 2024 Met Gala, and the annual event calls for Hollywood’s biggest celebrities to dole out their most creative red-carpet outfits—all of which are up for meme-ing by eager gala-watchers on Twitter (erm, I mean X).

With this year's ambiguous dress code, “The Garden of Time,” both attendees and fans will surely have plenty of things to say about the outfits gracing the famed steps of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Inspired by J.G. Ballard's 1962 short story of the same name, “The Garden of Time” explores the intrinsic connection between time and natural beauty. It 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.”

In other words, florals for spring, anyone?
