On May 6, co-chairs Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya, and Anna Wintour will awaken Sleeping Beauties at the Met Gala 2024

It’s fashion’s biggest night. As the dawn of May approaches, enthusiasts worldwide await with bated breath for the grand Met Gala. Last November, the institute reveals “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” as this year’s theme, exploring the ethereal space of dormant garments and overlooked treasures. Under the distinguished co-chairmanship of Anna Wintour and stars such as Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Lopez, and Zendaya, the Met Gala 2024 promises an evening of unparalleled elegance and philanthropic endeavor. The dress code draws inspiration from JG Ballard’s evocative short story, “The Garden of Time,” attendees are beckoned into a world where utopian leisure converges with the harsh realities of modernity, a dichotomy echoed in the curated selection of attire on display.

From May 10 to September 2, 2024, guests will have access to a series of self-contained galleries. Each gallery will focus on a specific theme inspired by the natural world. Through the use of nature as a cohesive visual metaphor, the exhibition will explore recurring motifs of rebirth and renewal, reflecting the transient nature of fashion.

The metamorphosis of fashion from relic to revered artifact takes center stage as over 250 meticulously curated pieces from the Costume Institute’s extensive collection are unveiled to the public eye. From the delicate intricacies of 17th-century Elizabethan-era bodices to the avant-garde creations of contemporary visionaries like Phillip Lim and Stella McCartney, the exhibition outmatches temporal boundaries, offering a journey through the history of style.

Organized into themed galleries inspired by the elemental forces of Land, Sea, and Sky, the exhibition immerses visitors in a sensory experience unlike any other. Each ensemble, carefully selected to symbolize the fleeting nature of fashion, serves as a testament to the enduring nature of creative expression.

Inside these galleries, historical fashion pieces will be displayed alongside their contemporary counterparts, creating immersive environments designed to engage visitors’ senses of sight, smell, touch, and hearing. Through innovative and immersive experiences, the exhibition seeks to revitalize these historic objects, evoking the sensory interactions they once had with the human body. The aim is to provide a dynamic and enriching experience that offers visitors a fresh perspective on the evolution of fashion.

Yet, it is not merely the garments themselves that captivate the imagination but the stories they whisper, the lives they once adorned, and the histories they encapsulate. As guests traverse the hallowed halls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, they are invited to ponder the power of fashion and its enduring legacy through ideas of sustainability.

Of course, no discussion of the Met Gala would be complete without mention of the red carpet, where celebrity attendees flourish and delight with their interpretations of the evening’s theme. From historical reimaginings to avant-garde experimentation with technology, the possibilities are as limitless as the creative spirit itself.


In essence, the Met Gala 2024 exceeds the confines of a mere fashion event, occurring as a celebration of art, culture, and the human imagination. The theme allows us to question the notions of rediscovery and renewal, often being prodded and reminded of the impact of fashion on our collective consciousness, and the timeless beauty that lies within, sleeping or awake.
