MET GALA 2024: A COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE EVENT

As the highly anticipated Met Gala 2024 approaches, set to take place on May 6 at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, also known as the Costume Institute Gala.

MET GALA 2024: The Garden of Time

The theme of the Met Gala 2024 will be “The Garden of Time,” inspired by Ballard’s tale, and it will be the dress code all invited celebrities must adhere to.

The theme of the exhibition curated by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York this year promises to captivate audiences with its enchanting title, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.” This meticulously crafted showcase will highlight a curated selection of 250 garments from the esteemed Costume Institute collection. These garments, like slumbering beauties awaiting their awakening, will emerge from their dormant state to take center stage once more.

The importance of the natural aspect will not be overlooked: the thematic areas presented will indeed be divided according to the three dimensions of the planet, namely Earth, Sea, and Sky.

Some garments, the most delicate ones, will be exhibited only virtually during the show, through holographic illusions and three-dimensional videos, in order not to expose them to the risk of being damaged.

The goal of the Met Gala is to raise funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the venue that hosts it annually. Last year, 22 million dollars were raised, compared to the 6 million spent on organizing the event.

THE GUESTS AT THE MET GALA 2024

Besides Anna Wintour, this year’s event presenters will be Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Lopez, and the highly anticipated Zendaya, who is making her return to the Met Gala after participating in 2019.

For now, among the Kardashians, the only one who has confirmed her presence is Kendall Jenner, but it’s highly likely that other members of the famous family will also attend the event.

Furthermore, despite the seemingly simple and controversy-free theme, we are certain that some of the guests will not hesitate to surprise us with their extravagant proposals, foremost among them the Kardashians, should they attend Met Gala 2024.

Also not to be forgotten are the two very important honorary co-chairs of the evening, namely Jonathan Anderson, founder of the eponymous brand and creative director of Loewe, and Shou Chew, the CEO of TikTok.

The complete guest list for the Met Gala 2024 is still top secret, but we’re pretty sure that among the celebrities attending the 2024 fashion Oscars, we’ll find Gisele Bündchen with her new boyfriend Joaquim Valente, Olivia Rodrigo, Uma Thurman, Sarah Paulson, Cara Delevingne, Rihanna, and the new stars Lily Gladstone, Ayo Edebiri, and Barry Keoghan, the star from Saltburn.

So, all we have to do is wait for the evening of May 6th for confirmation and to discover all the looks.

MET GALA 2024: THE RULES GUESTS MUST FOLLOW

There are certainly rules to follow to participate in an exclusive event, including:

  • Smoking inside the building is prohibited, even though many stars do it secretly.
  • Recording videos or taking photos, even selfies, is prohibited, but as we know, many celebrities do not follow this rule.
  • Guests attending the event must be approved by Anna Wintour, who usually approves at least 80% of the looks of the stars  present.
  • Brands that want to participate must reserve a table, for as much as 200 or 300 thousand dollars, but this gives them the opportunity to dress the guests.
  • Usually, foods like garlic and onions are excluded from the dinner menu, as well as some foods that are difficult to eat or bite into, or that may accidentally get stuck between the teeth of celebrities, such as parsley. However, it is well known that there is not a great abundance of food.
