The 2024 Met Gala took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6th. It was hosted by VOGUE Editor in Chief, Anna Wintour and celebrity Co-Chairs. The Met celebrated the Costume Institute’s new exhibition, with the theme of “The Garden of Time.”

All of the outfits demonstrated the celebrity’s style while also showcasing the theme at hand. Here are some of the best dressed from the 2024 Met Gala. 

Zendaya

Zendaya, an actress, showed off not one but two looks that night. She stunned the crowd with her initial outfit, which was a custom Maison Margiela dress designed by John Galliano. The dress had earthy tones with a blue and green color pallet. Zendaya’s second outfit was a big black dress with an enormous train and her head was adorned with a big bouquet of various roses. The outfit was a vintage Givenchy couture dress from its spring 1996 collection that had never been worn.

“Zendaya’s outfit was really interesting and I thought it really fit the theme of the whole Met Gala and I really liked it,” said Arnav Gupta (‘26).

Nicki Manaj

Moving on from the more muted earthy tones, the next few outfits showed off a bright floral pattern. 

Rapper Nicki Manaj also made heads turn at the event she wore a short yellow dress that had flowers of different kinds blooming out of it. The designer behind the look, Marni, paired the dress with a pair of bright yellow pumps and a mini handbag with a similar pattern as the dress. 

These outfits stood out and were memorable from the evening, each of these designers followed the theme and made their outfits pop. 

Queen Latifah

Queen Latifah, an influential American rapper and artist, was styled by Thom Browne for the evening. She wore a floor length shiny black gown with big yellow flower details, and a coat that had a white trim with the same yellow flowers on the inside.

 

“I think the flowers on the dresses represented the Garden of Time very well and a lot of the outfits were nature centric and a lot of them contained flowers, which I thought was really a nice change of pace from previous years,” said Ronan Aravind (‘26).

Raye

Raye, an American Songwriter styled by Fendi, wore a strapless sparkly silver dress with a white corset and long silver gloves. Past the corset the dress was covered in thousands of small silver flowering details hanging off the dress and the gloves were covered in the same material as well. 

The theme resonated differently with all. Some took different aspects of the theme more to heart like the next outfit by Olivier Rousteing. 

Tyla

Tyla, a South African singer and songwriter, wore a tight-fitted Balmain gown that looked like a sandy hourglass designed by Olivier Rousteing. Accessorized with a small hourglass, Tyla’s outfit showed the aspect of time through using the running sand in the hourglass, and she had sand glued onto her arms to overall look.

Doja Cat

While most designers and celebrities stuck to the given theme, some chose to make a controversial decision or interpret the theme very differently compared to others, like Doja Cat.

“I thought Doja Cat’s outfit didn’t really fit the theme at all and it was like pretty indecent and I’m not about seeing nudity in public,” said Jason Fletcher (‘26).

This year Doja Cat took the carpet by surprise wearing what seems to be a long white gown that looked like a t-shirt serving a “wet” look, with a clean buzz cut, and glittery teardrops running down her cheeks. She later came out to say on the carpet that she chose the look by the designer Vetements as a white t-shirt, which is timeless, but viewers are divided on whether the outfit really fit the theme.
