How Fashion Icons Merged Artistry and Style in ‘The Garden of Time’ – A Recap of the 2024 Met Gala’s Most Captivating Moments

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York hosted the 2024 Met Gala on Monday.

Vogue announced in November 2023 that the event’s theme would be “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” inspired by the Costume Institute’s exhibit showcasing “precious masterpieces of fashion,” some of which are too delicate to be worn.

Prior to the event, Vogue reported that attendees’ attire would be themed “The Garden of Time,” inspired by J.G. Ballard’s 1962 short story of the same name. Many attendees incorporated floral details and archival pieces into their looks, as anticipated.

Anna Wintour, Vogue’s editor-in-chief, personally selects the invitees for the ultra-exclusive event, where tickets this year were priced at $75,000 each.

Here are the celebrities who perfectly embodied this year’s Met Gala theme.
