 The best looks from 2024’s Met Gala

In an industry where innovation is key and creativity reigns supreme, the 2024 Met Gala once again proved to be a stage for Hollywood’s elite to showcase their sartorial prowess. 

With this year’s theme, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” coupled with the dress code of “Garden of Time,” celebrities seized the opportunity to push the boundaries of fashion, resulting in a spectacle of bold colors, unique textures, and avant-garde silhouettes that amazed and impressed not only the public eye but fellow celebrities as well. 

Among the constellation of stars that graced the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s steps on Monday, a select few stood out as epitomes of style and sophistication. Of these, Zendaya, Lana del Rey, Tyla, Kylie Jenner, and Colman Domingo reigned supreme, acknowledging their exceptional contributions to the evening’s fashion narrative.

Colman Domingo, in his Met Gala debut, captivated onlookers with a striking ensemble by Willy Chavarria, featuring an ivory blazer adorned with a cascading cape—a homage to the iconic styles of Chadwick Boseman and Andre Leon Talley.

Kylie Jenner exuded timeless elegance in a custom “rose water” silk gown by Oscar de la Renta, while Tyla made a memorable entrance in a sculpted Balmain design, accentuating her figure with minimalistic accessories.

Lana del Rey embraced the gala’s thematic essence with a bespoke Alexander McQueen creation, evoking imagery of a mystical woodland with intricate 3D branch appliqués and a veil shrouding her face.

However, it was Zendaya who undeniably stole the spotlight, not only serving as co-chair of the event for the evening but also making Met Gala history with her dual appearances. Her ensembles—a moody Maison Margiela Couture gown adorned with fruit motifs and a vintage Givenchy creation exuding gothic glamor—left an indelible mark on the fashion landscape.

As the curtain falls on yet another unforgettable Met Gala, these luminaries remind us of the transformative power of fashion, transcending mere clothing to become a canvas for storytelling and self-expression. In a world that often clamors for conformity, they embody the spirit of individuality and creativity that defines true style, pushing the envelope yet again on what defines past, modern, and future high fashion.
