The 2024 Met Gala “Garden of Time” Theme and Dress Code, Explained


Who is hosting the 2024 Met Gala?

The cohosts joining Anna Wintour this year are Bad BunnyZendayaJennifer Lopez and Chris Hemsworth. This will commemorate the Marvel actor’s first time at the annual event, while it marks Bad Bunny’s third appearance, the Euphoria actress’ sixth and J.Lo’s 14th.

How long with the fashion exhibit be at the Metropolitan Museum?

The exhibit runs from May 10 through Sept. 2.

According to the MET, the show will feature approximately 250 garments and accessories all connected visually through nature.

So, expect to be transported, as the exhibit includes several sensory capabilities, like smelling hats with floral notes or touching walls embossed with embroidered fabrics. And prepare to gaze upon the “illusion technique known as Pepper’s ghost,” the museum website states, which will display how the “hobble skirt” restricted women’s strides in the early 20th century.

All in all, the exhibit will span over 400 years of fashion history and showcase designs by Schiaparelli, Dior, Givenchy and others. And the pieces that are too fragile to ever be worn again—such as a Charles Frederick Worth gown from 1877—will be viewed through “animation, light projection, AI, CGI and other forms of sensory stimulation,” the museum website reads.

“By appealing to the widest possible range of human senses,” Andrew said in a press release, “the show aims to reconnect with the works on display as they were originally intended—with vibrancy, with dynamism, and ultimately with life.”
