Met Gala 2024 Fashion: Our favourite looks

From Ariana Grande to Jeremy Strong, this year’s Met Gala welcomed a myriad of celebrities in looks exploring notions of rebirth and renewal

As the stars ascended the iconic steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the 2024 Met Gala, they weren’t just attending fashion’s most illustrious night—they were embodying this year’s ethereal theme, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.” With a dress code that invited attendees to delve into “The Garden of Time,” the evening unfolded as a parade of sartorial innovation and daring elegance. From avant-garde ensembles to resplendent interpretations of floral grandeur, the gala was a showcase of how fashion can transcend mere clothing to become a powerful narrative of rebirth and fantasy.

Herein, we’ve curated a selection of the evening’s most memorable looks that captured the essence of the theme while setting new benchmarks for creativity on the red carpet.

The “we can’t be friends” singer returned to the annual fundraising gala, embracing this year’s theme with her signature blend of panache and grace. Her ensemble, a breathtaking creation of which Loewe took inspiration from the iridescence of mother-of-pearl, sees a moulded bustier in leather and the luminous hue, paired with a multi-layered pleated silk chiffon skirt hand-painted to mimic the surface of the iridescent shell.

Black suits may often blend into the background, but Fendi’s interpretation is anything but ordinary. The Maison elevates the classic design by adorning the left bodice of a custom blazer with floral appliqués, infusing menswear with a touch of femininity. These embellishments, while subtle, catch and reflect the light, drawing all eyes to Galitzine’s refined demeanour.

Greta Lee steps into the limelight of the Met Gala draped in sheer white chantilly silk lace, featuring 3D floral appliqués to the floor and a dramatic high neckline. What truly stands out is the translucency of the dress, lending sensuality to the look as her skin peeps through.

Dressed in a bespoke tuxedo suit fashioned in lustrous silk and wool by Loro Piana, Jeremy Strong fully embraced this year’s theme by exploring the notion of preservation using flowers. Rather than a collar, the look sees a high neckline adorned with a flower that complements the petals on the blazer’s lapels.

Loewe sure knows how to pique our interest; with the number of Dan Levy making our list. While the silhouette of this custom Loewe piece is ever-so classic, the caviar pearl floral embroidery adds an intricate beauty; graduating from the trousers to the jacket’s hem, the handcrafted embellishment creates a mesmerising effect, alive with colourful climbing flowers.

Chioma Nnadi was the very epitome of elegance and class in a sandstone-hued Burberry co-ord set, defined by a ruffled sheer jersey dress and wool silk blend tuxedo trousers. The floor-length piece was tastefully embellished with floral crystals and a shearling trim, piquing senses with a juxtaposition of textures and shapes.

The dress makes the whole outfit… said no one ever. For the momentous occasion, Amanda Seyfried drew focus to her outfit with Chaumet creations: a Melodie Nacree tiara cradling her crown, a pair of Josephine Duo Eternel earrings that glimmered in the spotlights, and topping it all off with Laurier and Josephine Aigrette Imperiale rings, a symphony of opulence and refinement.
