From Alia Bhatt to Zendaya; Celebs Who Dressed Best at Met Gala 2024

From exaggerated capes to voluminous gowns, fashion’s biggest night saw A-listers offering their unique take on the ‘Garden of Time’ theme.

Every year, the Met Gala red carpet produces some of the most memorable celebrity fashion moments of all time. Tonight’s very best-dressed attendees were those who paid homage to this year’s Met Gala theme, i.e. “the Garden of Time” as the dress code, doing so in both thoughtful and unexpected ways. The event was held in New York City on the 6th of May night, the fashion event celebrated the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) Costume Institute’s new exhibition, Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion, which focuses on some of the most fragile pieces spanning centuries of fashion history.

The annual fundraising event, which is held in celebration of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, is one of the most exclusive events of the year. The gala draws attendees from across industries, from tech to Hollywood. Invitees are hand-selected by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, and this year, tickets cost $75,000 each. Vogue reported that last year’s event raised a record-setting $22 million for the Costume Institute. 

Here is the list of best-dressed celebrities at the Met Gala 2024:

Alia Bhatt in Custom-Couture Sabyasachi Saree

Alia Bhatt did not disappoint with her dress selection at the Met Gala 2024. For the star-studded event, the actress chose a custom-couture saree by Sabyasachi, teamed with an exaggerated train, hand embroidered with silk floss, beads, sequins, semi-precious stones and fringed with glass beads. The hand-crafted blouse is studded with emeralds, Basra pearls, tourmalines and multi-coloured sapphires. This marks Alia’s second appearance at this prestigious event. 

Alia dropped the pictures on her Instagram handle and captioned the same talking about the significance of the theme and about the outfit as well. 

Zendaya in Margiela

Hollywood actor, Zendaya was one of the first to walk down the red carpet at the star-studded event, in a custom Margiela gown by John Galliano. The costume represents a clear reference to the designer’s Spring 1999 couture collection for Dior. The makeup was done by Pat McGrath with a headpiece from Philip Treacy, giving one of the edgiest yet fascinating looks at Met Gala 2024. 

For her second look of the evening, the actor gave us all something else to write about when she showed up in another look to close out the carpet: a Givenchy Spring 1999 couture gown, topped with a flower bouquet headpiece from the Alexander McQueen Spring 2007 collection, by Philip Treacy. This further proved that she and stylist Law Roach simply don’t miss.

Gigi Hadid in Thom Browne

Gigi Hadid donned a custom Thom Browne corset dress for the Met Gala 2024. Gigi’s outfit was a custom-made hand-crafted Thom Browne corset dress for the spectacular evening. The entire outfit was embroidered with over two million white micro bugle beads and the draped tailored jacket was in white silk moire, with black duchess satin tipping and rose appliques throughout with wingtip pumps in white and yellow pebble grain leather.

Rosalía in Dior

Upon hearing the theme of the Costume Institute’s exhibition for this year’s Met Gala, “Sleeping Beauties,” the Spanish singer immediately started to envision her look at the gala. During the interview, she mentioned since the theme is Sleeping Beauties and how when a person falls asleep all that they can see is black. 

The black gown of Rosalía by Dior was a re-creation of the house’s Ciseaux dress from 1949, and she said it made her feel like a “black tulip.”

Greta Lee in Loewe

Greta Lee justified the theme as she awakened and reimagined a Loewe SS23 runway look with 3-D floral motifs. The see-through outfit was accompanied by white heels and statement rings.

Jennifer Lopez in Schiaparelli

The co-host of the night JLo walked down the red carpet in a custom Schiaparelli couture by Daniel Roseberry. Her dress was designed using four butterfly wings enlarged to cover the whole surface of the dress. The outfit was a result of 800 hours of work with 2,500,000 silver foil bugle beads crafted on it. The outfit is not just about flowers but the butterflies that signify metamorphosis and transformation. Something which was asleep wakes up beautiful and powerful and brand new. The designer Mariel Haenn also talks more about the outfit in her Instagram post. “The butterfly is a perfect articulation of a sleeping beauty. Something that goes to sleep and wakes up beautiful also still lives in a garden without being a flower. The butterfly and idea of metamorphosis has been part of Schiaparelli’s DNA since the beginning,” she stated. 

Cynthia Erivo 

Cynthia Erivo sported a Thom Browne two-piece tuxedo set featuring pink petals and scattered insects. She accessorised it with a small pink handbag statement jewellery pieces and an incredibly studded bow hair accessory to put it all together. 

Kendall Jenner in archival 1999 Alexander McQueen for Givenchy Couture

The Archival Pull by Kendall Jenner is one of the hot topics on the internet. The haute couture dress was designed by Alexander McQueen for his Givenchy 1999 collection and was shown only on mannequins before going back to the designer’s archive. It hasn’t been worn by anyone until today when Jenner put it on.

Kaia Gerber in Prada

Kaia Gerber made a dashing entrance at the 2024 Met Gala. The supermodel was the epitome of sophistication in a strapless white Prada gown covered in large sequins, which gave it a subtle shine as she walked. The model paired the outfit with silver sandals and let her gleaming diamond jewellery do the talking. Dangling from her ears were large baby-pink oval diamonds with small white studs at the top. And on her chest rested a white diamond necklace with a giant pink diamond at the centre.

Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga

While most attendees opted for a more literal interpretation of “The Garden of Time” with floral pieces, Denma of Balenciaga was more interested in exploring the time aspect. Each guest dressed in Balenciaga was wearing a look that referenced another that had come from long before it like Nicole Kidman’s gown. The gown was inspired by a Cristóbal Balenciaga Haute Couture piece from 1951, with tiers of feathered details.

Isha Ambani

Isha Ambani arrived at the met steps in a bespoke hand-embroidered couture sari gown custom-designed by the Indian designer Rahul Mishra. She was styled by Anaita Shroff Adajania for the night.

Mona Patel

Her outfit featured exquisite golden detailing and a thigh-high slit in the middle and functional 3-D butterfly motifs.

Anna Wintour

The legendary icon Anna Wintour wore bespoke LOEWE at the Met Gala 2024. The outfit was inspired by a circa 1944 evening cape by 20th-century designer Charles James and tailoring from the LOEWE Fall Winter 2024 women’s collection. Sharing the details in their Instagram post, the brand wrote, “Anna’s tuxedo in wool with a silk satin shawl collar is decorated with floral motifs using hand-dyed feathers, tonal beading, and pearl embroidery. The jacket is paired with a long-sleeved dress in bias-cut silk satin.”


The South African singer and songwriter Tyla stole the show with her sensational look as she brought the Sands of Time to life on the 2024 Met Gala steps. The Balmain Atelier devised a unique appliqué technique for the gown, which features sand and micro crystal studs pressed directly onto fabric shaped by a plaster cast of the star’s own bodice.
