This years Met Gala dress code?

The 2024 Met Gala dress code is “The Garden of Time,” inspired by J.G. Ballard’s 1962 short story. The story centers on Count Axel and his wife, the Countess, who have a perfect life filled with beauty, art, and leisure. A home with a balcony overlooking a garden of crystalline flowers is featured in the novel; this mansion represents modern contemporary society and the psychological ramifications of social, technical, or environmental advancements. The crowd storms the villa, where a neglected garden has a statue of the Count and his Countess entwined in belladonna plants. The Count needs to remove a time-reversing flower from his garden in order to bring peace back.

The gala theme embraces the “garden” element of the plot and highlights transient beauty while striking a balance between art, relaxation, and beauty via sad flowers. Despite its diverse interpretation, floral and botanical looks are expected to grace the red carpet.
