Every year, the world’s most influential figures across industries convene at the prestigious Met Gala. Touted as American fashion’s most important night, the annual event inspires craftsmanship and creativity beyond limits, allowing designers and stars to shine. This year, the Met Gala’s theme, “The Garden of Time,” is paired with the Costume Institute’s “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” exhibition, which takes a look at fashion across time.

EnVi rounds up the night’s best-dressed attendees. 

Bad Bunny

Last year, Bad Bunny made waves on the Gala’s red carpet with a memorable custom backless white suit by Jacquemis. This year, the Puerto Rican musician — who serves as the event’s co-chair alongside Zendaya and Anna Wintour — showed off his unique sense of style with a striking  Maison Margiela Artisanal Collection look by John Galliano. Dressed in a black cinched suit with vibrant red stripes and white stitching, the rapper embodied “The Garden of Time” theme flawlessly. Paired with a beret, diamond-shaped sunglasses, black leather gloves and a black bouquet of flowers, Bad Bunny’s look was a testament to his fashion-forward persona.

Emma Chamberlain

Emma Chamberlain commanded attention as she walked the carpet, dressed in a custom Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2003 couture gown. The chocolate brown lace and strapless corset bodice harmonized with thorn-wrapped lace. Breathing life into the garden-themed piece, dark brown tendrils mimicking thorns wrapped around the star’s left arm up to her shoulder with a matching brown sheer cape flowing freely behind her. To amplify the gothic-infused look, the internet icon wore dramatic smoky eyes paired with a nude brown and pink lip combo.


Woman of the hour, Zendaya, made her highly-awaited appearance wearing a Maison Margiela look inspired by vintage Christian Dior. The gown channeled a runway look from the Spring Summer 1999 haute couture collection designed by John Galliano. As one of the event’s co-chairs and most anticipated guests, The Challengers’ star spared no detail with her royal blue and forest green mermaid-cut gown. A hummingbird, tulle detail and nature motifs complemented the gown’s color scheme. Celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath created Zendaya’s edgy maroon look, which consisted of smoky eyeshadow and a dark, glossy lip. As always, Zendaya worked with her long-time stylist Law Roach to create this memorable Met Gala look.

South African singer and songwriter Tyla made her Met Gala debut wearing a Balmain gown inspired by the sands of passing time — in fact, the singer’s dress is made out of sand! Tyla’s form-fitting dress mimicked the silhouette of an hourglass, while her purse was a recreated hourglass complete with shifting sand. Tyla’s dedication to the night’s theme was tangible even in her hair and makeup. The star’s minimalistic jewelry paired neatly with her gown and sand-inspired makeup coated her left shoulder, right hand and forearm. 

Nichapat Suphap

Founder of The Venture Management and contributing editor at Vogue Thailand, Nichapat Suphap, returned to the Met Gala for the fifth year in a row, in an asymmetrical white gown. The custom Versace dress, designed by Donatella Versace herself, featured a fit-and-flare silhouette and dramatic high slit that showed off Nichapat’s satin white heels. Pairing her cutout dress wth dark eyeshadow, a statement manicure and jewelry from Piaget, Nichapat channeled an Old Hollywood star in her prime.

Quannah Chasinghorse

Indigenous activist Quannah Chasinghorse took an H&M custom creation to the Met Gala red carpet. The gown, in forget-me-not blue, paid homage to Chasinghorse’s homeland Alaska’s state flower and featured a large skirt and oversized off-shoulder neckline. The model and activist further enhanced the look with beaded and tufted floral accessories crafted by Indigenous designer Heather Dickson of Dickson Designs.

On 6 May, H&M joined fashion’s biggest night of the year, the Met Gala. Quannah Chasinghorse walked the red carpet wearing bespoke H&M.

Karol G 

Latin icon Karol G stunned on the green carpet with a fantasy-infused look. Channeling the ethereal beauty of magical creatures, the pop star transformed into a fairy-slash-elf in a Marc Jacobs look. “I think this was the perfect opportunity for me to express how much I love fairies, dreamy vibes and fantasies,” she told Ashley Graham and Gwendolyn Christie at her arrival. The gorgeous dress featured a corseted bodice, a hoop skirt structure and crystal embroideries. To match the inspiration, Karol G wore platinum blonde hair in soft waves and prosthetic ears.

Alia Bhatt 

British-Indian actress Alia Bhatt brought Indian representation to the Met Gala with a timeless, hand-embroidered saree. Created by Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, the traditional Southeast Asian dress adopted a grass-like garden concept that matched the gala’s theme. The mint green floral-embroidered look was veiled in multi-colored gemstones, showering from the top of Bhatt’s head to the bottom of her gown. The two-piece saree sported ruffles on the hems and sparkling silver tassels lined within the lower half of the dress’ silhouette. Alongside her shoulder-length earrings and rings, Bhatt wore a Sabyasachi head accessory featuring a 23-foot-long embroidered net decorated with sequins, gems, and floral patterns.

Sydney Sweeney

Fresh off a busy year since her attendance at last year’s Met Gala, actress Sydney Sweeney made a dramatic comeback with a grandiose gown and new hairstyle. Sweeney’s princess-like baby blue gown was sprinkled with embroidered blue flowers, connecting the fitted bodice to the voluminous tulle skirt. Temporarily obscured by her bejeweled veil was perhaps the most shocking part of Sweeney’s look for the night: a newly-debuted black bob. Completing the dreamy ensemble was a simple but glimmering necklace, blush-forward makeup, and elbow-length gloves.

Ariana Grande

Six years after her buzzworthy appearance at the 2018 Met Gala, Ariana Grande made her return to the iconic steps of the Met. Grande was dressed in a mother-of-pearl-inspired gown by Loewe. The strapless white gown featured a prominent bodice constructed with a holographic finish and a loosely pleated skirt that pooled around Grande’s feet. The singer’s makeup for the night, courtesy of r.e.m. beauty, was the seamless accompaniment for the classy look, which seemingly paid homage to her role of Glinda the Good Witch in the upcoming Wicked film.

Lana del Rey 

“Young and Beautiful” singer Lana del Rey sported an Alexander McQueen creation inspired by the house’s archives. The double-georgette and tulle corset dress in silk drew elements from Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti’s sculptures to channel “The Garden of Time” dress code. Lana’s dress was complemented with a dramatic headpiece handcrafted from natural hawthorn branches and covered with a tulle veil. The singer further elevated the look with calf hair Hoof boots and a metal bronze bag with clock details that nodded at the literary piece inspiring the gala’s dress code.

Cynthia Erivo

Actress Cynthia Erivo, whose outfit balanced formal and whimsical attributes, looked immaculate in Thom Browne. Taking the foundation of a three-piece suit and deviating from convention, Erivo’s ensemble was theatrically showered with pastel pink rose petals and tastefully adorned with forest critters. Trailing coattails, a tailored cropped hem, drop earrings, a statement manicure paired and a delicate pink purse from Thom Browne’s Spring 2023 ready-to-wear collection completed the actress’ show-stopping look.


As Burberry’s brand ambassador and one of Thailand’s most beloved artists, Bright Vachirawit, stunned the public in his custom-tailored Burberry suit. Courtesy of the London-based label, Bright wore a black jacket with bullion stitching layered atop a gold mesh tank top and matching wide-legged silk tuxedo pants. The look was brought together with black square-toe loafers, silver pointed earrings, and a sleek curtain mullet, creating a neat and charming demeanor fitting for the Thai star.

Penélope Cruz

Penélope Cruz, a beacon of elegance, made a statement at the Met Gala in a breathtaking Chanel look. The Oscar-winning actress donned a Chanel Haute Couture off-shoulder evening gown with exquisite details including eight types of French floral lace. The dress embodied timeless elegance with a black and silver silk tulle train. Cruz completed the regal look with Chanel’s Tweed High Jewelry diamond stud earrings, rings and a matching necklace and bracelet.

Chris Hemsworth

Serving as co-chair of the 2024 Met Gala, Chris Hemsworth made his appearance wearing a look form Tom Ford Fall 2024. The cream-colored three-piece suit offered a simple but timeless take on menswear. Hemsworth’s look was complemented by a finishing touch of gold chains, rings, and wristwear. Accompanied by his wife, Elsa Pataky, the couple made a glowing Met Gala debut.

Amanda Seyfried

Perfectly aligned with the Garden of Time theme, American actress Amanda Seyfried shone with her floral ball gown look. Styled in custom Prada, Seyfried modeled a crinkled metallic silver dress decorated with blooming flowers in pink, black, and silver. Pulling a transformation for the special night, Seyfried had a major hair change-up featuring silver hair slicked back in a twisted bun with a swirled curl styled on the side. The actress continued to embody this metallic floral theme as she bared a silver vine crown, diamond studded earrings and ring, and a polished silver manicure.

Wearing a custom Alaïa mini dress, BLACKPINK’s Jennie made a stunning appearance at her second Met Gala. The royal blue cutout dress was paired with a pearl waist chain and matching earrings. Elegantly embodying a water theme aligned with “The Garden of Time” dress code, Jennie proved (once again) to be one of the best-dressed South Korean stars in the biz.

Mindy Kaling 

Actress Mindy Kaling opted for avant-garde glam with a show-stopping Gaurav Gupta dress. Titled “The Melting Flower of Time,” the sculptural gown was inspired by blooming flowers and featured layers of structural draping simulating the petals of a flower in bloom. Gupta explained the meaning behind the look in an Instagram post.  “These petals, representing the fleeting beauty of nature, softly mimic the cycles of nature as they melt down with time from the gown’s detailed structure,” he wrote 

Anok Yai

Model Anok Yai channeled water with a futuristic Swarovski catsuit featuring ice blue, sapphire and aquamarine crystals. Crafted from sheer silk tulle and embellished with 98,000 crystals, the exquisite piece took over 130 hours of work by eight artisans. Yai combined the embellished catsuit with a one-of-a-kind necklace from the Swarovski Created Diamonds collection. The statement jewelry piece featured 1,050 diamonds (7 different cuts, total weight 156.62 carats), adding extra bling to the model’s Met Gala fit.
