New York Met Gala 2024: Hosts and Theme Revealed

The New York Met Gala, set for May 6, has unveiled its hosts for this year’s philanthropic event. Singers Bad Bunny and Jennifer Lopez, both hailing from Puerto Rican roots, will join actors Zendaya from the Euphoria series and Chris Hemsworth, known for portraying Thor in Marvel movies.

Anna Wintour Joins the Star-Studded Lineup

Alongside the talented quartet, Anna Wintour, the influential editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, will co-host the gala. Wintour has spearheaded the charity gala since the 1990s, turning it into a highly sought-after social gathering.

Glamour for a Cause

Every year, the gala attracts luminaries from the worlds of fashion, film, politics, and sports, showcasing extravagant outfits. The proceeds from the event play a pivotal role in funding the Costume Institute, the museum’s fashion department.

“The Garden of Time” – This Year’s Dress Code

The theme for this year’s gala is “The Garden of Time,” inspired by the work of English writer J.G. Ballard, exploring the ephemeral nature of beauty.

The gala coincides with the opening of the Costume Institute’s exhibition, focusing on its “sleeping beauties.” These delicate pieces are visually connected through nature-related iconography.

From High Society to Social Media Phenomenon

Originating in 1948, the Met Gala was initially an exclusive event for New York’s high society. In recent years, it has evolved into a social media sensation, with TikTok being one of the sponsors for both the gala and the exhibition.
