Met Gala Announces 2024 Dress Code, Co-Chairs

The Met’s Spring 2024 Costume Institute Benefit Dress Code is “The Garden of Time”

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has announced the dress code co-chairs for this year’s Costume Institute Benefit, which will be held on May 6th in New York. Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Lopez, Anna Wintour, and Zendaya will serve as co-chairs for the evening.

The Met Gala takes place annually on the first Monday in May and marks the opening of The Costume Institute’s spring exhibition – this year, Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion. The exhibition is dedicated to pieces in the collection that are so fragile and delicately crafted that, in order to be preserved, they can never be worn again. With its name borrowed from a J.G. Ballard short story, the dress code similarly leans into this idea of fleeting, ephemeral beauty.

In celebration of this year’s exhibition theme, the dress code for the Benefit will be “The Garden of Time.” Shou Chew, Chief Executive Officer of TikTok (which is one of the event’s co-sponsors), and Jonathan Anderson, creative director of Loewe, will serve as the evening’s honorary chairs.
