Everything You Need to Know About the Met Gala's 2024 Theme

The star-studded annual event inspires gorgeous and sometimes bonkers fashion choices.

Every year we wait with baited breath to see the beautiful and strange ways celebrities interpret the Met Gala’s theme. Well now, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute has finally revealed the details of their 2024 spring exhibition, which serves as the inspiration for the theme of fashion’s biggest event of the year.

The theme for the 2024 Met Gala is “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” which is far more esoteric than last year's theme of “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.”

“From a 17th century English Elizabethan-era bodice and Christian Dior’s famous Junon and Venus ballgowns, to 21st century acquisitions by designers including Phillip Lim, Stella McCartney, and Conner Ives, the core exhibit will span 400 years of history,” Vogue announced in an Instagram post on Wednesday, Nov. 8.

The event will take place on May 6, 2024 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and the accompanying museum exhibition will launch on May 10.

In years past, the event’s themes have inspired celebrities to push the boundaries of fashion in both delightful and odd ways. Kim Kardashian was famously criticized in 2022 for wearing the dress Marilyn Monroe dress wore when she sang “Happy Birthday” to JFK, in 2019 Katy Perry dressed as a chandelier and then changed into a giant cheeseburger costume when the theme was camp, way back in 2012 designer Marc Jacobs made a statement about gender-fluidity in fashion when he wore a see-through black lace gown over white boxer shorts, and last year Lil Nas X eschewed a typical black tuxedo and covered himself from head to tow in silver paint and rhinestones.

With next year’s theme spanning 400 years of fashion it’s hard to imagine what the celebs will come up with, but we can’t wait to find out!
