See the 2024 Met Gala's best-dressed stars

NEW YORK — The 2024 Met Gala saw hundreds of celebrities dressed in their best outfits for fashion’s biggest night. 

Florals took centerstage on the green carpet as stars arrived for one of the most star-studded and secretive parties of the year.

“It’s celebrating creativity and individuality,” said Kylie Minogue. 

The Garden of Time” dress code celebrated nature as a metaphor for the ephemerality of fashion. 

“I’m always honoring the garden of time by trying to stay in the present moment,” said Jonathan Groff.

There were plenty of big moments and big looks. 

Cardi B needed eight handlers to help her and her dress up the museum steps, Lana Del Ray came with an antler headpiece, and Lizzo needed help turning her head. 

The Met Gala marks the opening of the museum’s 2024 spring exhibition, named “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.” There will be 250 rare historical garments on display, including some pieces so fragile they cannot even be worn by mannequins. 

“I hear some of the pieces are incredibly old and fragile. So I’m gonna make sure to not fall over and tip over any of the exhibition pieces,” said Alexander Skarsgård. 

Actress Lily Gladstone worked with an indigenous designer on her dress with nearly 500 silver stars. 

“And they’re all in the shape of constellations that you would see on the great plains on summer solstice,” said Gladstone. 

Zendaya walks the red carpet twice

Costume changes came from Demi Moore and Zendaya, one of the hosts of the gala who walked the carpet not once, but twice. 

“It’s also a night that requires a lot of work to be put together, and then a lot of support to the fashion industry, which is to me a total art,” said Penélope Cruz.

The night wasn’t just for Hollywood’s hottest, but Broadway’s as well, including the Tony-nominated leads of “Cabaret.” 

“Tonight I’m on water. It’s gonna be a gentle night for me cause I have a night off from the show,” said Eddie Redmayne.

“I’m honoring the original Sally Bowles, who iconically kind of wore a beret like this, and I’m giving her flowers,” said Gayle Rankin. 

Between the opulent outfits and the star-studded lineup, it’s hard to compare the Met Gala to any other night

“I’m looking forward to being with some friends,” said Dan Levy. 

“When you step on the carpet, it’s go time, it’s Game 7. And I hope by the end of the game, I look at my stats, I hope I did well when I see the photos come out,” said retired NBA star Dwayne Wade. 

A single ticket to this year’s Met Gala started at $75,000, with tables starting at $350,000. The gala is the Costume Institutes primary source of funding and raised $22 million last year.
