Met Gala is one of the biggest fashion extravaganzas in the year, and rightfully so. Hosted in the first week of May, the Met Gala or The Metropolitan Museum Of Art Costume Institute Benefit as it is formally called is the fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum Of Art’s Costume Institute, in New York, and is invitation-only. Each year, many celebrities flock to this esteemed red carpet, sashaying their best interpretation for the theme of the year, and this time around the Met Gala 2024 theme, was ‘The Garden Of Time’.


By now, we’re sure you’ve witnessed the various interpretations of the Met Gala 2024 theme, which was ‘The Garden Of Time’. Based on the short story by J.G. Ballard, where the main characters Count Axel and his wife live in a Palladian villa, and have a garden with crystal flowers that have the ability to turn back time. It is no wonder then, that for the Met Gala 2024 red carpet, we saw so many floral interpretations of the theme, each more breathtaking than the last.


The Met Gala 2024 guest list, as with all its previous seaons was painstakingly created by the institute and Anna Wintour, who has been serving as the chief organiser of the event since 1999. The guest lists for this high profile event are kept very private, and not many know who is attending till they spot their favourites at the Met Gala time. 
The biggest names on the Met Gala 2024 Guest List included Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Dua Lipa, Kylie Jenner, and Kim K among others. There were many supermodels that made to the Met Gala 2024 Guest List too, like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Kaia Gerber, and the evergreen beauty Naomi Campbell. Some of the other names that were spotted on the Met Gala 2024 red carpet included Serena Williams, Brie Larson, Michelle Yeoh, Sophia Coppola, and Kris Jenner. 


When it came to male celebrities, musicians Bad Bunny and Lil Nas X, actor Chris Hemsworth, Dan Levy, Jeff Goldblum, Andrew Scott, and Nicholas Galitzine, basking in the glory of his latest release were also spotted raising the temperatures at the Met Gala 2024. Designer Tom Ford was of course another big name on the Met Gala 2024 guest list.


Met Gala 2024 was graced by many Indian and South Asian stars, the biggest and most prominent name being Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt who wore a gorgeous Sabyasachi saree that stunned everyone. The Sabya saree did the Met Gala 2024 theme full justice, making it a favourite all over. The long train that followed Alia Bhatt's saree was missing from many pictures, and we suggest taking a look at the videos for a glimpse of it. 

Indian heiress Natasha Poonawala was another Indian at the Met Gala 2024 who stood out with her custom Margiela by the ace designer John Galliano, and Christian Louboutin heels. This is not her first rodeo, and not just at the Met Gala 2024, Natasha Poonawala has been making a statement at this red carpet for a bunch of years now, each look more striking than the other. 
Other South Asian stars included Simone Ashley in Prabal Gurung, Mindy Kaling in Gaurav Gupta, and Mona Patel who made her debut at the Met Gala 2024 in a Iris Van Herpen gown with embellishments that flutter, catching everyone’s eye.
