The exhibit will feature approximately 250 rare items from the Costume Institute’s permanent collection that span more than 400 years of fashion history, including designs by some of the world’s most revered fashion visionaries and houses including Dior, Schiaparelli, Givenchy, and more. According to Vogue, some of the garments are too fragile to wear—including a Charles Frederick Worth ball gown from 1877—and will be displayed via video animation, light projection, AI, CGI, and other forms of sensory stimulation.

Who are the 2024 Met Gala co-chairs?

In addition to Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, this year’s celebrity co-chairs are multi-hyphenate Jennifer Lopez, actor Zendaya, musician Bad Bunny, and actor Chris Hemsworth.

What Even is the Met Gala?

Organized and presided over by Wintour since 1995, the Met Gala has become a truly iconic yearly celebration of high fashion (it’s known colloquially as “the Oscars of Fashion.”) A fundraiser for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, it’s usually timed to mark the opening of its annual fashion exhibition in May of every year. The one exception was in 2021, when the gala was held in September due to COVID-19 restrictions. The event raises eight-figure sums and invites around 600 of world’s most famous actors, models, designers, captains of industry, editors, and generally some of the world’s most highly influential and powerful people.
