Queens of the Ball: Best Celebrity Looks at Met Gala 2024 (and What They Mean)

These ladies conquered everyone with their impeccable interpretation of the theme, collaboration with the most fashionable brands, and enviable taste. Let's review the best looks from this year's Met Gala and discuss the inspirations behind them.

The Time Garden: Literal Interpretation and Timeless Fashion

This year, the Met Gala attendees were hard to impress with the "Time Garden" theme, and guests arrived on the red carpet adorned in floral gowns covered in delicate green dust, adorned with tulips, roses, vines, and tree bark. Curator Andrew Bolton conceived the exhibition and gala concert as a return to something eternal and grand. The exhibition, which will run until September 2, showcases iconic wardrobe pieces, from Charles Frederick Worth's 1977 dress to an Elizabethan corset from the 17th century.

Some stars, along with their stylists and fashion houses, went beyond expectations. We saw sand dresses, corsets made with a 3D printer, and references to famous paintings. Let's dive into the looks that captured our hearts.

Taylor Russell in Loewe

Taylor Russell wore a Loewe dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, and Fred Leighton jewelry. The duo of Jonathan Anderson and Taylor Russell is mesmerizing. The actress became the muse of the designer and showcased the most fashionable looks that left us speechless. Her debut as the global ambassador for Loewe at the Met Gala 2024 was a true statement. The wooden marquetry corset, smoothly flowing into a trailing skirt, immediately catches the eye. The designer continued his work with biomimicry, creating a corset that was 3D-printed and perfectly molded to Taylor Russell's body. The bronze tone of her skin and the wooden flowers in her hair completed the look.

Black Swans: The Most Beautiful Black Dresses at Met Gala 2024

Tilda chose Balmain for her debut appearance at the Met Gala, opting for an outfit that resembled sand. The dress featured three shades of sand adorned with micro-crystals, and she held an hourglass as a symbol of something ephemeral that she wanted to immortalize. Many compared this dress to the one Bella Hadid wore during the Coperni show, as both dresses flawlessly accentuated the figure and flowed into a mermaid-like train.

Elle Fanning appeared on the red carpet in the guise of Disney princess Aurora from the 1959 animated movie "Sleeping Beauty." Her crystal dress, reminiscent of an icy sculpture, emphasized the actress's delicate nature, which we have come to appreciate. It's hard to imagine her in a dramatic look, and it's unnecessary when she looks stunning in Balmain. The star also hinted at another inspirational look on social media: the princess Aurora from "Maleficent," where she played the lead alongside Angelina Jolie.

Maison Margiela Artisanal by John Galliano designed Zendaya's dress, Christian Louboutin provided the shoes, and Bulgari created the jewelry. Zendaya hadn't attended the Met Gala for five years, and her appearance divided the audience: some were disappointed, while others were amazed. Regardless of personal opinions, her look was undeniably striking. The actress stood out under the guidance of her stylist, Law Roach, making not one, but two vintage-inspired red carpet appearances.

Pamela Anderson has recently returned to the fashion scene and set major trends, from her iconic red swimsuit in "Baywatch" to natural makeup. Making her debut at the Met Gala, she paid homage to English princess Margaret in a Dior dress she wore on her 21st birthday in 1951. The graceful draping in powder pink exposed one shoulder and gracefully flowed into a multi-layered skirt. The look was adorned with diamond threads and crystals, totaling approximately 200 carats from the Panadora brand.

These are just a few of the stunning and memorable looks from the Met Gala 2024. Each outfit told a unique story and added to the overall enchantment of the event. The combination of fashion, art, and glamour made this year's Met Gala truly unforgettable.
