We’re discussing the magical Monday when the Monday blues vanish because we experience fashion in all its glory! The thrill of being the critic-in-chief sweeps away all worries. Are you ready to stroll down memory catwalk?

In the glorious month of May, our fashionista instincts are tingling with excitement as the iconic Met Gala approaches! As we eagerly await Met Monday, our inner fashion detectives are itching to delve into the vaults and rave about the most fabulous looks from Met Galas gone by. The Met’s 2024 Costume Institute exhibit, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” will whisk you away with around 250 dazzling pieces from the institute’s own treasure trove. But hold onto your tiaras, we’ve got a dress code to decode! Keep reading!

The 2024 Met Gala is going to be a blast from the past with a twist of modern glam at the 2024 Met Gala! This year, they’re taking a leaf out of J.G. Ballard’s book, quite literally, with a nod to his 1962 tale, “The Garden of Time.” The story revolves around Count Axel and his better half bask in Mozart’s melodies amidst a stunning villa, encircled by a garden adorned with crystalline blooms, all while a rowdy army marches closer. But how does this tale translate to the glitz of the Met? Well, it’s pretty simple, we’ll witness a night of floral frenzy and time-traveling threads! Expect celebs to rock the red (or should we say floral?) carpet with two key themes in mind. “Garden” spells floral explosion—think prints, colors, and motifs blooming in every direction. Meanwhile, “Time” invites a stroll down fashion memory lane, with archival styles making a chic comeback. It’s a night where history meets haute couture, and we’re all invited to party like it’s 1962!

Each passing year, the Met Gala glams up and amps up, and our vibes for 2024 scream “iconic” like it’s going to be the stuff of legend! We’re excited to see a star-studded extravaganza where Zendaya, Dua Lipa, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Sydney Sweeney, Sabrina Carpenter, Blake Lively, and a flock of other fabulous divas serve looks that’ll make jaws drop and cameras flash!

Blake Lively

 When the star of the 2022 Met evening made her grand entrance alongside her dashing hubby, she treated everyone to a jaw-dropping moment that’s still the talk of the town! Her jaw-dropping dress switcheroo on the red carpet was the stuff of legends! Blake Lively donned an Atelier Versace masterpiece, channeling the Statue of Liberty’s vibe. With a dramatic flourish, the bow on her skirt was undone, unveiling a stunning blue train reminiscent of the starry skies adorning Grand Central Station.

Kim Kardashian

Oh boy, did she ever cause a bit of havoc with that dress mishap! But let us tell you when she walked onto that 2022 Met Carpet, she was absolutely slaying it. Kardashian rocked an authentic Marilyn Monroe number straight from Ripley’s Believe It or Not. She went through a whole transformation, shedding 16 pounds just to squeeze into that “Happy Birthday Mr. President” dress. Sure, she switched to a replica for the gala itself, but she made sure to dazzle everyone in that original showstopper on the carpet.

Anne Hathway

We’re still reeling from her “Devil Wears Prada” vibes, and this lady seems to have found the fountain of youth! Flashback to 2023 at the Met Gala, Anne Hathaway dazzled in a figure-hugging white tweed Versace dress. It featured daring cutouts that oozed sultriness, one even extending into a thigh-high slit, all held together by those iconic Versace gold safety pins. She was an absolute vision!

Dua Lipa

As she strolled along that crimson pathway, our minds instantly conjured up visions of a real-life Disney princess. At the 2023 Met Gala, Lipa graced the event in a classic Chanel ball gown, paying homage to “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.” Adorned with a gleaming Tiffany & Co. necklace, she was the epitome of elegance and charm. That unforgettable moment of her gliding down the carpet continues to occupy prime real estate in our thoughts to this day!

Olivia Rodrigo

Taking her encore stroll down the iconic Met Gala red carpet in 2022, Rodrigo rocked a lavender Versace mesh gown adorned with butterfly hair accessories and De Beers jewels. Though it may have screamed “prom vibes,” her glam game was at its peak, confirming she owned that Met Carpet. The hair and accessories were an impeccable match for the outfit, serving as prime inspiration for any prom-goers out there!

Billie Eilish

Well, it’s no surprise when yet another celeb goes all Marilyn Monroe on us at the red carpet! After all, diving into the retro vibes is always a blast. At the 2021 Met Gala, the singer wore a peachy, 1950s-inspired masterpiece by Oscar De La Renta. With its full skirt, dramatic train, corset that’s boned to perfection, and a tulle shawl to boot, this ensemble was the epitome of girly glam. Who knew this singer, usually rocking street style, could slay the vintage game so effortlessly?


Forget the dress; what sticks in our minds is the epic moment when Roach transformed into Zendaya’s very own fairy godmother. With a flick of his wand and a sprinkle of magic, her gown shimmered like the coolest Christmas tree ever! Talk about surreal! At the 2019 Met Gala, Zendaya rocked a custom Cinderella gown courtesy of Tommy Hilfiger. And as for accessories, her bag was none other than Cinderella’s carriage itself!

Gigi Hadid

Gigi is the reigning queen of the Met Gala! Every time she hits the red carpet with her BFF Kendall, it’s like a party on its own. Remember 2018? Gigi rocked a jaw-dropping custom Versace gown, channeling those heavenly vibes with stained-glass window inspiration. And oh boy, that thigh slit? It was like BAM! She turned that dress into a sizzling sensation. Completing the look with chic drop earrings and a hairdo that screamed sophistication, Gigi owned that night like a boss!

Cara Delevingne

We were torn between her styles from 2021 and 2017, but come on, she rocked that silver bald head at the 2017 Met Gala! It was like she brought the disco to outer space with her shiny dome and cosmic vibes. Her outfit was straight from Chanel’s Fall 2016 collection. And remember, she embraced her baldness for her role in ‘Life in a Year,’ but for the Met Gala, she turned it into a sparkling spectacle with silver paint and crystal dots.

Jennifer Lopez

The short skirts waved farewell as JLo made her grand entrance at the 2017 Met Gala, donning a majestic sky-blue gown straight out of a fairy tale by Valentino. With its sheer tulle layers, high neckline, and dramatic train, it was a surprising departure from her usual style, but boy, did she slay in it! And let’s not forget those dazzling earrings—because when it comes to stealing the spotlight, diamonds are forever! Oh, and did I mention she arrived arm-in-arm with her beau?


It was the ultimate unforgettable moment, not only for us but also for the superstar herself – fashionably late! Beyoncé rocked the scene in a dazzling, custom-made Givenchy gown by the talented Riccardo Tisci, complete with a chic high ponytail. The gown, adorned with an array of pastel-colored crystals, was no lightweight, but Beyoncé effortlessly slayed the red carpet alongside Jay Z, and together, they radiated pure glamour!


Among all her iconic looks, one from 2015 takes the cake. She rocked a 55-pound, sunny-yellow masterpiece by Chinese designer Guo Pei. This epic ensemble boasted a 16-foot train that was practically a red carpet of its own! Despite feeling the jitters, our fabulous singer walked like royalty in this colossal creation. And that golden headband? It was the cherry on top, elevating the glam to a whole new level!
