Met Gala 2024 theme

This year's dress code will align with the previously revealed theme, “Sleeping Beauties: Fashion Again.”

Museum curators said that “Sleeping Beauty” is not inspired by Disney princesses, but instead, the precious clothes in the museum's collection are so fragile that they need to be placed in special glass “coffins” instead of on mannequins. The clothes are scheduled to be displayed in a series of exhibitions organized by nature themes.
