Feast Your Eyes on the Secret Garden That Was the 2024 Met Gala

If you didn't catch the Met Gala Monday night (and, really, who actually watches it in real time?), you're among friends who did. We took a break from our endless TikTok scrolling to instead endlessly scroll Instagram to see the hottest looks at the fashion event of the year. Unlike any other fashion show or movie premiere, the Met is so intriguing because of the theme and dress code — which are different, believe it or not. This year's soiree celebrated precious, vintage fashion while using a short story by J.G. Ballard, "The Garden of Time," as the fashion blueprint. The piece is about a lush garden in the middle of a dystopian wasteland, the pride of it being glass blooms that protect the oasis. The stars came out in their floral best that would have even Miranda Priestly on board.
