This year’s theme is ‘Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion’ and the dress code is ‘The Garden of Time’. The exhibition will replicate museum experiences using research, conversation, and technology.

As the countdown to the big night ticks away, here are seven A-listers who are highly sought-after to grace the 2024 Met Gala.

Beyoncé's trajectory from her debut at the Met Gala in 2008 till now has been quite the journey. The singer has been pushing boundaries more and more as time goes on, particularly with her unforgettable Givenchy dresses in 2015 and 2016.

Even though Beyoncé has not attended the Met Gala since 2016, her fashion legacy remains as powerful as ever. Her last appearance in the stunning baby-pink Givenchy ensemble crafted from latex was a masterclass in style.

With her influence in the fashion world only growing stronger, fans are eagerly holding out hope for her return to the 2024 Met Gala stage.

Katy Perry

If there is one person who knows how to rock a Met Gala theme, it is Katy Perry. As an eight-time attendee, the singer has consistently embraced the event's dress code with fearless creativity. Take for instance her last appearance in 2022, where she turned heads in a striking black and white ensemble.

With Katy Perry officially on the guest list for the 2024 Met Gala, fans cannot wait to see what sartorial magic she will bring to the red carpet this time. 

Cardi B

When it comes to owning the Met Gala red carpet, Cardi B is in a league of her own. From her debut in 2018, where she stunned in a show-stopping Moschino by Jeremy Scott gown adorned with pearls and gemstones, she has been a fashion icon. Last year, she took it to the next level by effortlessly flaunting three different looks in one evening. 

With fans eagerly hoping for her presence at the 2024 event, they are anticipating another round of breathtaking fashion moments from the iconic American rapper. 

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande has been refining her fashion choices lately with classic blacks over her signature bubblegum pink. She has also been trying out a lot of Old Hollywood-inspired silhouettes and sophisticated styles. Fans have already seen her dedication to the Met Gala theme at the 2024 CinemaCon. 

With their anticipation at its peak, they are certain that the songstress will once again steal the show at the 2024 Met Gala.


Zendaya's reign as red-carpet royalty was not built in a day. Alongside her former stylist Law Roach, the former Disney star put in years of hard work to establish their fashion credentials. From being invited by designers to becoming a VIP capable of creating unforgettable moments on one of the world's most prestigious red carpets, Zendaya has truly earned her status. 

Throughout the years, she has delivered some of the most iconic Met Gala looks. After capturing all the attention at the 2024 Oscars with her stunning look, fans are even more excited about her attendance at the 2024 Met Gala. 

Lady Gaga

While everyone adds their own flavor to the Met Gala theme each year, it is Lady Gaga's spin on the dress code that really gets people talking. With her reputation for groundbreaking fashion statements, one might assume that the Oscar-winning artist has already exhausted every possible iteration of campy chic. But that cannot be the case. 

Even though she has only been an official Met Gala attendee three times, Gaga is basically ruling the Met Gala and is one of the event's most eagerly anticipated celebrities.

As the Metropolitan Museum prepares to welcome the stars from all corners of the world, rumors suggest Taylor Swift will make her entrance, possibly hand-in-hand with her high-profile NFL beau, Travis Kelce. With Swift currently on a hiatus, weaving her lyrical magic before the next stop of her Eras Tour in Paris, and Kelce biding his time before NFL training camp kicks off, the stars seem aligned for the couple's red carpet debut.

Especially after their brief retreat from the public eye, a joint Met Gala attendance would be a big comeback for the couple to the limelight.
