The Met Gala 2024: Style Review Follow-up

The Met Gala 2024: Style Review Follow-up

The Met Gala takes place annually on the first Monday in May. It is a charity event known as the Costume Institute Benefit, often called the Oscars of Fashion. This year, it was held on the 6th of May to celebrate the Institution's upcoming exhibition, Sleeping Beauty: Reawakening Fashion. The exhibition, which opens on the 10th of May, features over two hundred and fifty historically significant pieces, referred to as the 'sleeping beauties' because they are too fragile to be worn. It includes an Elizabethan bodice and a silk satin ball gown from 1877. The guests' outfits were supposed to be inspired by the J.G. Ballard short story, 'The Garden of Time', which is intertwined with the exhibition's theme of the evolution of human history and the cycle of creation and destruction.

This year, there were so many amazing outfits (some on theme, some not so much) that, here, at the Hand Tailored Suit, we thought we'd better do a follow-up from our previous articles (that you can read here and here).  

Below, watch Esquire and Harper's Bazaar UK's YouTube videos of their round-up of the Best Dressed Men and Women at the event.

We covered a few of the outfits in the previous posts, but let's take a look at a few more.
