The Costume Institute Benefit, also known as the Met Gala, will take place on May 6, 2024, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and the corresponding exhibition is set to launch in the museum on May 10. The event’s celebrity co-chairs have yet to be announced.

The 2023 theme was “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” which showcased more than 150 original looks designed by Lagerfeld, who died at age 85 in 2019, delving into the former Chanel creative director’s expansive seven-decade career. Many of his original sketches also appeared alongside the objects on display. Penélope Cruz, Dua Lipa, Roger Federer and Michaela Coel were the event’s co-chairs alongside Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, who has led the event since 1995.
