Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya, Bad Bunny and Chris Hemsworth to Co-chair 2024 Met Gala ‘The Garden of Time’

The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced on Thursday its co-chairs for the 2024 Met Gala. 

Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya, Bad Bunny and Chris Hemsworth will join Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour as co-chairs for this year’s Costume Institute Benefit, which will have “The Garden of Time” as its theme.   

The theme is inspired by the upcoming “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” spring exhibition, which will open to the public on May 10. As previously reported by WWD, this year’s exhibition will feature 250 pieces that can no longer be dressed on mannequins due to their fragility. The pieces are part of the Costume Institute’s collection of 33,000-plus items.

“Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” will also feature artificial intelligence, video animation, light projection and diverse technologies to create a sensorial experience. 

Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya and Bad Bunny have attended the Met Gala multiple times before. Zendaya famously dressed up as Cinderella for the 2019 edition of the event, posing with stylist Law Roach as her fairy godmother on the red carpet.

This will be Chris Hemsworth’s first time at the star-studded event. The actor is currently promoting “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga,” which will debut a couple of weeks after the event on May 24. 

The 2024 Met Gala is scheduled for May 6 and is sponsored by TikTok. Shou Chew, chief executive officer of the social media platform, will serve as the evening’s honorary chair next to Loewe’s creative director Jonathan Anderson. 

The Met Gala is held annually on the first Monday of May, marking the beginning of the institute’s spring exhibition.
