The 2024 Met Gala red carpet came and went, but we’re still talking about all the standout fashion moments from fashion’s biggest night.

The dress code for the 2024 Met Gala was “garden in time,” allowing its attendees to interpret the theme through storybook-inspired florals on the green carpet. Co-chair Zendaya wowed in not one extravagant look but two that showed off her eccentric approach to fashion in collaboration with her longtime stylist, the image architect Law Roach. Roach also made an appearance rocking his signature inches in a sleek buss down.

Men also represented on the green carpet. Ben Simmons and Jaden Smith showed off their style in Thom Browne, while Met Gala staple Lewis Hamilton dazzled in custom Burberry and Usher took a page out of an Alexander McQueen storybook.

Headpieces were also on trend at the 2024 Met Gala with Cardi B, Erykah Badu, and Willow Smith incorporated the headdresses into their look. All of which, made the Met Gala carpet an interesting talking point.

From Cardi B’s grand entrance to Tyla’s Balmain dress constructed of sand, and Doja Cat’s head-turning wet look, style experts Shamika Sanders, Char Masona, Darryl Glover, and Marsha B. break down the night’s most-talked-about fashion moments on this inaugural episode of HB Style Squad.
