When It Comes to the Met Gala, Zendaya Always Understands the Assignment

As a five-time Met Gala attendee, Zendaya is no stranger to hitting the event’s famous red carpet. But one could say the fashion stakes are a little higher for the star at this year’s star-studded affair, given she’s an official 2024 Met Gala co-chair. On the first Monday in May, Zendaya will join fellow co-chairs Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Lopez, and Vogue’s Anna Wintour to welcome guests to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The gala will celebrate and raise funds for museum’s Costume Institute, which will be debuting its new spring exhibition, titled Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.

If anyone is up for the challenge of delivering a memorable fashion look on the Met steps, it’s Zendaya. Since attending her very first Met back in 2015, the Euphoria and Dune star has consistently served up ensembles that are as head-turning as they are on theme. One standout example? In 2018 when the actor wore an armored Versace look as a nod to Joan of Arc. It was a smart choice for the “Heavenly Bodies” theme, which dove into the intersection of Catholicism and fashion. Zendaya also nailed thematic dressing for the 2019 “Camp: Notes on Fashion” gala, when she showed up in a Cinderella-like Tommy Hilfiger gown, complete with stylist Law Roach as her fairy godmother—wand and all. If Zendaya is going to do one thing on the carpet, it’s put on a show.

As for that the star will wear to this year’s Met Gala, that’s obviously a secret. But considering the theme is centered around the idea of “sleeping beauties,” and that Zendaya is a not-so-secret lover of vintage, we’re already predicting a knockout archival moment.
