Met Gala 2024 sees Kim Kardashian, Rita Ora and Emily Ratajkowski brave red carpet in daring sheer dresses

Date:

Fashion took center stage at the 2024 Met Gala red carpet on the first Monday in May.

Hosted at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the theme for the Met Gala was “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” with a dress code of “The Garden of Time” inspired by J.G. Ballard’s story of the same name.

Kim Kardashian dared to bare wearing a Maison Margiela Couture gown by John Galliano which featured a silver corset and a hand-wired skirt made with metal elements. She kept somewhat covered up underneath a gray cashmere cardigan.

Rita Ora showed some skin wearing a colorful beaded Marni gown with cutouts running along the length of her body. She told Vogue that the beaded material dates “back to the first and second century B.C.”

Emily Ratajkowski showed some skin wearing a vintage Atelier Versace Haute Couture dress from the 2001 fall/winter collection. 

Ratajkowski left little to the imagination in the crystal-encrusted piece which included long sleeves and a small train.

Kendall Jenner rocked a ’99 Givenchy Haute Couture gown with delicate layers of black and nude tulle covering her body. A cut-out waist detail highlighted her supermodel frame, which had more than 100,000 beads and sequins embroidered onto the dress.

Her gown was inspired by the great paintings from the Renaissance and has been preserved in the archives since 1999. The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star was the first person to wear the dress.
