Met Gala 2024

The Met Gala, often dubbed the “Oscars of Fashion,” took place in New York City, continuing its tradition as a charity event for the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This year’s theme, “The Garden of Time,” inspired by J.G. Ballard’s short story, brought an array of floral and time-related motifs to the red carpet. Designers and celebrities embraced this theme with creative interpretations that ranged from literal floral embellishments to abstract representations of time. The gala was co-hosted by an array of stars including Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Hemsworth, and Bad Bunny. This event not only highlighted fashion trends but also emphasized the cyclical nature of fashion and the importance of sustainability.

Bridgerton Premiere in Africa

The Bridgerton premiere for its third season, held in South Africa, saw a dazzling display of fashion that beautifully mingled local styles with the series’ signature Regency-era elegance. This event was particularly noted for its striking sartorial choices that diverged from traditional Regency attire towards more contemporary and culturally inspired pieces. The red carpet buzzed with a mix of modern and vintage, showcasing African designers and vibrant patterns that paid homage to the continent’s rich textile heritage.

Celebrities and fashion influencers at the event embraced a “more royal, less Regency” approach to their outfits, highlighting luxurious fabrics and bold, royal-inspired silhouettes that stood out against the more subtle pastel tones typical of the Bridgerton aesthetic.
