Zendaya Once Again Impresses with Her Met Gala Fashion Choice

When it comes to making a dramatic and memorable fashion statement, few do it like Zendaya. Over the years, the star actress has cemented her status as a true style icon thanks to her fashion choices and her long-time collaboration with her stylist and “image architect,” Law Roach. So it should come as no surprise that when it came to the 2024 Met Gala, Zendaya served up a truly stunning look—a dark and romantic custom gown from Maison Margiela.

For the 2024 Met Gala, Zendaya, who served as one of the event’s co-chairs, and Roach selected a deep blue and dark green striped organza gown that was designed by Margiela creative director John Galliano, which they accessorized with a matching blue Philip Treacy fascinator punctuated by a sweeping feather. The dress was also embellished with metallic green bunches of grapes, flowers and blue birds, a lush touch that helped to drive home the “Garden of Time” theme. The look referenced a dress that Galliano had designed for Christian Dior’s Spring/Summer 1999 haute couture collection.

Zendaya made her Met Gala debut in 2015 and attended every year until 2019, serving memorable looks like a Joan of Arc-inspired chainmail gown from Versace in 2018 and a show-stopping yellow and red floral print ballgown by Dolce&Gabbana in 2017. For the past five years, between pandemic cancellations of the event and work commitments, Zendaya has taken a hiatus from the event. But this year, her triumphant return to the Met Gala, proves that it was well worth the wait.
