The 2024 Met Gala, themed "The Garden of Time," inspired by J.G Ballard's 1962 dystopian short story of the same name, took us on a whimsical journey through fashion history with a futuristic twist. Co-chair Zendaya, never one to disappoint, surprised the crowd with a transformation, rocking not one, but two incredible looks throughout the evening. Here's a look at 10 celebrities who brought their A-game to the "Garden":

Zendaya

Living up to her co-chair duties, Zendaya delivered a fashion masterclass. She started with a a full on villain vibe in a breathtaking Maison Margiela Artisanal by John Galliano, a piece that whispered of timeless elegance wrapped up in a striped royal blue and emerald green one shouldered gown, adorned with a net mesh and tulle-feathered fascinator. Later, she reappeared in a 1996 John Galliano masterpiece, which included a lace corset bodice with off the shoulder sleeves that went perfectly with the big puffy skirt that seemed to bloom with the flower bouquet fascinator from another era.
