The 2024 Met Gala exuded all the extravagance and elegance one would expect, as designers, fashion icons, and A-list celebrities gathered at New York City’s renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday evening to celebrate fashion. The glamorous event paid tribute to English novelist J.G. Ballard, whose tale, The Garden of Time, tells the story of a count who finds himself besieged by an approaching angry mob, desperate to protect his castle from their wrath. In a surreal twist, he resorts to a peculiar solution: plucking a rose from his garden. The event’s theme, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” delves into the innovative ways in which technology revitalizes garments deemed too aged and delicate for wear.

Amidst the opulent affair, Shine My Crown editors meticulously combed through footage capturing the myriad attendees, spotlighting women of color who effortlessly showcased their personalized couture ensembles with unmatched style and grace.
