The co-chairs for this year’s Met Gala have been announced.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art revealed on Feb. 15 that Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny and Chris Hemsworth will serve as the Costume Institute Benefit event’s co-chairs. Honorary chairs are Loewe creative director Jonathan Anderson and TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew.

This year will mark Bad Bunny’s third year at the Met, while Hemsworth will attend his first Met as a co-host. Zendaya has attended the Met five times and Lopez is a 13-time attendee.

The stars, along with Vogue’s Anna Wintour will welcome guests to the museum for an exhibition entitled “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.”

Vogue described this year’s “Garden of Time” theme as one that has “nothing to do with the Brothers Grimm or Disney, but is rather a celebration of clothing and fashion so fragile that it can’t ever be worn again — and are therefore sleeping beauties in the scrupulously maintained archives of The Costume Institute … we can expect to see a range of fashion on display, dating back as far as a 17th-century Elizabethan-era English bodice, that embodies the beauty of the natural world — its fragility and its inevitable decay. More modern, less delicate pieces imbued with the same spirit as the spotlit fashions will be showcased alongside them, and broken up into three sub-themes: Land, Sea and Sky.”

Vogue also noted the dress code was inspired by a short story of the same name written by JG Ballard in 1962. (Ballard’s The Empire of the Sun was adapted into a film by Steven Spielberg.)

The Benefit takes place annually on the first Monday in May and marks the opening of The Costume Institute’s spring exhibition. To date, the Benefit has raised more than $223.5 million for The Costume Institute under the leadership of Met Trustee Wintour.

The 2024 Met Gala will take place on May 6.

Last year’s Met Gala, with its Karl Lagerfeld theme, drew massive attention for red-carpet looks that included both Doja Cat and Jared Leto dressed as his cat Choupette, Jessica Chastain channeling the late designer’s look and a plethora of iconic Chanel motifs such as camellias and pearls.
