Zendaya will Co-chair This Year’s Met Gala

Fashionista Zendaya will serve as co-chair of this year’s Met Gala.

We’ve watched Zendaya, a former Disney Princess, become a fashion mogul right before our eyes. That’s why her being named this year’s co-chair is a natural fit.

The Met Gala is one of the most exclusive and private fashion events in history. As a notoriously lavish and exquisite occasion, only the elite are invited to showcase their aligned themed custom couture. The “Oscars of Fashion” recently released the announcement of the 2024 Met Gala Co-Chairs and Zendaya’s name has caught everyone’s eye.

Zendaya has continued to evolve, take risks, embrace new spaces, and collaborate with some of the most iconic fashion brands thus far in her career. She’s not only reputable as a talented actress and singer, but as a fashion muse. If Zendaya is invited or confirmed to attend a particular event, it’s safe to assume that everyone is preparing for an iconic moment when she hits the carpet. Also, we know that Law Roach, legendary celebrity stylist and innovator, is more than likely always behind the iconic vision of his muse. Over the years, Zendaya has been invited multiple times as a guest to the Met Gala where she consistently stunned with capturing the specific themes accurately. Now, it’s officially her turn to have a seat in the Met Gala Co-chair spot.

Once the official theme of this upcoming Met Gala was released, fans took to social media to express their excitement for Zendaya to achieve this milestone in her career. As a former Disney Princess, it seems that this theme is quite nostalgic for the traditional Disney history. “The Met announced “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion as the theme for the 2024 Met Gala and spring exhibit at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in November 2023. The exhibit showcases clothing and fashion ‘so fragile that it can’t ever be worn again,’ or ‘sleeping beauties’ in the institute’s archives …” (upi). Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, and Chris Hemisworth are confirmed to fill the remaining Co-chairs.

Hi! I can eat an entire jar of pickles in one setting and I LOVE to binge watch shows on Netflix. One of the most important quotes to me:
