Met Gala 2024: Our Picks for Best and Worst Dressed Latino Stars

Hey Muze,

Did you catch the Met Gala red carpet last night? While I understand if your busy schedule kept you occupied, I indulged from the comfort of my friend’s living room. The Met Gala presented a unique theme, celebrating couture from the past and revitalizing the beauty of fashion archived for years.

As a devoted enthusiast of vintage fashion, I saw this as an excellent opportunity for celebrities to delve into the archives of designers like Galliano for Dior, Oscar de la Renta, and Carolina Herrera. However, despite their presence, I believe there was untapped potential with these brands. Ultimately, the true stars of the night were the remarkable one-of-a-kind pieces tailored for this moment.

Who stole your attention? Was it Karol G, one of the most-anticipated guests, or Jennifer Lopez in Schiaparelli? Let’s dissect each aspect of this year’s Met Gala

Jennifer Lopez

Let’s begin with the co-chair of The Met Gala this year, Miss Jennifer Lopez, adorned in Schiaparelli by Daniel Roseberry. Alright, hear me out—and don’t kill me—I anticipated more from JLO. It’s a look reminiscent of what we’ve witnessed on countless other red carpets. Particularly with this collaboration, I had hoped for a sculpted bronze bust, an almost statuesque situation. Nevertheless, she exuded radiance.

Karol G

Talking about expecting more while doing the most is Karol G in Marc Jacobs. Beautiful elements, but not quite executed to perfection. It’s giving costume, not custom. The silhouette did her no favors and even appeared to make her look shorter than usual. Marc Jacobs’ house codes were barely discernible, except for the platform shoes. However, she’s La Bichota and has the liberty to pursue whatever style she desires. What she undeniably achieved was a display of full commitment and confidence, which I admire above all else.

Eiza González

A true Vanilla Orchid in Del Core. Inspired by the national flower of Mexico, she looked like a garden fairy queen, the shades of blush and movement of the silk organza wrapped around her beautifully as if she was walking through a garden and being kissed by the wind. Also, the Cartier jewelry was the perfect touch.

Bad Bunny

Another Latino as a Met Gala Co-Chair, Mr. Benito, wearing custom Margiela Artisanal by Galliano, is everything right in the world. This look is perfectly Bad Bunny and Count Axel Coded from the book “Garden of Time,” the Dress code this year. Everything, from the reversed swatched hat to the in-process tailoring smoking jacket and the bunny hair TABI boots. Take notes, people, this is how you stay on theme and create a moment.


Shakira Shakira… let’s talk, call me. This red Carolina Herrera dress by Wes Gordon is undeniably beautiful and encapsulates the essence of the brand. However, it seems like a case of the dress overpowering the wearer rather than the wearer commanding the dress. The choice of shoes leans towards a beauty queen aesthetic, and the hairstyle appears too casual for the occasion. I would have preferred a soft Hollywood wave, complemented by dewy skin, paired with a classic stiletto pump.

Cardi B

Cardi, you’re usually so on point with your Met Gala looks, however, I would’ve preferred you wore your after-party look, to be honest. Red is such a great color for you.

Rauw Alejandro

Rauw, in his “revenge era,” he knew showing his tattooed arms would send a certain Spanish songstress spinning. Wearing custom Ludovic de Saint Sernin, he radiated sex appeal and tender masculinity all at once.

Zoe Saldaña

Talking about fairies dancing through the garden of the Met, it’s Zoe Saldana in Chloe. Perfection!

Colman Domingo

I thought we talked about this, Colman Domingo. We can’t just keep serving like this in Willy Chavarria. Honestly, this man can do no wrong; he is always impeccable with his choices. The beautiful use of lilies within the look, from the white used to the simplicity of the cape and oversized tailoring, shows the beauty of a calla. The look was also created in honor of Chadwick Boseman and Andre Leon Tally, who always wore capes to the MET.

Our Latino stars always shine bright with the looks they decide to wear and really never disappoint. Yes, I would’ve preferred something more from some, but then again, I’m sitting on a couch in my vintage silk Dior PJs, eating ice cream with my bestie while watching the live stream.

With love from your fairy godmother,
