The dress Zendaya will wear to the 2024 Met Gala isn’t ready yet

People can be divided into two camps depending on their sartorial preparations. You may be a “planner,” someone who meticulously arranges his ensemble the night before an event, spends the morning ironing or organizing, and mentally archives, sorts, and rearranges his wardrobe whenever he gets the chance. These are the Charlotte Yorks and Monica Gellers of the world. Then there are the ‘spontaneous’ people, those who put together the most perfectly put together outfit in less than half an hour using pieces scattered on the floor of their bedroom and tucked away at the very back of their closet. These are the Carrie Bradshaws and Rachel Greens.

You’d think global superstar and definitive “method dresser” of the red carpet Zendaya would fall into the former camp. But as her stylist and image architect Law Roach revealed in a new profile, the recent one Challengers star is actually the last. Well, at least for one of the most important events of her career. On the first Monday in May, Zendaya will reinforce what we all know by attending the Met Gala as co-chair.

For someone who pioneered a brand new way to approach the red carpet, you’d think her outfit would have been her biggest concern once this particular sunglasses-wearing global editor-in-chief sent her the invite. But when you stay fully booked and busy promoting your latest theatrical releases, the ever-important question of ‘what to wear’ seemingly falls by the wayside.

Speaking to another veteran fashion editor, Roach confirmed that neither he nor Zendaya have seen her Met Gala dress yet. No secret shots in the studio, or sketches that show an illustrated version of the style expert in the piece. According to Roach, the dress in question hasn’t even been made yet. Talk about leaving it too close for comfort.

But fear not, with the dynamic duo on hand – and a bold, yet-to-be-revealed designer at the helm – we have no doubt that Zendaya will be one of the best dressed on the fashion night of nights. With four days until the prestigious ball, Zendaya and Roach confirmed the fitting will take place just two days before she climbs the Met steps. Leaving your Met dress until the last minute may not be the anxiety-inducing mode we’d go with, but remember, this is Roach and Zendaya we’re talking about. We eat what she serves.
