Met Gala 2024: Olympians Show off red carpet style

Olympians from across the sports world arrived in their finest for the 2024 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York’s Upper East Side, held on the evening of Monday, 6 May.

The dress code for this exclusive soiree, “A Garden in Time,” is based on the exhibit’s theme, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.”

Photographers and journalists lined the steps outside the prestigious annual fundraising gala, where celebrities, models, and a who’s-who of celebrity athletes made their way inside the notoriously exclusive and secretive party.

Sports stars and Olympians are regularly among the invited attendees. Past athletes making a splash with their fashion A-game have included Simon Biles, Shaun White, Eileen Gu, Sha’Carri Richardson, Nyjah Huston, Naomi Osaka, Noah Lyles, Maria Sharapova, Lindsey Vonn, Allyson Felix, Serena and Venus Williams, Megan Rapinoe, Nia Dennis and Dwayne Wade among others.

Met Gala attendees in sport who made a splash in 2024 include:

Serena Williams glittered in gold, perhaps in a nod to her four Olympic gold medals. The tennis champion’s look included black gloves and diamond jewels. Sister Venus Williams was also in attendance (see below).
