The Met Gala 2024 Red Carpet Amidst City Turmoil

In a city rife with events, New Yorkers witnessed a juxtaposition of glamour and unrest on Monday, as the Met Gala unfolded amidst a backdrop of political and social upheaval.

As celebrities descended upon the Metropolitan Museum of Art for fashion’s grandest night, another scene unfolded just blocks away. Pro-Palestinian protesters clashed with police along Madison Avenue and East 80th Street, highlighting the city’s charged atmosphere.

Meanwhile, Columbia University’s decision to cancel its main commencement ceremony due to ongoing protests further underscored the tensions gripping the city.

Against this tumultuous backdrop, the Met Gala proceeded, with iconic moments such as Gigi Hadid’s dazzling Thom Browne gown adorned with 2.8 million beads making its way up the steps.

Despite the chaos surrounding the city, the event remained a beacon of fashion and culture, offering a moment of respite amidst the turmoil.
