Ariana Grande Dazzles in Pearly White Gown at 2024 Met Gala

Ariana Grande has already been in a fairytale mind-set while filming her role as Glinda the Good Witch in the upcoming Wicked films, and on Monday (May 6), she was able to channel that fantastical vibe on the 2024 Met Gala red carpet.

The pop superstar wore a custom gown on the carpet, designed by Loewe creative director Jonathan Anderson, with a sculpted bodice made entirely of mother of pearl and a flowing white skirt, accented with floral eye decorations.

During an interview with La La Anthony on the Vogue livestream, Grande explained the inspiration behind the look and said that mother of pearl happens to be her birthstone, while also relating to her Wicked role.

“I loved the tie-in of the opalescence and little hues of pink and green for Glinda’s bubble and for Wicked,” she said. “Pearls are just made in the most unexpected of ways. You never know what beautiful things you will find in unexpected places.”

When Anthony asked about Wicked — based on the beloved Broadway musical — Grande couldn’t reveal too much ahead of the first part hitting theaters in November, but she did gush about her co-star Cynthia Erivo and her experience on set.

“It was just the most extraordinary, transformative and beautiful experience I’ve ever had in my life,” Grande told Anthony. “I love the project so much more now, and I’ve loved it since i was 10 years old. Just to be able to be a part of its world and find new truths with Cynthia in these women.”

Grande and Erivo were reunited on the Met Gala carpet, where they embodied their two characters, with Grande’s pure-white look contrasting Erivo’s black floral look.
