Bad Bunny Dazzles at 2024 Met Gala With Fairytale Flair: Learn the Symbolism Behind His Look

Bad Bunny’s style choices have always been unpredictable. As a co-chair of the 2024 Met Gala, he was expected to deliver an unforgettable fashion statement, and he certainly lived up to the hype.

His red-carpet appearance blended personal identity, cultural homage and fairytale fantasy, perfectly encapsulating the “Garden of Time” dress code.


His striking look consisted of a custom outfit from the Maison Margiela Artisanal Collection by John Galliano. Benito’s ensemble was laden with symbolic and cultural references; it featured a black satin corset and a navy barathea wool smoking jacket adorned with black grosgrain lapels. The jacket’s stitching was notably unusual, with an inside-out appearance that added an avant-garde twist to his attire.

Complementing the look was his gigantic beret made of blue foam paired with tiny sunglasses. This choice of headwear added a dramatic flair that was both whimsical and fashion-forward. On his feet, the “Me Porto Bonito” singer sported shoes that were no less unusual — they were crafted to resemble the shape of a goat, further enhancing the eccentric, storybook theme of his outfit.

Adding a personal touch and a nod to his heritage, the Puerto Rican hitmaker carried a black Flor de Maga, the national flower of Puerto Rico, which symbolizes the island’s bravery and resilience during challenging times.

Bad Bunny has never been afraid to rock unusually bold styles since his emergence in the mid-2010s; check out his style evolution throughout the years here.

The 2024 Met Gala is also co-hosted by Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez and Chris Hemsworth.
