The great and good of the celebrity world are set to gather at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art (MMA) on Monday, for the glitziest event of the year — the 2024 Met Gala. Fashion's biggest night has a tendency of producing the kind of fierce looks that will dominate glossies and Instagram feeds for the foreseeable. And you can watch every moment with Met Gala live streams.

With the "Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion" exhibition currently being held in the MMA's Anna Wintour Costume Center, it was an obvious choice for this year's theme. Guests are being asked to adhere to the rather cryptic 'The Garden of Time' dress code, meaning that they can let their imaginations run wild.

As ever, the guest list will be a who's who of film, TV, music, fashion and sport. The co-chairs of the 2024 Met Gala are Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Hemsworth, Bad Bunny and Anna Wintour — not a bad start!

And with the hottest ticket in town costing a reported $75,000, it's no wonder that the word 'exclusive' is so synonymous with this event.

Doja Cat stole the show last year, dressing as... well, a cat. So it will be fascinating to see who will stand out the most this year, following in the unforgettable footsteps of Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Grimes and Cardi B.

Here's everything you need to watch the 2024 Met Gala online and for free.
