The Met Gala 2024 commenced at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on May 6, with top-tier celebrities gracing the red carpet adorned in captivating attire.

Ever wondered about the cost of tickets for this exclusive event? Well, it’s more than a down payment on a home, indeed! The ticket prices for the prestigious Met Gala have surged by 50 percent compared to the previous year. Last year’s official seat was priced at $50,000 (approximately Rs 41,72,175), whereas this year’s cost has escalated to $75,000 (approximately Rs 6,260,250). In its inaugural year, tickets were a mere $1,000.

What about celebrities’ expenses? The minimum table cost is a staggering $350,000 (approximately Rs 2,92,205,000). However, despite the $75,000 ticket price, celebrities typically don’t foot the bill. Designers often purchase tables and extend invitations to celebrities to showcase their outfits. Occasionally, individuals with individual tickets may also secure seats at sponsored tables.

But can just anyone buy a ticket to the Met Gala? No, invitations are exclusive, so not everyone can purchase a ticket.

Attendees are treated to a range of experiences inside the Met Gala, including walking the red carpet, enjoying cocktail hour, viewing the Met’s exhibit, indulging in a formal dinner, and witnessing surprise performances.

Last year’s Met Gala raised nearly $22 million with approximately 400 guests in attendance.

On day one of Met Gala 2024, several Bollywood luminaries graced the red carpet, such as Alia Bhatt, Isha Ambani, Sabyasachi, Sudha Reddy, among others. Hollywood‘s elite also turned heads at the prestigious event, with notable personalities like Zendeya, Doja Cat, Tyla, Chris Hemsworth, Kim Kardashian, Camila Cabello, and more making appearances.
