How Chris Hemsworth is preparing to host the 2024 Met Gala

How does a celebrity prepare for the Met Gala? “Get a good stylist,” was the answer Chris Hemsworth‘s funny answer when we asked Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga star last week.

The Australian actor was hand-picked by Fashion‘S Anna Wintour to also co-organize the 2024 Met Gala Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez And Bad bunny. Unusually, it will be Hemsworth’s very first Met Gala — so it will not only be his co-hosting debut, but also his Met Gala debut, period.

“Get a good stylist and get a good team of people who can wear something beautiful for you,” Hemsworth said of his preparation.

“When Anna Wintour called me and asked me to host, I thought, ‘Sure, yeah.’ And I called my agent and said that as a host I definitely have to come up with some funny things. And he says, ‘No no, you’re just greeting people at the event.’

The Met Gala is shrouded in secrecy (that’s part of its appeal), but a co-host usually helps Wintour plan things like the guest list and menu. They have also been carefully selected to broaden the Met Gala’s appeal among different age groups and creative industries, according to the New York Times. In other words, Chris will appeal to a different audience for Zendaya, you know?

“It’s all very mysterious,” Hemsworth continued, “but my wife (Elsa Pataki) is very enthusiastic.” We consider that as confirmation that she is going.

Although considered a fashion Christmas, the Met Gala is actually a fundraiser for the Met’s Costume Institute. This year’s exhibition is called ‘Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion’, which will “push the boundaries of our imagination and invite us to experience the multisensory facets of a garment,” said Met Museum director. Max Hollein. However, the theme for this year’s gala is “The Garden of Time,” which means we’ll likely see a lot of celebrities prove that spring flowers can actually be game-changing.

Hemsworths Furiosa Co-star Anya Taylor Joy – who regularly graced the Met Gala’s best-dressed lists – had this advice for the star.

“Enjoy it,” she said. “And also take a look around the museum before you sit down, because it is incredible to be in a museum when it is so closed. There is nothing better.”

The Met Gala takes place for Australians on Tuesday, May 7 (you can watch it here). Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga will hit theaters on May 24, 2024.
