Demi Lovato makes a surprise return to the 2024 Met Gala, 8 years after ‘difficult’ experience

Demi Lovato has returned to the Met Gala!

After an eight-year absence, the “Confident” singer took to the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday for fashion’s biggest night — and made a glamorous statement.

Lovato, 31, kept to this year’s theme, “The Garden of Time,” in a sleek chrome dress by Prabal Gurung. Lovato’s monotone dress was adorned with elegant flowers that flowed from the top of the halter bust down to the foot-length train with lace detailing.

On her neck – next to her tattoos – was a De Beers diamond piece.

For her glam, the “Tell Me You Love Me” singer had sparkling silver eyeshadow with a black-accented shadow blended outside her lids, completing the glam with a chic nude pout.

Lovato opted for a change in her hair, trading in her short bob for long dark locks, which flowed to the tip of her back.

Before hitting the green carpet, Lovato took to her Instagram Story to reveal her return and show off her dress.

Lovato last attended the Met Gala in 2016, when she was part of the Moschino crew and posed alongside designer Jeremy Scott and rapper Nicki Minaj. After the event, Lovato opened up about the evening and teased that it might be her last time at the fundraising event.

“This photo pretty much summed up my first and probably last meeting???,” the singer wrote, adding some appropriate hashtags. “#cool #sof***ingawkward #notforme #sweatpants #forensicfiles #whatsgood,” she captioned the photo – which has since been deleted.

Lovato later updated the post – clearing up any speculation about a feud with Minaj.

“Ps, some of y’all need to learn how to take a joke,” Lovato added. “I’m obviously laughing at the fact that 1. I look incredibly uncomfortable and 2. the shadow cast in this photo is actually killing me???.”

It’s safe to say Lovato is feeling a little more confident as she took the carpet tonight.
