Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.

This year's Met Gala theme would not have impressed The Devil Wears Prada's demon magazine editor Miranda Priestly, but it hasn't stopped a string of stars from walking the green carpet in their garden-inspired garments.

A-listers were invited to be imaginative with the 2024 dress code, The Garden of Time, which was inspired by a short story of the same name by JG Ballard.

Most stars took it literally, taking inspiration from flowers, petals, branches and leaves, while others played around with the short story's themes of time and history.

Here are 21 of the most eye-catching outfits:

1. Camila Cabello badly needs a pair of gloves

Normally when stars talk about wearing ice, they're referring to diamonds. In Camila Cabello's case, however, she's referring to actual frozen water.

"My hands are really cold," the singer said, adding she was planning to pass the huge block on to someone else after she reached the top of the stairs. "I can't feel my hands."

The large block of ice, which featured a rose in the centre, accessorised her Ludovic de Saint Sernin gown, which featured 250,000 crystals and reportedly took more than 450 hours to make.

2. Levy and Edebiri split themselves in two

The Bear actress Ayo Edebiri and Schitt's Creek star Dan Levy both opted to keep their floral designs on the down low, with outfits that looked traditional from the top but bloomed from the waist down.

Edebiri wore a backless column dress with a hand-embroidered floral pattern intended to create the illusion of blossoming.

Similarly, Levy wore what looked like a classic suit from the top half, but which faded a into a bright floral motif lower down.

3. Demi Moore is ready for a spot of archery

We've got to hand it to her, Demi Moore had one of the best looks of the night, even if she forgot to bring a bow to go with her arrows.

The actress's velvet dress, designed by Harris Reed, was adorned with huge pink peonies made from vintage archival wallpaper.

Reed said the dress took more than 5,000 hours to make, adding that it was designed so the flowers would appear to decay as the design flowed further down the dress.
