“I’m just excited to see everyone’s outfits. Everyone looks amazing in here. Being here on my 22nd birthday is amazing,” Reese told WWD while leaving The Mark Hotel ahead of the event.

Reese has gained fans’ attention for her style outside the court. On the WNBA Draft red carpet, she wore a sparkling hooded dress from Bronx and Banco with heels by Christian Louboutin. The player usually works with stylist Naomi Elizée for her looks.

The athlete wasn’t the only guest making a debut at this year’s Met Gala. Lauren Sanchez, fiancée of Jeff Bezos, was invited to the event for the first time. She wore a gown by Oscar de la Renta.

The Met Gala raises funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and celebrates the Costume Institute’s annual exhibits. This year’s theme, “The Garden of Time,” nods to the “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” exhibit, which will open to the public on Friday. The 2024 event is cochaired by Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth and Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour.
