By Milcah Tanimu

Tyla, the Grammy award-winning South African singer, stole the spotlight once again as she made her debut appearance at the Met Gala 2024 on Monday. The event took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, United States.

The 22-year-old sensation donned a striking form-fitting Balmain outfit for the occasion. However, her attire made it challenging for her to navigate the stairs at the museum. To assist her, two attendants in tuxedos graciously lifted her, creating a memorable moment as they ascended the staircase together.

Reflecting on her attire and the incident, Tyla described her outfit as inspired by “the sands of time.” The Met Gala’s theme, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” and the dress code, “The Garden of Time,” provided the creative direction for her ensemble, drawing inspiration from J.G. Ballard’s 1962 short story of the same name.

Expressing her delight with the outcome, Tyla expressed her excitement about the unconventional approach taken by her and the creative team. “I just love the outfit and how everything turned out,” she remarked.

Tyla’s entrance at the Met Gala exemplified her unique style and presence, solidifying her status as a fashion icon and musical sensation on the global stage.
