Tory Burch Teases She’s Designing a Met Gala Dress for an Actor: ‘I’m Sworn to Secrecy’ (Exclusive)

Tory Burch is gearing up for the 2024 Met Gala.

Burch, 57, exclusively opened up to Us Weekly about what she has up her sleeves for the upcoming ball, which will take place on Monday, May 6. “I’m working on a couple dresses right now for the Met,” Burch teased at the TIME100 Gala on Thursday, April 25. “It’s so much fun to see it come to life.”

While she’s been “sworn to secrecy” on who the gown is being designed for, Burch hinted that the A-lister is an actor.

She also praised the gala’s theme, which is “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” with a “Garden of Time” dress code. “It’s always just so much fun,” the designer told Us. “I think it’s going to be really just quite beautiful and feminine. It’s just a lot of fun. We always have drinks before at our apartment and then go.”

Burch has dressed a number of celebrities for the Met Gala through the years. In 2023, both Emily Ratajkowski and Phoebe Bridgers sported her designs.

Ratajkowski, 32, for her part, stunned in a nude gown featuring a plunging neckline, a drop waist and a pleated skirt. She perfectly executed the “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” theme with pearl embellishments and a bow in her hair, some of the late designer’s favorite accessories.

For glam, the model donned smokey eyeshadow and a nude lip. She dressed the look up even more with diamond earrings and matching rings.

Bridgers, 29, meanwhile, graced the iconic New York City steps in a pearl adorned gown of her own. Her frock featured cutouts on her chest, dainty straps and an airy train. She teamed her ensemble with drop pearl earrings and silver hair.
